Glycine Incursore Power Reserve DLC military-style watch
Glycine, the Swiss watch maker, has revealed its new addition to the Incursore line of watches named after WW2-time Italian combat divers (in Italian, the word “incursore” means “commando,” a military unit specially trained to wreak havoc behind enemy lines.)
Called Glycine Incursore Power Reserve DLC (ref. 3880), this nice military-style timepiece comes equipped with a high-legible dial that features a matte black background and large Arabic numerals and hour markers filled with light grey luminescent substance.
The diamond-shaped hour and minute hands are also luminous.
The new watch also features a big date indicator located at 3 o’clock and an interesting-looking power reserve indicator in the colors of Italian national flag: green, red and a little white.
Clearly designed to be worn with casual dress, new timekeeper is presented in an impressive 46 mm stainless steel case that features a scratch-resistant DLC coating with military-inspired satin finish.
Having a list price of just shy of $4000 US dollars, the watch has its dial protected from dust and particles with a sapphire glass that offers a not so common anti-reflective treatment and also features a powerful magnifying lens over the calendar window.
Although the new Italian watch is not terribly cheap, it is equipped with a mass-produced ETA A07.161 automatic movement.
Built on 24 jewels, the movement offers a more or less standard power reserve of 46 hours, which means that you will anyway have to wind its main spring every other day.
The good news is that the movement seems to be of top grade execution.
As you can see on the photos below, its bridges are perlaged, while the quarter plate is decorated with finely executed Geneva stripes.
Besides quality Cotes de Geneve decoration, the oscillating weight of the winding rotor not only branded, but is also stamped with numerous E-shaped Glycine crowns. A very nice touch, that.
