Equipped with a ETA 7754 self-winding chronograph movement, the AIRMAN Chrono 08 displays three time zones in addition to its integrated chronograph. The 24-hour rotating inner bezel is a novelty for Glycine. It is separated into a lower white part for the day and an upper black part for the night. Thanks to the protection provided by the crystal, it was possible to use luminous material, like on the dial. This makes the third time zone luminescent, too. The rotating bezel can be adjusted with the screw down crown at 8 o’clock.
The trapezoidal date display and hands are based on the first Airman watches from the 50’s by Glycine. Few red colour elements highlight certain functions; for example, the hands for the second and third time zones, the corresponding 24-hour scale on the dial, as well as the tip of the stop second. The minute counter is found at 12 o’clock and the hour counter at 6 o’clock. The AIRMAN Chrono 08 is also available as a strictly 24-hour watch with two time zones. Limited edition of 500 pieces.
