Glycine Airman MLV, Ref. 3830

Mauna Loa Volcano (MLV): The world’s largest active volcano, which towers more than 4,000 metres above sea level on the Hawaiian island, is the source of the name for this extra special timepiece in the Glycine collection: the fluorescent-dial Airman MLV. Introduced in 2004, this watch represents an extravagant extension to the traditional Airman Series.

With a diameter of 42 millimetres, the Airman MLV belongs among the smaller watches in the Airman family. The watch revives elements of the 50s and its date display is done in red. The Airman MLV runs on an ETA 2893 movement, has two sapphire glasses and is waterproof to 200 metres. The Airman MLV was produced in a limited edition of 500 watches.
