Glycine is a Swiss wristwatch manufacturer formed in 1914  in Bienne, Switzerland by Eugène Meylan..

Meylan was an uncompromising watch engineer who strove for perfection and produced extremely precise, small movements for ladies watches. Glycine would combine these fine miniature movements with cases fabricated from gold and platinum with with diamonds. Glycine became a supplier to the wealthy.

In 1931, Glycine developed a self-winding watch, but due to limited capitol, it was never  exploited commercially.

In 1934 Glycine introduced a chronometer line. These passed the exacting tests of the Official Swiss Quality Control. The wwi and the depression took a heavy toll on Glycine as Switzerland was cut off from nearly all its traditional export markets.


In the early 1950s, Glycine introduced the Airman model, a 24 hour watch favored by both commercial and military pilots-- including U.S. Air Force pilots during the Vietnam War.

In 1952 Glycine tintroduced the famous VACUUM chronometers, which were known for their incredible resistance to water and shocks.

In 1953, the AIRMAN line was presented to the world market and immediately received an enthusiastic welcome. Now, in addition to regular local time, world time was available at a glance.

The steadily growing class of jet-setters and frequent travelers readily took to the convenience of having two time zones on their wrist.
