Glycine’s 24-hour Airman is an icon of the watch community. Originally designed for pilots, it’s found a wider audience since its release in the 1950s, not only for its unique design—the dial is numbered 1 through 24, with the 12th numeral at the 6 o’clock position—but also for its ability to display second and third time zones. Plus, the dial has that simple aesthetic that has long proven popular among enthusiasts. Nearly identical to the Old Airman, as the original is called, the Airman Base 22 was released in 2010.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice from the following: GL0211 | GMT, GL0212 | "Purist", GL0213 | GMT, GL0214 | "Purist", GL0215 | GMT, and GL0216 | "Purist".
Fitted with Sellita SW330-1 Swiss automatic movement—which offers a 42-hour power reserve—all six models feature a bidirectional rotating bezel. Like the dial, the bezel is labeled with Arabic numerals in increments of 2, up to 24, and it locks in place with a click of the crown at 4 o’clock, allowing you to set a another time zone. The dial is equipped with SuperLuminova, both on the hands and hour markers, and it provides a date display at 3 o’clock. The stainless steel case plays host to a domed sapphire crystal, while a nylon strap ties the Airman Base 22 together.
