Just in time to mark the company’s 100th anniversary, the traditional watchmaker Glycine has launched a new pilot watch, the Airman AIRFIGHTER.
No watch connoisseur will fail to see the unmistakable DNA of the Airman which forms the basis for the new Airman AIRFIGHTER’s fascinating case. The Airman AIRFIGHTER is first and foremost a genuine pilot’s watch with three individual time zones. The second time zone is located elegantly on the inner bezel and can be easily read thanks to a dynamic GMT hand with white triangular tip in the 24-hour zone. The hand can be operated directly and easily by turning the central crown. The third time zone is operated using the 24-hour rotating bezel, typical of the Airman by simply turning the bezel after releasing the lower locking crown.
The stage for the perfect interplay of the three time zones is a finely crafted and very high-quality dial, perfectly complemented by the beautiful hands. Anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire glass on both sides protects the watch from external influences and guarantees maximum readability of the three time zones.
The watch is enclosed in a striking and carefully worked 46mm case. It is fitted with a chronograph mechanism with the revolutionary sliding actuator located on the left side of the case. This is easily achieved using the right thumb.
The Airman AIRFIGHTER is driven by a high-quality decorated movement of the automatic calibre GL754. A beautifully skeletonised aircraft on the oscillating weight of the movement will only make the hearts of watch enthusiasts beat faster and adds just that extra touch of elegance.
This masterpiece is available in three versions with a blue, red or carbon-black dial, each with matching leather straps.
