Glycine Airman Base 22 Mystery Watch Review


Glycine has revealed the Airman Base 22 Mystery, the latest addition to the Airman collection of pilot watches.

The distinctive Glycine Airman collection dates back to 1953, when pilots flying between Bangkok and Calcutta explained to a Glycine employee exactly what they needed in a frequent-flyer timepiece. The first Airman was developed and released in the same year, and became a pioneer of Swiss aviator watches.

The new timepiece in the collection is the Base 22 Mystery, a black watch designed for night missions.

The Glycine Airman Base 22 Mystery has a 42 mm stainless steel case with black PVD coating, a black dial with clear luminous elements, and sapphire crystal glass. The GMT version features three time zones and a red GMT hand. It is powered by a rhodanised ETA 2893 movement, and comes with a black NATO strap for comfortable wear. The watch has a mineral crystal case back and offers water resistance to 20 metres.
