Where Did We Find This One?
For me, this watch was an eBay find. As always, my discovery of this gem was followed by an unrelenting stream of questions flung at the seller.
The seller informed me that this watch belonged to her father, a pilot who wore the Glycine during many missions in the 1960s. The watch was a trusty companion she told me, and her father was never without his Glycine while in the cockpit.
The watch was complete, with its original box and bracelet, and even has service paperwork from when the seller decided to restore the watch to its former glory.
Process of Selling This Piece
After paying a fair price for the piece, it arrived in the mail, and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Its condition was impeccable, and the watch was simply one of the coolest pieces I’ve owned, however, it was simply too large to keep.
Knowing this would eventually force me to find a new home for the piece, I was contacted by a buyer in Italy.
The buyer informed me that she’s been looking for this exact model for her husband as a gift. Her husband was a veteran and wore the Glycine SST while on missions in the military. After he completed his service, he was separated from his Glycine Airman, and she felt this watch would be the perfect gift to fill that sentimental void.
