The traditional Swiss watch maker GLYCINE is extending its F104 line. With the F104, Glycine pays tribute to the legendary Lockheed F104 aircraft, the leading fighter plane of the 1950s and 1960s.The unmistakable F104 can be identified at first glance thanks to its harmonious yet ergonomic shape and perfectly-balanced dial.
Glycine has recognised the possibilities offered by this timelessly beautiful, unique shape and expanded the F104 family (diameter 48 mm) with the particularly successful smaller version bearing a diameter of 40 mm.
The Glycine F 104 has a flat sapphire crystal as well as a special leather strap in a “pilot look” with two rivets on either side. The glass back, fixed by six screws, allows you to view the fascinating Swiss automatic movement. The polished stainless steel case, which has a rounded shape, looks good on any wrist thanks to the movable lugs. The elegant conical crown – carried over from the original model – adds a touch of nostalgia to this watch, which is waterproof to 3 atm.
With this watch, Glycine will not only make fans of smaller watches happy, but also re-establish itself on the ladies’ watch market in an impressive manner, a mere 100 years after it was first founded. The new F104 (40 mm) will be available in the classic steel version with a black, sand-brown or silver white dial or blue and black mother-of-pearl dial with diamonds. And for those who would like something a little more sumptuous, Glycine has a particularly classy piece of jewellery for you with its diamond-studded black case with mother-of-pearl diamonds.
