Glycine was founded in 1914 by Eugène Meylan in Bienne, Switzerland. The brand is known for producing high-quality, affordable timepieces that combine Swiss craftsmanship with innovative design. In the 1920s, Glycine became one of the first brands to produce wristwatches with a chronograph function. The brand has also produced a number of iconic models over the years, including the Airman, which was designed for pilots, and the Combat Sub, which was popular with soldiers during World War II. Today, Glycine continues to produce a range of classic and modern timepieces that are prized for their reliability and timeless style.
