The most important features of Glycine world time watches of the last decades are combined in the pilot watch AIRMAN 17. The new classic has a diameter of 46 mm. Notable about this 17th AIRMAN generation by Glycine is the technically extensive setting crown at four o’clock: with this the ratchet bezel can be blocked, which makes it particularly easy to set the second and third time zones and guarantees that the set position remains unchanged.
The watch combines state-of-the-art technology, materials and beautiful details. For example, in the exquisitely finished rhodanised ETA movement Val Grange A07.171 with blue screws: the large oscillating weight is decorated with the Glycine crown, Geneva stripes in the centre as well as the typical Airman airplane in black.
The ideal position and size of the calendar are emphasized by the generous, trapezoidal date window. For purists there is the AIRMAN 17 as a 24-hour model and a blue degradé dial with day and night display. The case of the AIRMAN 17 , at the same time, also was launched in the popular 38 mm diameter and fitted with the tried and tested Calibre 2893. This smaller watch was brought onto the market as AIRMAN 18.
