For more than a century, Glycine has been producing fine Swiss watches. Founded in 1914 by Eugène Meylan, the company began production runs in its Bienne, Switzerland factory, under the supervision of the uncompromising eye of Melyan.
A meticulous watch engineer, Meylan demanded perfection and was unsatisfied with anything less. Innovative and savvy, he had a strong grasp of not just the opportunities offered by the technology of the day but also what the watch market demanded. The results led to the first legendary Glycine watch, and this proud tradition continues today.
As a brand, Glycine is known for creating striking timepieces of distinction, blazing its own trail in the spirit of Meylan’s original designs. Firmly outside the box yet still featuring the iconic and classic designs that have made Glycine a success story, the Glycine watch of today is timeless. Whether it’s a Glycine Moonphase, a Glycine automatic watch, a Glycine GMT timepiece, or any other style, when you buy Glycine watches you join a strong tradition of those who value quality and design.
Meylan’s legacy lives on even into the 21st century. To this day, Glycine watches are still made by a family company, managed by passionate, charismatic entrepreneurs that are fully invested in the company’s history, reputation, and mission to provide some of the very best in Swiss watches at the crossroads of style and affordability.
