Glycine Airman NOS Unused 1960’s


Now this is an amazing find. This 36mm. NOS 1960’s GLYCINE AIRMAN has never been on a wrist and comes complete as bought, preserved amazingly all these years. The box, open papers, band, tag-all complete as new. I’ve not seen another-ever, unused such as this. The case has never been opened or serviced. The hacking seconds works perfectly. The case is like a mirror. The dial and hands are pristine. You may be wondering why a nearly 50 year old watch would essentially be New Old Stock. It’s a sad story. In the 1960’s a woman bought this watch as a present for her fiancé who was a pilot in the Air Force. Before she could give it to him, he was killed in Vietnam. The watch then sat in the proverbial sock drawer for nearly 50 years until the watch was given to her son and was then acquired by us. We have not serviced this watch: it is working fine but we wished to preserve it as the time capsule which it really is. This is a collector’s dream. $4200 DS
