Airman Sphair

This is the Airman 18 Sphair from Glycine.
Courtesy of Glycine

A slightly smaller version at 39 mm, it is the details that really make this Airman stand out from the other member's of Glycine's fleet.

Stainless steel, combined with rubber - yes the concept has been pioneered by others, but often that just seemed to be using rubber for the sake of it.  But in the case of the Sphair it is really a combination that not just works, but creates a whole new watch.  Well done Glycine!
