This latest version of the Glycine Combat Sub has a lot to offer and I’m excited to share my experience with this enticing timepiece.
Let’s dive into it.
In general, Glycine is an enthusiast’s brand. However, since I’ve spotted quite a few of them in the wild, I assume it’s more common than you’d think.
When I worked in retail and spotted someone wearing a watch, I enjoyed chit-chatting about horology with them.
This brand has a long history and a number of merits to its name. They created one of the early regular production automatic winding systems in the 1930s. The Airman was a favorite of American pilots in Vietnam, often bought at army post exchanges (PX).
While Glycine is no longer a family-owned independent brand, they’ve remained remarkably their own thing. They’re probably the most thoughtful brand in their price range when it comes to sizes.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
