Click watch above…more detail will appear…

The GLYCINE AIRMAN vintage military watch was used in Vietnam; popular amongst military servicemen and pilots everywhere. From the 1950’s to the 1970’s pilots have relied on them 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 example is very clean and original including the black dial and hands along with the uncommon 10 sided case which still has the serial number visible.The lower crown locks the rotating bezel. The automatic winding, true 24hr. AS movement was recently cleaned and fis accurate. This watch retains the original cross-hatched crown and even the correct round bubble date crystal. The hacking seconds on this watch is not functioning and parts are not available to fix ,otherwise, the timekeeping is perfect. Due to the desirability of the GLYCINE AIRMAN, there are FAKES out there-we know the difference. Many buyers are getting scammed-be careful-especially on eBay.
