Glycine Airman Special Cir.1967

#1 Post by river rat » Sat Jul 28, 2018 9:21 am

Don't think I ever posted this here got this a few years ago think for 600-700 the hacking was not working. Sent it to Nevada watch repair a expert on these. The hack wire was missing he had replacement parts made up for the hacking were most don't work these days due to incompetent watchmakers who screw them up through the years. Kind of cool how the wire pops up through a hole at the 24 to stop the second hand to hack when you pull the crown. Different than other watches. Being retired Navy the 24 hour dial don't bother me.

Kind of a bad photo but you can see the wire up for stopping the second hand to hack.

Fantastic, that checks every box for the features I'd want in a watch. What is the function of the second stem?

Locks the bezel so it don't move. You loosen it and you can turn the bezel ring.

One of my favorites. Here's my 1965 model with the original Fixo-Flex bracelet.
