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 W.W.I 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 introduced 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.

CONTRARY TO STATEMENTS ON VARIOUS WATCH FORUMS REGARDING THE GLYCINE WATCH COMPANY:

A) NOT ALL STEEL OR CHROME CASES WERE SIGNED "GYCINE.

B) MOST VINTAGE GLYCINE WATCHES DO NOT HAVE SIGNED CROWNS

C) DURING THE PERIOD OF 1938 THROUGH 1947, SOME GLYCINE WATCHES UTILIZED UNSIGNED MOVEMENTS INCLUDING THE A 214, 215, AND THE AS 1130. SOME OF THESE HAD A GLYCINE SIGNED RATCHET / WINDNG WHEELS SOME DID NOT.

D) ALL GLYCINE WATCHES WERE PRODUCED WITH SIGNED DIALS

TWO GLYCINE 72 MOVEMENTS
WERE REQUIRED TO RESTORE
ONE

IMG_1445.JPG (193343 bytes)

WE REQUIRED A CENTER WHEEL DUE TO THE FACT
A GLYCINE WE PURCHASED OFF EBAY SOLD AS "RUNNING STRONG"
HAD THE CENTER WHEEL UPPER PIVET MISSING SO NO SECOND HAND
AND
ANOTHER WATCH INVESTED IN TO GET A COMPLETE MOVEMENT
WAS ALSO SOLD AS RUNNING PERFECT AND KEEPING TIME
BUT ARRIVED WITH BROKEN MAIN AND WARPED BARREL

AND DAMAGED ESCAPE WHEEL

PARTS WATCH

IMG_1469.JPG (110831 bytes)

MAIN SPRING BRIDGE REMOVED

 IMG_1475.JPG (148501 bytes)

THE
MAINSPRING BARREL IS
REMOVED AND CLEANED

MAIN SPRING BARREL

IMG_1478.JPG (83467 bytes)

HERE THE NEXT BRIDGE IS REMOVED


IMG_1475.JPG (148501 bytes)


SO THE CENTER WHEEL
AND
ESCAPE WHEEL CAN BE REMOVED

ABOVE IS A DEMO OF THE OILD CAPS BEING REMOVED TO
OIL THE BOTTOM ESCAPE WHEEL PIVOT
THEREIS ANOTHER ON THE TOP.
A LACK OF OIL CAUSE THE ESCAPE WHEEL PIVOT TO WEAR

***********************************

I ALLWAYS READ HOW WATCHES ARE "SERVICED" AND "OILED"

AND YET
THE WATCH IS GOING FOR
50 TO 150
BUCKS

HOW CAN SOMEONE DO THIS?
IT TAKES HOURS TO PROPERLY
SERVICE A WATCH

AND
EVEN MORE

TO OVERHAUL IT!

AND
EVEN MORE TO
RESTORE IT

 

IMG_1482.JPG (110907 bytes)

HERE IS A WELL-CAP REMOVED


IMG_1488.JPG (116764 bytes)

HERE ARE TWO MORE ON TOP - UNDER THE DIAL
WE WILL DO THIS ON THE MOVEMENT
WE ARE REBUILDING WITH PARTS FROM THIS GLYCINE 72

THAT MOVEMENT WILL BE CLEANED IN A
4 JAR CLEANING SYSTEM
PARTS OILED
THEN
ASSEMBLED
THEN
WE WILL DO THE OUTER OILING LIKE ABOVE

IMG_1489.JPG (144349 bytes)

HERE THE SCRTEWS REMOVED ALLOWING OILING

IMG_1483.JPG (135335 bytes)

YOU CAN SEE WHERE IT FITS
THE CAP HOLD THE PIVOT OIL
THE ESCAPE WHEEL RECEIVES
MORE FORCE WHILE CENTER WHEELS
RECEIVE LESS. SO STANARD JEWELS
ARE OILED W/O REMOVING ANYTHING.
[DIAL MUST BE REMOVED]

THE BALANCE WHEEL HAS A BRASS "HOUR GLASS" SHOCK ABSORBER ON TOP AND BOTTOM

IMG_1485.JPG (130173 bytes)

THERE IS A PIC OF OPENING THE SHOCK ABSOBER
THEN THE RED JEWEL TOP IS LIFTED
AND OIL APPLIED. BOTH SIDES

NOTE, THERE IS MUCH MORE REQUIRED
TO LUBRICATE AND OIL A MOVEMENT
I AM ONLY SHOWING A FEW OF THE TYPES

IMG_1486.JPG (140512 bytes)

TO REMOVE THE CENTER WHEEL,
THE CANON PINION MUST
BE REMOVED WITH A TOOL
[IN THE PIC HERE I AM USING
SCREW DRIVER TO POINT OUT
THE PINION NOT REMOVE IT]

IMG_1477.JPG (88786 bytes)

MWE USED THE HOUR WHEEL
AND
THE MINUTE WHEEL
AND THE
CANON PINION
FROM THIS MOVEMENT
FOR THE ONE WE RESTORED

WE JUST WOULD RATHER USE THE
HOUR & MINUTE WHEEL
ALONG WITH THE CANON PINION
WHEN CHANGING THE CANON PINION
--WHEN AVAILABLE--

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND. So, WHEN YOU VIEW VINTAGE AND CLASSIC WATCHES OFFERED BY OTHER VENDORS/DEALERS, the question is: WAS THE WATCH SERVICED?
