Story: Since its founding in 1914 by the ingenious Eugène Meylan, the professional production in Biel/Bienne, has enabled Glycine to offer the finest timepieces in Swiss craftsmanship. Initially specializing in miniature movements, clad in precious gold, gems, and platinum cases for women, the brand soon embraced the gentlemen’s watch, becoming a favorite among the British and American jet-set.

As the Glycine profile expanded and heightened, so too did the horological inventions by Meylan: Most notably, the EMSA module. Patented in 1931, the EMSA transformed the normal hand-wound watch into an automatic charge. This engineering meant that the time could just be set, and the EMSA advancement became a standard that literally altered the experience of time itself.

In 1953, at the request of British pilot and commander, Chat Brown, Glycine pioneered the design for the first “Airman” watch. The Airman immediately garnered icon status as it was the first to introduce multiple time-zone watches. Following this landmark creation, Glycine has developed multiple generations and in 1965, on the spacesuit of NASA astronaut, Pete Conrad, the Airman successfully traveled to outer space and back home for the Gemini 5 flight.

While the development of the Airman is certainly a hallmark moment of achievement for the brand, with early appearances at Basel and the World’s Fair, excellence and ingenuity have always been at the fore. More than 100 years after the creation of his first Glycine watch, Meylan's spirit lives on. With its acquisition by Invicta Watch Group in 2016, Glycine is now, more than ever, positioned to expand, creating distinctive timepieces predicated upon the unique vision established by Meylan. The prestige continues, making modern history with a range of new, timeless traditions.
