Costco: Glycine GL0083 Combat Sub 42mm – $239.97
($251.97 for non members)
UPDATE: Looks like these have sold out as of Wednesday afternoon.
Six years ago these watches were going for $400. And they’re worth every penny of that original, four hundred dollar asking price. $240 – $252 is a steal.
- Swiss automatic movement (2824).
- Hacks and hand winds.
- Great feel to the crown and stem.
- Sapphire crystal
- 200m water resistance.
- Surprisingly thin (10.6mm) for a dive watch. It should slide relatively easy under a shirt cuff.
I see someone has gone to the Costanza school of sensual posing.
On sale for $240 if you’re a Costco member, but even non members can pick one up if you’re willing to pay a 5% non-member surcharge.
And since it’s Costco, pretty sure you’ll be getting the real deal with a real warranty(?). It’s not like you’re buying a “new with defects” one off some knucklhead on eBay. (RE that eBay listing… I hereby reserve “Crown is fell out“ as my last words. Thanks.)
For the sake of an additional comparison, The Timex M79 Automatic will run you $40 – $50 more. Really love what Timex has been up to these last few years. But… the Glycine is a much better watch.
Big thanks to Tom H. for the tip.
We owe you a hot dog/soda combo Mr. Tom.
