Established back in 1914, Glycine was founded by Eugène Meylan in Bienne, Switzerland, a place where countless prestigious watchmakers call home. Glycine is most distinguished for their historic Glycine Airman in 1953. The birth of this historic timepiece resulted from a conversation that sparked between one of Glycine’s employees, Samuel Glur, and a pilot during one of his flights. The pilot expressed his interest in a watch that had a 24-hour bezel feature, a function much needed by pilots to track multiple time zones. A watch that did not currently exist on the market. Having said that, Glycine welcomes back their new edition based on their original and famous watch from the 50s.
