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.

We like  this watch a lot.  It reminds us of the L.E.D watches of the 70s from the likes of Omega and hopefully, like those watches, these will have a strong following for decades to come.  Yes you can buy more advanced smart watche,s with better functionality, and full colour screens for half the price but will you still be wearing them in one, two or three years? Probably not.  At just over £700 this starts to look like a good buy, and is a seriously cool watch to past down the generations.
