With the landscape of watches getting crowded with the ever-growing competition, many strong players dominate the market to overshadow brands like Glycine. Nevertheless, Glycine continues to produce a wide array of compelling watches that hold their own. Established back in 1914, Glycine was founded by Eugène Meylan in Bienne, Switzerland, a place where countless prestigious watchmakers call home. Meylan was an accomplished watch engineer who strove for perfection and nothing less. Through his strong will and determination, he brought Glycine to greater heights with the successful production of extremely precise and fine miniature movements that were encased in precious gold and platinum cases.
Meylan’s core beliefs and strong determination for perfection are embodied in Glycine watches even until this day. Perhaps Glycine is most distinguished for their historic Airman and Combat Sub collections, carrying great horological significance that influenced many prominent watches today. Alongside these impressive watches, Glycine also offers another range of oversized watches that packs a punch with its timeless design that captures the classic look of military watches from the 1930s. Named after the word ‘intruder’ in Italian, the Incursore speaks for its substantial case and tough appearance, giving it a commanding personality.

The slim minute, hour and second hand retains emphasis on the iconic hour markers while keeping the dial minimal with a matching black date window resting at the 4 o’clock position. When the lights are out, the Super-LumiNova treated hands and indices emit a bright glow in the dark. On top of that, the dial is protected with a domed sapphire crystal with 3 layers of anti-reflective coating on the underside for extra clarity to this mesmerising dial.
Under the hood, the Glycine Incursore 44 Automatic Black Ref. GL0043 runs on Glycine’s Cal. GL224 Swiss automatic movement customised with Glycine’s decorated rotor. Based on the ETA 2824-2/SW200-1, this 25/26 jewel movement is renowned for its reliability as a ‘workhorse’ movement with a 4Hz beat rate of 28,800 BPH and a power reserve of 38 hours. The movement with Glycine’s custom decorated rotor is visible at the back of the watch through its screw-down mineral crystal display case back which provides protection against accidental water splashes with 100m (330 ft) of water resistance.
