Known for their Airman line and early vacuum chronometers (dive watches), Glycine started in 1914 in Bienne, Switzerland by Eugène Meylan. The company still exist today and is now owned by Invicta. 

Baylor ties

Baylor and Duval are owned by the Zales who were famous for rebranding Heuer and buying out a lot of the remaining stock Heuer had in the 70's to make their own line of watches. Baylor and Duval also had similar examples. The Baylor examples are probably a more common set since these were retailed at Zales.

Heuer's Camaro line only lasted a few years from 1968 through 1972. This used to be one of Heuer's unpopular line of vintage watches until recently with the rise of Heuer's vintage Carrera and Autavia lines at the forefront of the vintage watch market. For those wanting a "Heuer" in their collection, such as myself, will surely rather go for the more affordable option. For that, it is one of the reasons the Camaro had started to rise in popularity as well. I feel like this is what makes this Glycine Camaro so interesting and very desireable.

This Glycine "Camaro" is a product of good design and symmetry. A completely different design idea from other Glycine watches at the time. With the Crown logo up on top of the date, it makes it seem like its a seamless design rather than the annoying aftertought that most vintage and modern watches have to offer. The reverse panda (black dial with white sub dials) is always on everyone's radar for their classic design. It's simple and elegant and straight to the point.
