    New Combat Sub Vintage!?

    I have been looking at the Combat Sub as an eventual addition to my watch collection and have been searching ebay, the Glycine web pages, and this forum to look at all the variation to determine which one I want to purchase. I found the Glycine Facebook page and they had an "in the works" picture posted on 10 April of a Combat Sub Vintage model. It think it is absolutely amazing! I love dials with numerals and a date window so this checks those boxes for me. I'd like to hear thoughts from other Combat Sub fans.

    I might have to have one of those!

    Current collection: 3 Seiko, 2 Bulova, 2 Steinhart, 2 Casio, 1 Glycine, 1 Deep Blue and 2 Invictas, or perhaps that should be Invicti!

    It's the only picture I've been able to find of it anywhere. Hopefully more details will be released in the near future.

    It looks a bit too much like a Rolex 6538 Bond. I like the Combat models but it just might be a little too much homage and lack the originality that Glycine could have.
    The Airman models are much more original in design it seems.You just don't see watches that resemble the Airman configuration that much. My Golden Eye is different because of the colors only. Otherwise it looks pretty much like every homage Submariner with a few small differences. The 3-6-9 dial is a variation on the more vintage Rolex dial themes that are available.

    Does to me. Hopefully not too much...and it doesn't appear to be overly so.

    So Glycine is going to do a homage of a Steinhart that's doing a homage of a Rolex and it also kind of looks like a Tudor Black Bay 58?

    I'm getting dizzy, I need to sit down.

    Well the "Vintage Inspired Diver" Rolex Homage thing has been a money maker for a lot of brands in recent years, I can see why the decision makers at Glycine would like to cash in with a new line of Combat Subs. They're late to the party, but better late then never I suppose.

    The "Vintage Style" "Pepsi Bezel" Sub they're selling on Drop looks like it's part of a much larger marketing plan moving forward. Curious to see what other "Vintage" models will be introduced this year and next.
