Description

Introducing the Glycine Airman Vintage NOON Degrade Green Ref. GL0476, a nod to the iconic aviation watches of the 1950s. Crafted with precision and passion, this timepiece captures the essence of a golden era when air travel was synonymous with luxury and adventure.

Glycine Airman Vintage NOON Degrade Green Ref. GL0476

Founded in 1914 by Eugène Meylan, Glycine has been a stalwart in Swiss watchmaking. Meylan's commitment to perfection laid the foundation for Glycine's enduring philosophy of offering exceptional value at reasonable prices. The brand's emphasis on reliability has made Glycine a respected name in the industry.

The 1950s, known as the Golden Age of Flying, witnessed the rise of aviation-inspired timepieces. Glycine, a pioneer, introduced the Airman in 1953, the first watch with a 24-hour rotating bezel. This innovation was born from a conversation between Glycine's Samuel Glur and a pilot, highlighting the practical need for tracking multiple time zones.

24-hr “purist” time reading format

The Airman Vintage NOON Degrade Green pays homage to its historic predecessor, featuring a captivating smokey green dial. Vintage triangular markers, period-correct hands with SuperLuminova lume, and the original red date with a magnifying cyclops evoke the charm of the 1950s. The watch maintains its 'Purist' variation, with the hour hand sweeping once per day on the 24-hour track.

Crafted from 316L stainless steel, the 40mm case offers a nostalgic yet distinctive vintage aesthetic. The slender lugs ensure comfort on all wrist sizes, reminiscent of Glycine's 1950s tool watches. Hand-finished in Switzerland, the watch showcases exquisite satin brushing and high-polished sides.

Bezel locking system done by the crown at 4

The hallmark 24-hour bezel, manipulated through the thumbscrew crown, stays true to the 1950s design. The watch features a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, retaining the OG red-colored date. Supplied with a 22mm black NATO strap, the overall vintage style is impeccably complemented.

The highlight of the Airman is its smokey degrading green dial, adhering faithfully to the 1950s design. The double 24-hour markings on the dial and bezel allow tracking two time zones without the need for a new GMT hand. The sword handset, filled with vintage SuperLuminova, ensures superb glow-in-the-dark visibility.

C1 SuperLuminova

Powering the Airman Vintage NOON is Glycine's Cal. GL293 Swiss automatic movement, based on the reliable ETA 2893-2/SW330. With a 4Hz beat rate and a 42-hour power reserve, this movement upholds the watch's functionality.

In essence, the Glycine Airman Vintage NOON Degrade Green Ref. GL0476 seamlessly blends history with modernity. Whether you're a pilot navigating the skies or an enthusiast bringing a piece of aviation history to the office, this timepiece stands as a testament to timeless design and exceptional value.
