    Glycine Eugene Meylan quality, your opinions please..

    One of the Watches on my "wanted" list atm is the Glycine Eugene Meylan. But I've never had a watch from this brand before. Can anyone give me some info/opinions on the quality and finish of these ? Or even an insight into the feel/comfort of this particular model.


    The obvious alternative to this is the Longines Spirit, but the Glycine seems to be of a higher specification (but I'm certainly no expert when it comes to mechanical watches)....

    Your best bet is to probably try the Glycine forum. Now, take the rest with a grain of salt since it is all from secondary sources:

    From what I understand (I've been looking at the various Airman models), Glycine has recently been having a few quality control issues. I recall hearing of some watches being significantly off - e.g. 2 hours over a 24-hour time period. Hopefully they'll get the issue corrected.

    he is right;go to the GLYCINE forum; I was one of those with a brand new out of the box Airman SST 06 that in 24 hours was over 5 hours off and the hands did not line up, there are now several posts that address this; as said; some have had no issues and love them; I sent mine back for a full credit as I was told it would be 7weeks or so for service; not too impressed to spend $$$ and then wait for 7 weeks to wear my NEW watch, just my .02, dogdoc
