Glycine Bronze Combat Sub Joins the Herd..

Post by Thunder1 » February 19th 2019, 4:59pm

Well, earlier this morning, this bad boy showed up..it's a Glycine Bronze Combat Sub...the case(w/o the crown) measures 42mm wide and it is quite thin...the dial is a matt forest green, and is darker on the bottom half(gradient?)...the bezel appears to be either dark gray or even possibly dark brown..either way, it is a nice accent for both the bronze case and the green dial...the lugs, while not drilled, are short and slope downwards nicely..if you like the feel of a 40mm watch, you will enjoy the feel of this one as well..the model # is GLO281..the movement is the GL224, but I'm not sure if it is an ETA 2824 or a Sellita SW200-1..The gray leather strap seems rather comfortable, despite being new..and as Rusty has said, it has the appearance of a subway wall(or the brick exterior of many homes in the SW)..oddly enough, the buckle is SS, but has the appearance of bronze..I've only had it for the larger part of one day, but the build quality I would say is on par w/Hamilton, Oris, Tissot, etc. offerings, and a little nicer than Steinhart..

This is my 2nd purchase from them(an Airman Double Twelve is the other)..picked it up for $399.00 from Glycine-Direct(on Ebay)..a couple of guys at work have also picked up Airman DTs from them, and are happy w/ them to date..the blue, brown, and black dials are also interesting..

These 2 40mm Moon Phases have also caught my attention, especially at their $361.00 price points...

Ebels are a lot like women that lack a low cut dress that zips up the side...neither get the love that they deserve...

Sounds good..btw, do you think the color of the bezel is a dark gray or a dark brown ?..

Sharp as a tack, seriously. As conj would say, damn.
