Werner Siegrist was born in Switzerland where the best watchmakers in the world are trained. After four years of schooling he graduated and became a "Master Watchmaker". Shortly after graduation he joined the Glycine Watch Company.

In 1967 he moved to the United States to help The Glycine Watch Co. better service their growing American market. Starting in 1968, he managed the Glycine Sales & Service Center and in 1972 Werner bought the business and ran it under the name Glycine Sales & Service Center and in 1991 incorporated the business and named it Falcon Watch Co.

Werner produced his own 24-hour watches, starting with the Glycine GMT-2000, followed with the Falcon GMT-2001 in 1995 and the GMT-3000 in 2001. There were also several Glycine quartz and automatic models sold under the Falcon name.

In January of 2012 Werner decided to retire and has sold Falcon Watch to Saltzman's Watches & More, who will continue the long tradition of Glycine service and sales. Saltzman's Watches & More has been in business for over 70 years, and Evan Saltzman is the 3rd generation of watch professionals. Saltzman's Watches has 2 retail locations and 3 fulltime watch makers on premises to repair all makes and models with a specialty in Glycine watches.

Glycine watches, with their unique 24 hour dials, were and still are very popular with Air Force, Navy and Commercial Pilots. His customer list grew to include Air Line pilots, Air Force One pilots and members of all branches of the military.

Today the Glycine Watch Company produces many types of watches to satisfy the needs of a diverse group of discriminating customers.
