    New Watch! Whatcha think of Airman?

    Recently acquired a new Glycine Airman Vintage 1953. Switched out the nato for a brown croc bund strap.

    What do you guys think?

    The watch is absolutely beautiful, the strap isn't- Airman + Bund= OK, Bund + gator or croc= something bizarre.

    Gotta agree. The watch is awesome. Probably the best Glycine around. The strap... no.

    Beautiful watch! Love the dial, bezel and hands on the watch.

    Would like to see it on another strap through.

    Great watch.
    Keep on switching - that bund is awkward, to say the least.

    First, the watch itself is great. Good job.

    Second, the band..not close to a direction I would have taken.

    Third, if Noon (12) is at the bottom, what time does the watch show? It's either 4:45 or...what? IDK

    Fourth, very nice watch.

    I've heard so many different games opinions on the "new" shipments of gylcines. I dig this exact airman model. How does the quality feel compared to comparable models?

    Count me among those who love the watch but aren't feelin' the strap.

    The watch clearly shows the time as 16:46, so I guess I don't understand what you don't understand.
