After watching a romantic movie, it’s time for some classic gifts ! The well known Glycine Incursore collection is back with their ii and iii models. Costs being comparatively low, they come with different dials and styles in automatic and manually wound movements. The pricing on a manually wound Unitas 6498 is practically the same as automatic ETA 2924. When such is the case, who would want to choose a manual movement one over an automatic watch?
But yes, there are still people who consider buying it. The only difference between the two watches is that the seconds needle [in the auto] against a subsidiary seconds needles in the manual model. They have a 44mm wide steel case [100 mts water resistant] with a metal bracelet or a broad leather strap with some dial options. a ‘standard’ basic model with a combination of Arabic and Baton markers and a ‘California dial’ that has both Roman and Arabic numerals is widely available.
They come in black, aubergine and dark blue colour dials and different textures, well and superbly finished right to the case. While some bring out a polished look, some bear a brushed appearance, making it seem that Glycine is out to satisfy its customers of all kinds. Mainly because if the people have come upto a stage when they choose brands like Glycine, then they are at a stage when sapphires are far more pleasing than minerals, for their superior quality/clarity and high scratch proof quality.
Glycine is depending on the value proposition of these watches mainly for people looking for a Swiss watch with a traditional sporty style at a competitive price. It is priced at 890 Swiss Francs for a leather strap and 990 Swiss Francs for a metal case watch!
