1960s Glycine Airman


The Glycine Airman vintage military watch was used in Vietnam and was popular among military servicemen and pilots everywhere. From the 1950s to the 1970s, pilots relied on the Airman due to their bold and easy-to-read 24-hour dial. These dials display both 24-hour time and conventional time at the same time. This 1960s Glycine dial is very clean and all original. The lume on the hands was updated many years ago. Notice the early and uncommon red date. The unpolished stainless steel case is in exceptional shape and retains the original turning bezel, along with the original screw-back. The lower crown locks the rotating bezel. The automatic winding, signed Felsa 892 movement was recently (expensively) cleaned. These watches are becoming hard to find in original condition. Many are not aware that Glycine Airman watches have a hacking seconds feature. When the crown is pulled out, a hollow tube shoots up a microscopic wire at 12:00, which stops the second hand when it reaches 12:00. This hacking seconds feature is working perfectly. Please also note that the parts to fix second stop are no longer available as they sold out 2007. Due to the desirability of the Glycine Airman, there are fakes out there and many are getting scammed – be careful, especially on eBay. This truly is a prime and hard-to-find example.
