I just got this one in. It's my second Glycine Airman. I sold my first one and was lured back to these great watches.
The one below came from the estate of a career military dental surgeon. The watch serial number dates it to 1964. The original purchase by the doctor was March 23, 1965 (my 4th birthday oddly enough)
It was purchased at a huge discount from the Army and Airforce Exchange Services. These watches retailed for about $120 back then.
It's a 24 hour dial.
The watch comes with the original West German made Fixo-Flex bracelet.
The movement is a 25J Automatic based on the AS 1700.
A couple things unique to the Airman is the rotating locking bezel which is used for dual time zone time keeping. (Notice the extension off the back of the Hour hand, which points to the 2nd time zone.)
The second unique feature is the hacking feature. When the crown is pulled out to the setting position, a tiny wire pops out of a hole at the 12 O'clock position which stops the second hand at the 12 o'clock position.
The only info I could find out about the doctor so far is that he died July 9th, 2015 at age 85.
He took great care of the watch which appears to be worn very little.
I'm excited to be the second owner of this beautiful timepiece and plan on taking very good care of it.
