SOLD - Vintage 1960's Glycine Automatic Compressor Dive Watch EPSA Case
This is the type of watch that James Bond really should have worn. We love these 60's compressors because they can function as a dress watch and dive watch, and are extremely well made due to the use of a compressor case. This Glycine also had a date complication and is 34mm across without including the original cross-hatched crown and about 42mm lug to lug with a 18mm strap size. If you're not too familiar with compressors and their importance in the dive community; you should read up on them. They are becoming immensely sought after as they should be, given a full stainless steel case which is like a little tank, automatic high-grade movement, and a really cool design that compresses the case for better water tightness the deeper you get. This particular Glycine has a near mint never refinished untouched silver dial with all the correct markings and rare crosshairs at the center. The watch is presented on an Army green NATO strap but could be easily dressed up for more formal occasions. That's the beauty of these compressors, very functional. Just serviced and running strong and keeping great time. There are no notable issues with this watch and just a handful to see the market - underlining the rareness of this piece.
