From its founding by Eugène Meylan in 1914, Glycine has continuously produced fine Swiss watches at its factory in Bienne, Switzerland. Meylan was an uncompromising watch engineer who strived for perfection and nothing else. He possessed a profound understanding of both the demands of the marketplace and the great possibilities offered by the technological advances of his era. A century has passed and more than 100 years after the creation of his first Glycine watch, Meylan’s spirit lives on! Glycine more than ever burns its own trail by creating distinctive timepieces predicated upon the unique DNA developed by Meylan, always a bit outside of the mainstream Today, Glycine is recognized as one of the real pioneers for aviation and world timer watches for pilots and frequent travelers.
Since its founding in 1914 Glycine has remained a Swiss family company which has always been managed by charismatic entrepreneurs full of passion for outstanding solutions in the Swiss watch industry.
