    Confused Help to identify the year and brand. - Glycine vintage watch

    I have found a Glycine quartz dress watch after my grandfather. My grandfather was a flight mechanic so the watch are well worn. I have never heard of Glycine before. How is Glycine as a brand? Can they be compared with Tag Heuer, Omega or Longines?
    I do not know from what year the watch is from.
    I have plans to fix the watch. Does anyone know approx. how much it will cost?
    On the back it stands "Stainless steel back", "Waterprotected" and 2235.

    Glycine has a long history - and its still going!

    See their site: ::: Glycine Watch SA ::: Bienne 1914 ::: Swiss Made ::: and the dedicated WUS forum https://forums.watchuseek.com/f18/

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Quartz, most likely early 80ties though. Sentimental value to be honest.

    The cost to fix it will depend on what is wrong with it, and what you want to fix. If the watch doesn't run, you'll probably need to swap out the entire module. New modules don't really cost much, but it depends on the quality...if we knew what was in it, we could possibly advise you as to a valid replacment. Beyond that, the most expensive bit would be replating the case. Depend on how good a job you want, that'll range from $50+. The biggest cost there is the removing the original plate and polishing the base metal smooth. There looks to be pitting on the back by the top lugs; that would probably need to be filled in with solder or something. The more you pay, the better the job (as with most things). The crown doesn't look signed, so you could just replace that with a new one.

    Thanks. I think I will take the trip down to the local watch-man to fix it.
