With the sixth generation of the Combat series, Glycine introduces both a new automatic watch and a manual wind watch to the market. The sober, traditional design gives the sixth generation of the Combat series a touch of military style from the 1940s and 1950s. As with all Glycine watches, it is easy to read the time, particularly thanks to Superluminova on the hands and index or numbers – a trademark of the Combat watches.
Case diameter is 43mm. As simple and functional as Katherina Brechbühler has designed the automatic and the manual wind models, it is still the details that give the Combat 6 its special touch: for example the see-through back or the orange coloured 24 on the index version. Both the dial and mineral glass are domed. The latter is domed both on the inside and outside – a detail that has made it possible to design the case very ergonomically.
