Traditional Swiss watch brand GLYCINE pays tribute to the legendary DC-4 aircraft by unveiling the AIRMAN "DC-4" wristwatch.
Built by Douglas Aircraft Company, the legendary DC-4 is an American commercial aircraft with four piston engines which began its career as a military transport plane and was later used in civil air transport all over the world after the Second World War. It was also the DC-4 which, in 1953, led Glycine to conceive the legendary AIRMAN, the first pilot's watch with double 24-hour display function.
The inspiration for the legendary AIRMAN therefore came on the fly, so to say. The market launch of the first AIRMAN took place before the year was out. This pioneering Swiss pilot's watch was the genuine article and was extremely popular with the American pilots. The unique AIRMAN DNA has spawned a further 29 generations based on the original.
The pilot's watch is controlled by an automatic rhodanised GL 293 movement (ETA specification). Following in the purist footsteps of the original AIRMAN, it has an exclusive market position as a 24-hour watch with two time zones. If preferred, however, it can also be used as a normal 12-hour watch with the additional feature of a 24-hour GMT display. The beautiful and timeless classic comes, as it did 60 years ago, in a wooden case true to the original with vintage-style warranty certificate. A book about the Airman is also included which tells its story in clear factual detail.
