    My Grail arrived - but not a Doxa!!!

    Hi All
    Been after this watch for a long time and finally managed to get a hold of one. It's not a Doxa but when you see it you'll realise its not too far away.
    I've got a black Whiteshark and an Orange 300T reissue so something that combines the two??


    It's a Glycine Airman SST 06 or more commonly known as a Pumpkin. Originally out in the 60's but nearly impossible to get an original. This one is the 24hr 'purist'. Here's a couple more pics and thanks for looking.
    Cheers

    That is one great looking watch, and I think it goes nice with the Doxas. The hands on that watch look GREAT!!!!
    Best Regards,

    Well thats a rare sight - fantastic watch and probably would not take a lot to have it looking good. Does it still run?

    I just purchased my first Glycine and I must say they are fantastic watches. I would rate them slightly below Kobold. That is an awesome watch. Where on earth did you find it?

    Beautiful watch.
    A local guy who services some watches for me here in Sydney is an AD for Glycine and had one there when I last dropped in - looked great in the flesh.
    I was tempted, but had other targets at the time.
    One day...
    Great pick-up

    Cheers

    Got it from the moderator on the Glycine forum as he has a great collection. Spotted it one day in one of the Saturday watches type threads and waited for it ever since.

    Think it was a 2006 watch.
