If you've never heard of Gallet, pay attention.
One of the oldest manufactures in Switzerland, Gallet has been around since 1466, and has a colorful and diverse history of watchmaking tradition. From one-off handmade pocket watches for kings to some of the first mass produced wristwatches in history, there is little road in the timekeeping industry on which Gallet hasn't tread in their 500+ year history. Gallet timepieces have been worn by individuals from every walk of life, including presidents, racing drivers, soldiers and pilots.
From the dawn of the 20th century onward, Gallet has been manufacturing high-grade chronographs such as this one for sports timing and aviation usage. The brand has an outstanding portfolio of innovations and world firsts, including the first wrist-worn chronograph, the first waterproof chronograph, the first regatta timer, the first chronograph with GMT hand, and the first chronograph with built-in worldtimer...just to name a few.
This particular piece, called a Multichron Pilot, features the legendary Valjoux 72 manually-wound chronograph movement and dates from the mid 1980s. Pairing textured white triple subsidiary registers with a silver sunburst dial, polished markers, and a bidirectional outer timing bezel, this piece has great vintage looks and wearable functionality.
