Glycine Resource -

Post by Racer-X » June 10th 2020, 2:36am

"This website is THE platform for vintage Glycine watches, a collector's self accomplishment. The name of my website comes from Glycine + Centennial, celebrating the 100th year anniversary of continuous watchmaking history of the brand. I was dragged into this brand and its products when I bought a '70s Glycine divers model and had difficulties in finding information related to it.

My search for information became an obsession and made me realize that not all 100 year old companies have archives as I assumed. So at one point satisfying my thirst for Glycine I started browse the web and became member of some watch forums with the hope of finding out more. Meeting hobby-mates and sharing similar concerns triggered my research. Long story short, after a year of deep search from Swiss libraries, family trees, patent institutes and printed documents, I finally had a solid archive where and how to position Glycine watches. By that time I already had several dozens of vintage Glycine watches and categorized them all.

I realized that it's the journey rather than the destination I have enjoyed and decided to share my joy with all enthusiasts by building this website in 2013."

Good to see Glycintennial back online. Emre, the man behind the site, is possibly the most knowledgeable guy when it comes to vintage Glycine.
