GLYCINE WATCH STRAPSGlycine Straps

 

History of Glycine watches


Glycine has been producing watches at its factory in Bienne, Switzerland, since 1914. Founder Eugène Meylan was a talented watch engineer who constantly strived for perfection, using his technical knowledge and understanding of the watch market to appeal to a wealthy and discerning clientele.


In the early days of his company, Eugène worked on extremely precise, small movements for ladies watches – fine miniature movements clad in gold and platinum cases. Around 1931, Eugène presented his first self-winding watch and, a few years later, the first Glycine chronometers were launched. These chronometers passed the tests of the Official Swiss Quality Control and represented Eugène’s passion for precision.


One of the most famous Glycine watches is the Airman - first launched to the world market in 1953 to an enthusiastic welcome. The Glycine Airman made world time available at a glance, immediately appealing to the growing numbers of frequent travelers that saw the value in a watch that displayed two time zones. Designed in close cooperation with pilots of civil and military aviation, the Airman made Glycine a pioneer in the field, and the company is still well known for its production of pilots watches. The Airman has never been absent from the Glycine range, and to this day it is the spearhead of the brand.


In the 90s Glycine began to produce mechanical watches with larger diameters, appealing to the market’s growing desire for oversized watches. The new larger designs gave Glycine watches a new reputation for innovation and pushing the boundaries, while staying true to Eugène Meylan’s desire for perfection.
