    The Airman 08 has always been one of my favorite Glycine watches. Very difficult to find though. The SST 12 is another stunning Airman, but unfortunately that one is also out of production. Really, the current Airman lineup is not my liking.

    Here's my hand-built piece with NOS Gallet dial (Valjoux 7730 motor).

    Yes, this is so called rattrapante or split-second chronograph. I have some rattrapante stopwatches and it is amazing to watch how it works.

    One of the hands, the so-called “rattrapante” hand, sits either directly on top of or underneath the main chronograph hand. The rattrapante hand is started and returned to zero simultaneously with the main chronograph hand. A special push-piece and an additional mechanism make it possible for the rattrapante hand to be repeatedly stopped (so that split times can be read) and then instantly brought into renewed synchrony with the main chronograph hand by flying back to catch up with it. (“Rattrapanter” is French for “to catch again” or “to take again.”) All this occurs without affecting the motion of the main chronograph hand.

    Re: 24 Hour Chronographs

    I would like to add Aviation 24h chronographs, made by Ollech & Wajs. Produced from Breitling stock details after Breitling went bankruptcy in 1979.

    Two models exists -
    34017 : 3 register with Valjoux 7736
    34017-33 : 2 register with Valjoux 7733

    Of course there are several modifications - stainless steel, solid 18 karat gold etc. After Ollech & Wajs ceased mr. Wajs is still offering them through website chronotime.ch Yesterday I got from mr. Wajs his latest pricelist, which still includes some last 24h models.

    And I'm especially happy to say, that this 2-register Aviation on the right picture is now in post on the way to me. (Not from mr. Wajs)

    Re: 24 Hour Chronographs

    I would like to add some pictures of my 24h chrohographs.

    My favourite is Franck Muller Endurance. This is the older Endurance generation model I like more. You can have it green, black, blue, yellow, orange ... I don't know what else.

    Most famous 24h chronograph is Breitling Cosmonaute, no doubt. The are zillion of models from many generations. I have two, a black one and a white one. These watches are good investment, very easy to sell, but not so suitable for everyday wearing. The main problem is legibility. That's why I'm very happy to get Aviation chronograph with only 2 subdials. That makes legibility much better. Especially you can better see the daily hours 8-16.

    Very good watches to wear, 60s style military chronographs. Here again black (Gallet) and white (Guinand). I know that nowadays gold watches are not so fashionable for younger generations. Heh, I'm an old retired man and gold is absolutely ok for me.

    Re: 24 Hour Chronographs

    It is not so tragic. I looked at my papers.
    Guinand was 500 € in 2013, from an Italian seller.
    Gallet was 630 € in 2015, from a Japanese seller.

    Yes, indeed, Breitling Cosmonaut in a good shape can not be below 2000 €. But belive me, Franck Muller I got for 1600 € in 2016.
