Glycine Airman No 1 "Purist" on a BluShark NATO
One shot from over the weekend in back of a cab and one from today.
The good: like the vintage look, potential strap monster w/ 20mm lugs, better than expected power reserve, bidirectional bezel, I enjoy the 24 hour timekeeping of the Purist model
The bad: Feels cheap, not worth the MSRP or the price paid here on MD, IMO. The strap was junk. Loud rotor. When hand winding there is little to no resistance.
Very mixed feelings on this one. The Glycine Combat 6 watches I own both punch way above their weight and feel quality at the price point, and this one is quite the opposite. I've long wanted an Airman but the lug to lug on all their other models is beyond anything I like wearing. This may be a case of "never meet your heroes."
