Glycine Combat Sub

The Glycine combat sub is a popular watch that offers great value for money and is often mentioned as an affordable alternative to the Rolex Submariner. It's available in different sizes and colors, ranging from 42mm to 48mm. It features an in-house Glycine automatic movement GL 224, which is very reliable and has a 38h power reserve.

The combat sub has a date function with a display at the 3 o'clock position. The glass is made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The uni-directional rotating bezel is made of silver-tone stainless steel with a black aluminum bezel, providing a very classic and timeless look.

This divers watch is relatively thin for its size, with a thickness of 10.6mm. The case back is solid, with the Glycine logo etched in. The combat sub has a water resistance of 200m and is available on a nato or a steel bracelet.

This watch has a nice vintage feel, looking similar to divers in the 60s yet with the features of modern watches.

We personally like the GL0083 model, which has a lug width of 22mm. Although this watch wears quite large with a lug to lug distance of 52mm, we think the Glycine Combat Sub can be considered as a one of the best Rolex Submariner alternatives.
