I have a Glycine watch and enjoy it very much and so will you.

I own a Combat Sub and Airman. No Squale as yet, but I鈥檓 looking. Fascinated with their history and the cases they produced for so many other brands.

How鈥檚 the experience with the combat sub?

Combat Sub. One of the coolest watch names ever.

With value in mind definitely the Glycine (@ c.$300) - love that it bridges both dive and field watches. Never seen Squale prices competitive enough to challenge it for value.

Glycine's certainly sell cheap - ridiculously cheap on some discount sites, almost giving them that "mall watch" vibe that Tag Heuer picked up in the past - so I'm not surprised to see the voting going the way it's going. Squale's are the better watch however, and if people take a step back and think of what a Squale offers, and its price relative to more expensive divers, there's an absolute case to be made for it. But I guess most people are thinking, "I have a bright and shiny Glycine, and it runs well and it's 'Swiss', and it was super cheap, so it gets my vote..." but I do think there's more to the equation at hand.

Hey JX, the Combat Sub comes in many variations of course. I own the GL0087. The watch is extremely well built. It is easy to read and ever reliable. Most notably it features a very thin case which makes it super versatile. Haven鈥檛 had a bad experience with it in the years I owned it.

Pardon the fish tank lights. Just took it out of the box to show how thin the case is 鈥 馃 馃悹 (200m water resistance too).

2 completely different price ranges and histories behind these brands so incomparable with each other really but if I had to choose which is for me I'd go for glycine purely on more range of watches .

Yes if your got a grand or more squales have alot of history too which is why I think it's unfair to put these 2 brands head to head if you do it it should be on what in your opinion looks better for you .

For just a second, I thought this battle was between a Glycine Combat Sub and a JLC Atmos clock. I was very happy during that second.
