    Maybe it didn’t decrease when they had the new logo. I had one of the subs before invicta and one after invicta. Both were cool, the one with the new logo was even better, because it had an AR coating on the crystal which the old version didn’t have.
    Still, when I look at the new versions of the subs than I see:

    1. Old logo on new versions is NOT applied as was the new “invicta” logo.
    2. The date is on most of the subs on a standard white background whereas the ones with the “invicta” logo had date windows on black background.

    That’s a big disappointment for me. Just take a look (maybe not a sub, but a stealth version with white date like on the combat gl0297-0299...jeez)

    Why do people think that invicta changed the logo? The new winged logo was pre invicta. This is a fact. Same year (2014), but the previous owners came up with the new logo as a 100 year anniversary logo to celebrate glycine’s history with pilots watches. This logo has already been discontinued under invicta. As has from what I can see some of the short cutting previously seen such as the absence of drilled lugs and crown stem o-rings.

    So the “inferior” winged logo will actually end up being collectible when people realize the facts behind it. It sounds to me, under invicta, glycine is very committed to preserving their legacy.

    It's not. It's just style differences in particular models. The black date wheel is just an option from ETA/Sellita and doesn't add any cost.

    My brand new GL0185 with the printed crown logo has a white-on-black date wheel.

    Also, the "wings" logo may look applied but upon closer inspection, it's actually just thickly applied printing or a decal.

    Sorry, it was just a shorthand i used, because most of us identify the change of the logo with invicta. I don’t have a problem with it. Actually, I do own one and think that with the applied logo it looks fantastic

    So what you are saying is, that someone at Glycine thought: “well, the white date background in gl0297 looks much better, than it would look with a black background” - as it was on the old models?

    Glycine or Invicta Combat Sub, both are good values for the money. I would not have purchased a $1,000 Glycine Combat Sub, but I have purchased 3 Invicta combat subs at $350 each.

    I don't work at Glycine, so I really don't know what they were thinking.

    So you do get my point? Cause before that, you were saying, that it’s not a cost issue... I actually know: it is. Standard on the Sellita movement at the date window is white. Everything else is extra cost. The same goes for applied logo.

    don't know about logos or date wheel costs, but so far this particular Combat Sub keeps good time. I set it against this G-Shock (radio time signal) 48 hours ago.

    If it's a penny for your thoughts and you put in your two cents worth, then someone, somewhere is making a penny.

    I'll be able to "play" soon...I ordered a GL0095 today-that's the 48mm version of the same colorway of the OPs watch. I also ordered a custom grey strap and buckle package from Toshi straps to go with it. Looking forward to it getting here from Ashford/watchgooroo. This is my first post in the Glycine sub-forum, and while I know that some WUS folks cringe at the 46s/48s, I have a 9" wrist and I "cringe" when reading the bulk of the posters saying 41/42/43 watches are "huge". In addition to my huge wrist, I like bigger dials and watches anyway. I'll post pics when I can pair it up with the strap (mid-June).
