A few weeks ago we featured a Glycine Airman F104, which we appreciate was not to everyone’s taste given the single dial hands and manual winding movement. The Airmans Base 22, will appeal to more people. Not only is it an automatic (Swiss ETA 2893-2 – 21 Jewels) movement, it has a more conventional look, size, and best of all it’s cheaper. This really is one of the best bargain for under £1,000 at this moment of time
The spearhead of todays Airman collection is the Airman 22. This ultimate pilot watch is a real masterpiece, setting a new limit for size and conceptual unity of design and technology.
