Almost every watch enthusiast has his or her own favorite brand. A brand that appeals to many enthusiasts is Glycine. This originally Swiss watch brand has a wonderful history and produces fantastic watches. This brand appeals to you especially if you like history and top quality. In this blog we write about this nice Swiss brand and we go deeper into the history of Glycine and we discuss a few Glycine watches.

When it comes to watches, you will find real quality in Switzerland. The country is home to several brands that produce watches with a Swiss heart, or a Swiss made timepiece. Think of brands such as Omega, Oris, Breitling and Rolex. A Swiss-made timepiece provides a solid and very reliable basis for every watch.

A special Swiss brand in this area is the Glycine brand. Glycine has been producing quality watches for more than a century and has thus established its name within the watch industry. Glycine is a brand with a history and that is something that many watch enthusiasts will appreciate. The brand was founded in 1914 by Eugene Meylan. Meylan was very ambitious and went for nothing but pure perfection, both in terms of design and technology. In addition to the fact that Glycine has always managed to achieve excellent quality over the years, the brand also manages to remain affordable. With the extremely good price/quality ratio that the brand aims for, Glycine knows how to appeal to a wide audience.

Glycine started producing their first automatic timepieces and chronometers after World War II. This was followed by the most famous and special model of Glycine, the 'Airman'. This model still plays a decisive role in the Glycine collection to this day and still manages to attract the attention of every enthusiast. With a Glycine watch you choose a traditional and stylish design, in combination with the modern technology of today. In addition, the brand stands for durability, reliability and a perfect finish. The brand offers watches with a more classic look, but also offers traditional sporty designs.

The Glycine collection is divided into different series. In this article we would like to put 2 specific models of Glycine in the spotlight for you. We start with the Glycine Airman DC 4 Vintage GL0072 Purist watch. This watch has a robust and tough look. The strap is made of nato. The dial is also finished in black with lighter colored accents.
