Glycine Combat Sub Bronze Watch Review - A Budget Tudor Black Bay Bron
It is discontinued, but I still bought mine new from an online retailer and it is not hard to find them at significant discounts online (or even at Costco of all places). This might be because Invicta owns the Glycine brand, and that seems to be Invicta's business model. Either way, thanks to a discount code, I paid just over $300 for the bronze Combat Sub

[Glycine Combat Sub] New addition to the collection
I just recently picked up this Glycine Combat Sub from another redditor. The pebbled dial on this thing is amazing and I think its definitely my favourite of the combat sub variants. It brings a bit of a Black Bay, Submariner, and Explorer vibe all thrown together for something that is extremely eye catching.

[Breitling] Graduation Gift - Navitimer
I think Glycine makes a great affordable diver. You'll hear people howl about Invicta owning them, but I really like my Combat Sub. It doesn't look like just another Submariner homage and it's well-made. I currently have a trio of Glycines and enjoy them all.
Awesome watch!!
Awesome,comfy and well made. Extremely pleased with my purchase.

[Advice] Rugged sub $1000/500 watches like Sinn 856 / Sinn U50 / Rolex Exporer 2
A Glycine Combat sub is basically a tool/field/military/dive watch combination all in one watch, and you can pick one up for $300-400. There is nothing special about the steel that will prevent dings. But honestly, I use mine like a tool and if it has some dings after a few years, that's either character or if it bugs me, I'll buy a new one.
