Hi, I am Emre Kiris and I collect vintage Glycine watches. My aim by building this website is to share the findings and learning journey. Vintage watches are an excellent resource for those who appreciate fine craftsmanship. Read through my journey 'Introduction', click pictures to navigate through pages.
Glycine Watch Company's history is presented in this page from its creation by Eugene Meylan in 1914 until today. Browse through the first 100 years of the company, the Glycine logo and evolution, manufacture, owners and company milestones.
Find original documents and patent registers in this page. Glycine has patented 9 inventions from 1917 to 1973. Browse through the early automatic watch patent to 24 hour GMT bezel inventions along with baguette shape movements and jump hour watch patents.
This page will walk you through the manufacture movements of Glycine watches. You will find also your vintage Glycine Airman manufacture year according to its serial number. Serial numbers are incorporated with Glycine Heritage department.
Glycine watch models from 1914 to 2010. Browse through the Glycine watches and see the evolution of timepieces from Eugene Meylan Automatic to Glycine Airman, Combat, Altus, Incursore, Lagunare and many more models.
The flagship model of Glycine Watches, Airman, deserves its own page. I have listed everything related to Glycine Airman watches in this page, from its invention to tribute models, from the famous hacking mechanism to its restoration and service needs.
Glycine, being one of the early automatic watch inventor, I have created a page dedicated to all early automatic wrist-watches from 1922 to 1933. Back then watches were engineered and they really stretched it with all possible winding mechanisms. It's a truly curious decade for the collector starting with Harwood, Autorist, Glycine to Rolls and than Frey, Mars, Driva, Wyler, Bulova, Rolex, Autorem to Pierce.
This sale page is created to have a reliable transaction source for fans,friends and collectors. You will find some well preserved vintage Glycine Airman watches for sale, also some other brands, always serviced and well kept rare timepieces.
Horological Source is with no particular focus but anything and everything from here and there... Not just vintage Glycine watches but also interesting facts from the world of horlogerie. Like who patented the 24h GMT bezel? Was it Rolex or Glycine, or someone else? Who produced whose movements? Dead beat seconds watches, some Rolex and Doxa stuff, Angelus serial numbers and years of manufacture chart and much more...
