    Glycine S.O.S 500m Super Compressor

    or maybe not.
    I decided to buy it despite some obvious ? marks...

    The black case detail can be turned to protect the crown.









    The back with compressor markings AND non screwed!? remember, 500m waterproof...




    When backlid is snapped of...









    The ETA 2783 is visible






    A few closeups of the dial...














    Of course the backlid will not snap back now, Il have to try some sort of steady pressure. The problem is a steel spring which i guess is used for hooking on one of the backlid "rims"...



    Thanks for the scroll and have a great weekend!

    Holy cow! That's the coolest dive watch I've seen on here in a long time. Thanks for the great pics.

    How did they get 500 m WR with a snap-on caseback???

    That's a very nice one. How old is it? It seems to be from the 70ies, right?
    Have a wonderful time...

    Thanks guys, a snap on case can NEVER be waterproof to 500m?
    But if this is a frankenwatch, its pretty well made. The structure of the lid is very solid and Ive never seen one with these types of "grooves" before. Who would put that much energy in building an old glycine diver? And whats up with the S.O.S?

    Id guess somewhere around the 70s, the ETA caliber was available back then.

    Looks like the Glycine Incursore "Arco" inherited a lot from your watch

    Very nice!

    I like it! I have a Glycine Airman and Stratoforte and in my Opinion the Glycine are very underrated Timepieces. Awesome Diver you have there! Cheers!
