Founded on the eastern or "German" side of Biel or Bienne, Switzerland in 1913, Glycine quickly become known for its opulent designs and jewel-encrusted works of wrist art. After WWI, Glycine capitalized on its reputation for elegance, providing mesmeric creations to starlets and others who sought to maximize their experiences in the Jazz Age.
And, with elements of Jazz Age once again upon us, it's refreshing to have an evening wear timepiece that reflects the exquisite taste of the era. Certainly this exceedingly handsome men’s 1928 Glycine wristwatch in solid 14k white gold castes such an impression. Measuring a svelte 42mm lug-tip to lug-tip by 22mm wide, it is big enough to create a presence; yet discreet enough to be tasteful. A true work of wrist art, perfect for those picturesque moments when gorgeous women are elevating glasses of champagne and admiring enviable treasures from Old Hollywood.
We've professionally cleaned, oiled and calibrated this high-grade, 17 ruby jewel Swiss mechanism so that it keeps time as the mechanical artists of Glycine intended.
Created by one of Europe's pre-eminent watch houses, elegantly offered in a period leather presentation box, this rare, solid white gold gentlemen’s wristwatch is the stuff of dreams.
