Glycine Airman 17 Sphair Watch Review


The Glycine Airman 17 Sphair debuted at Basel 2013. While it might be last year’s release, it certainly is not a model for the past. The Glycine Airman is a great looking model with a 24-hour dial, 24-hour rubber bezel and GMT hand.

Here are the full specs and the price:

Material stainless steel / rubber

Diameter:  46mm without crown

Height: 10.75 mm with see-through back

Finish:   satin/polished

Waterproof:  20 atm

Back:      screwed see-through sapphire glass

Glass:    sapphire AR

Dial:       black with SL

Hands:  nickel with SL

Crown:  screw-down

Cal. No GL 293 Swiss Automatic movement

24mm Black calf leather

Retail Price $2,995 USD


The case and packaging is pretty simple, a hard black cardboard box for the outer packaging and the actual presentation box isn’t that much different. The box opens up to reveal a white or cream-colored plastic interior with the Gycine logos and the pillow on which the watch rests. For the most part, packaging from Glycine seems to differ between market and model, from the more basic like this example to solid wood boxes for some others. A well made presentation box is always a nice bonus, but not necessary, as they end up in the closet 5 minutes after you receive the watch anyways.

  1. This does look very enticing. Shame it’s so expensive (way out of my means), I’d love to have this design/look on my wrist.

  2. The watch truly looks like a classic luxurious watch… Would like to know if the ever run a sale on it? If you know, please let us know. Thanks, Natalie

  3. The overall look of this piece is quite stunning. Excellent Price for the quality you get. You can also buy a preowned for about $1600
