    I have an Airman 18 Purist incoming, black on black. I researched the models available from Watchgooroo and decided on the 18, just too good a deal to pass up. I'm hoping 39mm will be the right choice on my 7.25" wrist. Will post pictures when it arrives.

    I hope someone buys it so I don't have to keep looking at it.

    Just ordered mine today. Has the same dial as yours but has a different blue leather strap. Have been waiting forever to get one of these.

    Very nice! I really like the Airman, and the more subtley-sized one is very cool indeed. Congrats!

    Hi guys, I had been contemplating an Airman 18 myself for more than 2 years in the past. Ended up buying the Sinn 856 UTC. Regarding the acquisition of Glycine by Invicta, does anyone think the older pre-invicta generation Airman watches will appreciate in value over time? In that will there be appreciation driven by collectors for preference of the old style pieces at all?

    not sure about that, but i think that the deals on some in the US now will hold that value. it seems that the real collector base for Glycine may not really be that big. the original Airman models seem to have a pretty steady following, and are able to maintain their value.

    I think they might. Especially if they discontinue ones like the 1953, No.1, the 18 and perhaps a few others. Of course they could take a strategy of producing more "popular" designs, and then issue limited releases from time to time, of the more faithful early designs. But being limited production they might not dilute the values of older production releases along the same lines.

    The other factor might be the availability of ETA movements. If they switch for what ever reason down the road to let's say Sellita, the older ETA powered releases might appreciate substantially. I don't think there's any doubt though that at current prices they are all a steal, and because of brand heritage and current (for now) execution, they will be worth more than paid for at present.
