FS: 1964 Glycine Airman with Original Box

CASE: The 36mm steel case is in very good condition. It’s clearly never been polished, and the lugs retain their sharp facets. Original cross-hatched crown, and the caseback’s worn but clear enough to still show all etching, including the serial number. The crystal has some strange damage on its inside near 9 o’clock; that’s the only cosmetic issue I can see with the case. The bezel currently doesn’t rotate because the lower crown is stuck; it’s clearly just filthy, and should be fine once cleaned up.

DIAL+HANDS: Excellent and original. The lume on the hands is very slightly lighter than the lume on the dial, but they glow and fade identically (they last maybe 10 seconds after being charged by a UV light). All original and untouched and in very good shape.

MVMT: I believe this is an A Schild in here. It’s working, and seems to keep generally okay time, but I’m not monitoring it for accuracy (I keep trying/failing to force myself to enjoy 24 hour dials). Yes, the original hacking mechanism’s there: a tiny wire pops up between the 2 and 4 at the top of the dial and stops the seconds hand. I don't know the service history on this, and as I understand it it's been sitting in its box for several years, so presume this will need care if regular use is planned.

The watch comes with its original box, but no papers or bracelet or anything else.

Price is $2000 net to me. Happy to answer any questions, provide as many references as are requested, and arrange shipping/payment methods with the buyer. Thanks for looking, and to Jeff/CT for the space+community.
