Glycine Watch back in the USA

February 2001

The Glycine SA watch factory based in Bienne, Switzerland, which has specialized in manufacturing mechanical watches since 1914, has signed an exclusive long-term contract with Rabco Luxury Holdings LLC and is securing its position on the world market.
In the U.S.A., the return of the watches designed by Glycine, with their spectacular diameters, has been greeted with enthusiasm. Glycine has already aroused a great deal of interest. In order to meet this demand, Rabco Luxury Holdings LLC has taken on the sole agency for the U.S.A., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean Islands - under the name of Glycine LLC.

For almost one century, the Glycine watch factory of Bienne has been occupying an outstanding position in the European watch market.
Thanks to Glycine LLC, located in Manhattan New York, the traditional factory of Bienne is now represented in the United States too, as well as in Canada, Mexico and in the Caribbean Islands.
The watches, with their impressive characteristic dials, have been successful in Italy, the home of the designers.
These time-pieces are being produced in limited quantities. They are appealing not only because of their very large dial, but also on account of their see-through glass back which allows their inner mechanism to be seen.
All these models have the pure and straight lines of a famous industrial design and are sought after by people looking for an outstanding product.
The watches are easily recognizable by their particular profile and use of materials. That is why Glycine Watch SA, with this outstanding line, is representing a new generation of watch-makers and is gaining an increasing position in the highly competitive world-wide watch market.
