Nice pics of the blue option, I have this identical Sub Com Bronze to you in brown; there appears to be three options in bronze for this watch. I much prefer this one, yours to the current one for sale; I find the lume on this model to be the best of all three, and although I like the Tudor look; much prefer the little bit of difference in this model you and I own. Does look real nice in the blue, maybe I should buy a stable mate for my brown one!! When this model comes around again.

I was thinking I need a waterproof watch because I can’t read the busy dial on my Seiko SNA01, but I can’t fathom alleged dive watches with leather bands and that is a deal-killer.

If I were to guess it's because a lot of people just don't use them for their intended purposes and the leather straps give the aesthetic that's desired for those people. How many people who own dive watches get even remotely close to the water resistance on them?

Some seiko ship with extra silicone band ,even when the main band is steel!!!! So do some other companies. but as the man said a lot of people don't ever even get the watch wet; I know I don't and I have three diver watches!!!

Yes, the case will develop patina over time.

Still a no go for me but just because i am not into bronze watches. All in all it looks like a good watch. Looks much improved compared to other GL models.

This style isn't my cup of tea, but as a recent Glycine owner (Combat 6) I can say that it is one of the most impressive watches (build/design/accuracy) I've come across in recent years. It's also become one of my favorites.

No, I don't think it's junk at all--someday I hope to own one myself (but I'm more into their stainless line myself). Congrats on getting in on it and don't forget to post some photos when it arrives!

Kind of miffed - I would totally buy the blue one over the brown I have from the last round. Anyone wanna trade? :D

At least they seem to have a decent strap and buckle now, the GLO 188 I bought 13 months ago had the worst strap and buckle which I replaced quick smart. But it did have a much better dial with large applied lume indices and dots. It does have a sellita SW200 movement, but I don't necessarily think it has to be an Invicta affected watch as the rest of the watch particularly the dial and lume is great. But apart from the logo it seems hard to tell the difference.

Evidently there are better prices elsewhere--so long as you're not picky about the color! Both screen shots reflect Ashford prices as of 2:00 PM (8/18/20)

Another Invicta posing as a Glycine. I have 3 Glycines. Two are "Pre-Invicta" Takeover and the third is post. Thankfully it still had the ETA 2836-2 (GMT) movement, but definitely a quality difference that was immediately noticeable. One of the "Pre-Invictas' is a white faced Airman Base 22 GMT on original Jubilee bracelet from 2014-15. These watches have a screw down Bezel Lock to keep them tightly in place once set. It works perfectly. I also have a 42mm Sub Combat with blue dial, complete 1-12 Arabic numbering, and orange bezel with ETA 2824-2, and they're great watches. I get a lot of comments on the color combination of the Sub. At the end of 2018 I bought a "Vintage" styled 38mm Airman GMT with black dial, stainless 24hr bezel with the numbers done in a rose/bronze color. Has a nice white stitched black leather strap and the good movement. In closer examination I realized they put the crowns on incorrectly. The big crown with cross hatching that's for locking the bezel is being used to set the time. The smaller logo crown that's supposed to be for time setting is on the Bezel Lock and it's too small so it won't go down far enough to do what it's supposed to. The piece that bites into the teeth of the bezel moves around freely because of it, the bezel doesn't lock, and it makes a noise that just really pi-ses me off. I bought direct from Glycine/Invicta and get no response from the 10 times I've contacted them! WTH?? This has all been since the Invicta takeover. I've heard people say they're safe because their's has the "Old Glycine Logo" and not the logo with the "wings", so it's Pre-Invicta. WRONG! Both of mine from 4 to 5 years ago have the 3 Dimensional Logo with the "wings" and the one from 2018 has the old, "Original" logo. I know there are a ton of people who love their Invictas and I'm happy for you all and respect the fact that you like what you like. However, there is a massive quality and service difference since the changeover. It kind of sucks. My personal jeweler is going to switch the crowns around for me. RIDICULOUS! Oh, for those who say they're safe because they've got an "Old Logo" model, take a look at the watch for sale....Hmmmm! Also, the retail is $1,650? WHEN AND WHERE WAS THIS PRICED AT THAT?? If that's the case I now have $15K worth of Glycines! Anyone interested? NOT! It's classic Invicta Sales Marketing at work! Better get my boots on because it's getting kind of deep around here already. Is this place now an offshoot of EVINE LIVE/SHOP HQ?? I'm just asking!

Well I hope you and everyone else crashed Hodinkee's website when they sold a re-issued classic 18K gold grail watch for $400 a piece, limited to 50 production units. Either they were on crack, or you had a little fun with Photoshop. Well done, great way to prove your point.

Yet another "the worst deal in the history of trade deals". You can get this one cheaper with the next day shipping. The only reason in my opinion to consider getting this drop is if you're buying outside of US/CA - less chances of custom duty through the Drop than other websites (based on my personal experience only with shipping to EU :)
