The Glycine Airman watch was very popular with military pilots during the Vietnam War, and the SST was successor model to the original Airman. This watch features a solid stainless steel case, a 17-jewel automatic movement, and a two-tone black and grey 24-hour dial with an orange inner rotating bezel to indicate a second time zone.The case is in excellent condition, showing signs of occasional wear. The movement runs and keeps excellent time, however the hacking device does not work because the hacking pin is missing this does not affect overall timekeeping or functionality. The vast majority of vintage Glycine Airman watches in existence today are missing their hacking pins. The dial is in excellent original condition.
Overall, a very presentable watch that is ready to wear in style or present as a wonderful gift to a person who appreciates fine timepieces. This watch measures 42mm diameter (without crown). Signed case, movement, and dial. If you have questions about this watch or about my watch and clock repair services, please feel free to contact me.
Furthermore, I do not recommend taking any antique, vintage, or pre-owned watch in water to begin with.
