I have a love/hate relationship with bronze watches. I like the idea of owning one, but I only keep watches that hold their own against the others in my collection. This is why I sold my $199 San Martin Bronze Water Ghost. At the same time, I struggle with spending thousands of dollars on a watch like a Tudor Black Bay Bronze that is going to tarnish immediately. When I came across this Glycine Combat Sub Bronze, I thought that it might be the Goldilocks bronze watch that I didn't know that I needed. Inexpensive, but not cheap.
Why did I choose to purchase a San Martin? Bronze! They offer unique materials such as bronze, titanium, and damascus steel that you can't get from Seiko or other brands after which they model some of their designs. How did it look in person? Click to find out!
