Traditional Swiss watch maker GLYCINE unveils its latest timepiece AIRMAN SEVEN, an exceptional automatic wristwatch designed for frequent travellers. This new model has its origins back in the early 1990s when the traditional Biel-based establishment brought out its then revolutionary Airman 7 with three dials displaying the time simultaneously and made a big entrance on the wristwatch market.
In introducing the impressive timepiece, boasting no less than three automatic movements, GLYCINE had not only redesigned the arrangement of several time zones but had confidently ushered in the age of large watches worn on the wrist.
The Glycine watchmakers have now succeeded in building a watch for pilots and frequent travellers which again has a simultaneous display of three time zones. No longer is the Glycine creation based on three separate automatic movements, however, but for the first time on just one single movement which controls the three time zones simultaneously by means of an ingenious complication.
The advantage over conventional GMT watches is obvious: the face is divided into one main dial with the main time zone (12-hour clock) and two smaller integrated dials with a 24-hour time zone each. The human eye can take in the three time zones at one glance and the display is much easier for pilots and frequent travellers to read. The beautifully crafted dial with its quality finish is inspired by the sleek structure of the turbojet engine and comes in dark blue and anthracite.
Attention has also been paid to practicality and Glycine has come up with a really user-friendly feature by having two 24-hour time zones which can be operated directly can be operated directly by simply pressing the main crown at 02h00. (1st GMT zone) or the button at 04h00. (2nd GMT zone).
The AIRMAN SEVEN comes in an elegant, polished stainless steel case with an ample diameter of 46 mm, combining innovation and elegance in their most beautiful form.
