Why We Love it

Allow us to drop some horological lore on you:

For many years, Glycine was a name well under the radar, a sterling company on which few enthusiasts and collectors set their sites. But in recent years, the brand has returned to its roots, reproducing the classic and groundbreaking design that they were once known for almost exclusively, the Airman. 

However, that’s not where the Glycine story ends. The company provides tremendous value amongst its other collections, chief among which is the Incursore, a time-only or time-and-date model available in both hand-wound and automatic versions.

The particular Incursore we have here dates to the 2010s. Housed in a bold 44mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and a polished bezel, it features a luminous, matte black dial with quadrant Arabic and baton indices, a matching handset, and a date window at 4:30. Powered by an automatic Swiss ETA 2824-2 movement, it comes paired to a signed, brown alligator-pattern leather strap with a signed, stainless steel pin buckle.

In good condition and featuring its factory goodies, this Glycine is perfect for someone looking for a highly legible, larger everyday watch and a super-accessible price point.

Brand Story

+
Glycine was established in 1914 by Eugene Meylan, an “uncompromising watch engineer.” With a keen understanding of both the technical and marketing aspects of the watch industry, Meylan specialized in miniaturized movements for ladies’ watches.
While this might be deemed an odd focus today, back in 1914 Meylan could not have made a better one. Wristwatches for men were still regarded as something of a novelty — although World War I would soon change that — while sales in ladies’ watches were booming. Moreover, rather than being viewed as mere accessories, ladies’ watches were a perfect way for a watchmaker to display his skill, due to the expertise required to make them. Soon Glycine’s reputation was based on the beauty and technical precision of these miniature machines. Although Glycine started small, the brand was poised to do great things.
The 1950s saw steady advancements, including the creation of perhaps Glycine’s most famous watch, pre-Airman: the Vacuum. The name came from the vacuum pump in which each Vacuum watch was placed, to be sealed. Elegant and beautifully crafted, inside and out, they were the flagship of Glycine’s collection.
Then came the Airman, which changed the face of watchmaking forever — quite literally, as it happens, due to its groundbreaking 24-hour dial. The success of the Airman ushered in a new era for Glycine, in which the brand released sporty watches to meet the changing needs of the post-war “jet set.” Today, the brand continues to manufacture both the famed Airman and five other collections under the direction and ownership of the Invicta company.
