Biel-based watchmaker Glycine enhances its legendary AIRMAN range of pilot's watches with the refined "DOUBLE TWELVE" , an entry-level model which boasts typical AIRMAN features. The result is a pilot's watch made of stainless steel with excellent clarity of display, a rotating bezel with a second time zone and the hallmark Glycine locking bezel crown at the 4 o'clock setting.
But take a closer look and the revolutionary features of the new "DOUBLE TWELVE" will also become apparent to those really acquainted with the Airman. Like every one of its predecessors, the youngest Airman is a pilot's watch with multiple time zones. It is, however, the first Airman to use the 12-hour display (only) since the launch of the legendary Airman line in 1953.
Producing the watch with a pure 12-hour display for both time zones has allowed Glycine to use the proven and high-precision GL 224 automatic calibre (ETA specification) which is a little less complex and pleasantly reduces the retail price, bringing the watch within the price range of Airman enthusiasts on a slightly lower budget.
The "Double Twelve" Airman comes in stainless steel with carefully crafted dials in blue, black and red. A book about the Airman is also included as a gift with each purchase, fondly and coherently recounting the full Airman story.
