At the end of last month, Glycine announced 2 new Airman variations that were in the manufacturing process and to be released in mid November. One of which is the new Glycine Airman “Vintage 1953” Limited Edition of only 600 pieces in the world.
This new LE will come in only as a 24 hour counter with 2 timezones. The locking bezel is adjustable to set the secondary timezone and glycine has utilized a modified ETA 2893-1 for the actual time keeping. The pieces will come on a black NATO strap adding to the vintage feel. Retail is going to be $2,995.
The Airman “1953 Vintage” was released as a commemorative piece to honor the very 1st Airman, which was launched in 1953, hence the name. This 60th Anniversary edition will be released before the new year, scheduled to arrive mid-November, and come in a unique wood box, reminiscent of the 1st Airman’s original packaging.
Another new release announced from Glycine is the Glycine Airman Base 22 “Mystery”. The all blacked out variation is going to be available in 2 movement types, a purist version only having 3 hands, and displaying 2 timezones. The other is the GMT version, with 4 hands, one of which is red displaying GMT, and displays 2 timezones. There is a cool black super-luminova on hands and indexes and comes on a black NATO strap also. The retail is estimated around $2300-$2400 retail.
