The first thing that comes to mind at the mention of this renowned Swiss watchmaker is its famed Airman line debuted in 1953. Known as one of the pioneers of watchmaking for pilots and frequent travellers, Glycine has crafted robust aviation timepieces, from infallible watches for dangerous space voyages to unique collectors’ items. Because of its reliability and accuracy, the Airman was worn by many United States Air Force pilots during the Vietnam War and even graced the wrist of astronaut Pete Conrad during the Gemini 5 spaceflight. And now, be prepared to be awed as Glycine unveils its newest Airman masterpiece, the Combat SUB 42 Airman 44 Brown GMT Bronze Ref. GL0166.

Powered by a GL293 Swiss automatic movement operating at 28,800 bph which closely resembles an ETA 2893-2 or SW330 calibre, the Airman 44 Brown is built with 25 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve. This timepiece also has a height of 12.2mm and a lug to lug length of 51mm. The highlight of this watch is its 44mm bronze case which lavishes it with a grand vintage look. As the marine grade bronze material used undergoes natural oxidisation, this classic pilot case develops a beautiful patina over time, individualising each timepiece.

A sleek throwback to Glycine’s 50s design, this timepiece features the signature Airman 24-hour bezel design controlled by a special spacer system on its hatched crown located at 4 o'clock. Only by unlocking this system can the friction bezel be adjusted bi-directionally. Additionally, this watch has another thumbscrew crown at 3 o’clock which controls its time, date and GMT settings.
To complete its vintage look, the Airman 44 Brown comes on a 22mm dark brown calf leather strap with a matching signed Glycine bronze buckle. The seamless colour contrast of this watch, with hues of dark brown and bronze gold all the way down to its buckle and strap, is the key to its timeless design.
