Glycine Airman Base 22 Pilot Watch Reference 3887

It has everything an Airman needs, no more and no less. In appearance and size, it is reminiscent of the first Airman made in 1953, especially the model with a white dial. It remains true to the original right down to the details, for example the lattice structure on the crown. The Airman Base 22 is a watch for purists, for those who prefer the classic Airman.
The Airman Base 22 will be available in three versions: firstly, as a basic 24-hour watch with two time zones, secondly as a GMT version with 3 time zones and red GMT hand and finally as a frequent-flyer GMT version. This “GA version” – named after the initials of the initiator, a former pilot – allows time zone change on the easily legible main hour hand without having to stop the movement. The home time is indicated here by the secondary hour hand.
