April 10, 2018 Deals By

Though the name Glycine probably doesn’t ring too many bells unless you’re a hardcore watch enthusiast, the brand has had a long history of making tool watches (most notably aviation watches) since its founding in 1914. The brand’s Combat Sub dive watch, for example, is an excellent example of a usable tool that has some vintage panache. It’s powered by a movement based on the venerable ETA 2824 automatic and features a unidirectional timing bezel and a 42mm case good for a 200-meter depth rating.

The Combat Sub’s MSRP is around $1,500, but usually, you can find them at online retailers closer to $600. Still, Massdrop is offering even bigger savings with a campaign that’s marked down the watch’s price to just $380. That’s a fantastic price for any mechanical dive watch, let alone one with a Swiss automatic movement inside and vintage-inspired looks.
