Glycine has a reputation when it comes to larger watches. It’s a trait that has brought the brand many years of success, even before large watches were the trend. When looking at some of their pieces like the Airman 7, F-104 and KMU 48, you are seeing some of the biggest Glycine has to offer. In the late 90’s, Glycine introduced a 44mm manually wound timepiece (which was larger for back then) called Incursore, which paved the way for Glycine’s recognition with big timepieces. The Incursore now comes in either 44mm or 46mm. For our post today, we are introducing one of their latest, the Glycine Incursore 46mm Automatic Sap 3874.11-LBN7.
This new introduction of Incursore is one of only variations to actually have a white dial, which is surprising since they look so awesome. This model in particular is incredibly legible. With black super luminova for the numerals/indexes, and matte black hands, it’s hard not to know the time. It’s simplistic design and larger size makes for a nice and easy read, while still looking great on the wrist.
The case design is wide and long, but still fairly thin. It’s 11mm thickness is a nice attribute on such a beefy piece. The curvature to the case is nice and helps the piece sit on the wrist well. I do like the fact that the case is a completely brushed finish, as it will not show scratches as much as a high polish. The screw down crown’s design is easy to grab and function. The front crystal is sapphire, while the screw down case back is mineral.
The movement is an ETA 2824-2 with the date window at 4 o’clock. The 2824 has a rate of 28,800 bph, 25 jewels and a 38 hr power reserve. The movement’s nickle plated rotor is decorated in Geneva striping and has the Glycine logo. Simple, but nicely done.
The retail on the Glycine Incursore 46mm 200M Automatic Sap 3874.11-LBN7 is $1,675. Another great value from Glycine and well worth the money. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996. We’re happy to help.
