GLYCINE AIRMAN SST PUMPKIN

WORKING HACK CROSS HATCH CROWN / 24 HOUR MILITARY / Vietnam

This is a very rare vintage Glycine Airman SST “Pumpkin” watch in excellent condition. This watch dates from 1969-1971 and at the time was the watch of choice for many airline pilots.

The “ SST “  was introduced and named for the forthcoming BOEING 2707 ,the denomination stands for SuperSonic Transport.

 The SST was ultimately not manufactured and cancelled in 1971 by the U.S Congress,a proposed design being engraved to the rear of the watch case.

The “Pumpkin” being the orange colour to the rotating bezel inside the crystal.

This watch has a 24 hour display meaning the hour hand only rotates once each day. The dial is two-tone: grey for AM and black for PM. There is an internal bezel rotated by the top crown which enables you to keep time in another time zone. There is also a wire hacking mechanism between the 2 and the 4 of the 24 on the inner dial which can be used to stop the second hand. The date is shown at 3pm.

The watch is big for a ‘vintage’, measuring 42mm across by 51mm down by 12mm thick, with 22mm lugs. The stainless steel case maintains its original sunburst finish and the plexi crystal is in great shape.

The watch will also come with a barely used and very comfortable 22mm leather strap with buckle, as shown.

The watch comes complete with its original birch wooden box / Original stainless steel Bracelet / Original Instruction Papers Manual.
