Glycine Galore

Well not really, but of late I seem to see lots of the brand. Today for example, I was offered a choice between these two model. Both belongs to the Combat Collection from Glycine. The first is the Combat 6 manual and the second is the Combat 6 automatic. Both Combat 6 watches comes with the Arabic numeral hour markers and the Index hour markers. That makes it 4 watches. This on top of the earlier Incursore Black Jack Small Second. 

Both Combat 6 share some of the same basic specification:

Basic Specifications:

Case: stainless steel, 43 mm diameter, 22 mm lug width
Crystal: dome mineral top and flat mineral back
Water resistant: 5 ATM

The Combat 6 manual, reference 3894

Functions: hours, minutes and seconds
Case: 9.7 mm thick
Movement: hand wind ETA 2801-2

The Combat 6 automatic, reference 3890

Functions: hours, minutes, seconds and date
Case: 10.8 mm thick
Movement: automatic ETA 2824-2

I like the Combat 6 automatic because I like that it is automatic. I even like the fact that the date window is placed nearer to the centre, in-line with the 24-hour markers (on the model with the Index hour markers). Don't like the date on the version with the Arabic numeral hour marker (not balance).

As such, if I were get the watch, it would be the Combat 6 manual, the one with the Arabic numerals.
