A Less Rectangular Option

The last time I brought Glycine to your attention, it was to take a look at a watch that firmly rectangular.  Today, I’d like to revisit them, but with one of their watches that has a softer feel to it – their Altus Chronograph.  As you can see, the case is a bit more rounded, but still keeps a tonneau-inspired design that fits nicely on the wrist.

The case itself is made of stainless steel, and measures in at 46.5mm tall by 38.7mm wide, ensuring a good presence on the wrist.  It also contains a domed sapphire crystal up front, and a mineral glass crystal in the case back.  This, of course, allows you to see the ETA 7750 automatic movement at work.

The 7750 movement offers up the following functionality:

  • Hours / minutes / seconds
  • Date display
  • Chronograph 60s
  • 30 minute and 12 hour counters
  • 48 hour power reserve

This is a quietly elegant watch, and I think the combo I’ve shown here (blue dial on 22mm leather strap) is the most aesthetically pleasing of the three variations.  The other two being a black dial on leather, or a yellow (antique white?) dial on rubber (also on offer is a stainless steel bracelet).  Personally, I think the antique white dial on the leather strap would be the most desirable combination.  And, from how their page is worded, that might be quite possible. Of course, at approximately $2900, one would hope you could get the exact combination you desire.

 

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
