GLYCINE ~60's AIRMAN~
GLYCINE ~60's AIRMAN~
It is an introduction of Glycine "Airman" of the 1960s .
Glycine was born in Vienne, Switzerland in 1914 .
Since its founding, it is a manufacturer that continues to make original watches under consistent management in its own workshop.
Among them, the model that can be said to be particularly representative is the "Airman" equipped with a 24- hour hand.
Although it was not officially adopted by the US military, it has gained a lot of support from pilots during the Vietnam War due to its high functionality, operability and reliability, and has a track record of actual use.
In a normal watch, the hour hand makes one revolution every 12 hours, but the "Airman" minute hand makes one revolution every 24 hours.
This is a feature seen in military pilot's watches of the time, and it is said that it became such a notation to make it easier for pilots who saw the watch to intuitively grasp the time.
The rotating bezel is also unique and can be rotated by loosening the crown (screw) at the 4 o'clock position.
This crown is also a characteristic of a military watch.
The overall condition is good, the edges of the case are well preserved, and the engraving on the back cover is clearly readable.
The overall atmosphere of the matte black dial and arrow hands has changed over time, making it simple and cool.
The NATO band is attached in the image, but it goes well with a leather belt if you like, and it can be used in various situations such as casual and semi-formal occasions.
Considering the small number of pieces produced, the time of production and the actual usage conditions, it is rare to find an individual in such good condition, making it a truly collectible piece .
