    Haven't seen many of these and want to run it by you guys...

    I jumped on this old Glycine just because it looked so cool and is in nice shape. A google image search and other internet searchy stuff gets nothing quite like it, the closest variant of this age seems to be the vaccuum series from I guess the 70s. I like the blue checkered chapter ring and the spanish day names and shiny chrome hands. It seems to run perfectly with at least an overnight reserve and the other thing is you can't hear it tick or feel the winder at all. Anybody have any info on this baby?

    I don't know much about Glycine except they're a respected name in the business. I love the styling on it. Enjoy it!!!

    I don't know much about Glycine either. I have bought a couple off ebay - but they were both in poor condition so I just flipped them. Yours looks nice.

    I've never seen one with the days in Spanish. They are usually in French. Judging by the style it is definitely from the 70's. If you could get a picture of the movement in would help in giving you more information. A beautiful watch in my opinion. I love the vintage watches Glycine made.
