Hi,

there's a Glycine Airman on Ebay, I'd like some informed advice on it if someone would be kind enough.... it looks a bit 'funny' to me:
Should there be a date magnifyer (maybe a replacement crystal)?
Is the minute hand too long/incorrect?
Should the caseback be a screw-on?
Should there be writeing on the (very plain) caseback?

thanks in advance,

I'm not an expert, but had some of the same issues as you with this one. Going by the lume on the dial and on the hands, my guess would be the hands have been relumed/replaced at some point, possibly with a "new" minute hand. The case back does not look right to me. Inscription could have been polished off, but this caseback seems some sort of generic replacement. It would be nice to see the movement also, but unfortunately. I will not be gambling on this one.

I asked the seller to put in some photos of the movement, he said he'd do it on monday, but there's too many 'little' things that make it non-original, that's it for me too,

cheers,
