The Glycine Airman is one fascinating classic watch that every watch enthusiast should know. It was first made in 1953 for pilots and had unique features like a 24-hour dial (rather than standard 12 hours), and a rotating bezel to track a second time zone. The modern version known as the Glycine Airman Base 22 remains very close to the original but adds a GMT hand (on some versions) for tracking a third time zone, as well as a modern Swiss automatic movement and materials like sapphire crystal. Right now, there’s a chance to get it for a whopping near 80% off its $2,700 retail price at just $529 with different color options. That’s a hell of a deal for a solid watch that enthusiasts will appreciate.

A note on Drop:
Drop is not like other online retailers. It’s a members-only site that requires signing up (all it takes is an email address). If you’re not a member, you can sign up here. When you place an order from Drop at a discounted price, you’re not buying from them directly. The site works by taking orders from consumers, then bulk ordering product at a discount directly from brands and other wholesalers. For more information on how Drop works, click here.
