    I just added this one. I'm enjoying it so far. It's been on the wrist about a week. No complaints! Great watch.

    Got it 2 weeks ago, here's some photos of wrist and lume shot. Changed put the original leather to a dark brown.

    I like the polished bracelet, with some many polished surfaces on the Glycine 18. I ordered this for around $25 on sale a week or so ago, and got it in the mail last night.

    I have an Airman 17 and an Airman Base 22. I am thinking about adding an Airman 18.

    For those who have an 18, please let me know how the bezel works.

    My Airman 17 rotates with clicks, and my Base 22 is loose and simply turns and rotates without any clicks. I think I prefer the bezel action of the Airman 17 with the clicks. I find it easier to align the hours, although I can see how some might prefer the freely moving bezel rotating without clicks.

    the 18 clicks in addition to the lock at the 4 o'clock position. *i guess that is the crown at 0800 on these watches.

    I never should have joined this forum. The pictures on here are like a form of watch torture. Everything I see I wind up looking up on ebay. It's only a matter of time before I buy something lol.

    Also, very nice Glycine!!

    The bezels on my Airman 17 and Base 22 each operate the same as yours (i.e. the 17's bezel is ratcheted and the Base 22's is not). At first I was concerned that perhaps the Base 22's bezel wasn't working as it should, finding it odd that they didn't both have ratcheted bezels. Though, through a little research I learned that each was indeed operating as it should. Also like you, I prefer the ratcheted design of the 17, enjoying the tactile/audile click & "precision" feel when turning and setting the bezel. However, given the screw-down bezel-locking crown on each, the ratcheted design of the 17 is actually a bit of a redundancy, as the Base 22's bezel works and holds its position just fine without it.

    Would any 18 owners chime in with a measurement? What's the lug to lug? And is the case 39mm or 38mm. It seems like I'm seeing conflicting info out there on this model. Thanks in advance y'all.
