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.
Since the dawn of the 20th century, Gallet has been manufacturing high-grade chronographs such as this one for sports timing and aviation use. 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, a Multichron Pilot, dates to the late 1980s and features a twin-register layout with an incredible silver sunburst dial. In time-capsule like condition, this watch features a Venus 188 manually-winding chrono movement with sunsidiary seconds and 45-minute counter, a step up from the budget versions being offered to the American market at the time, which leads us to believe this was originally sold in Europe. Also featuring a uni-directional outer rotating bezel with 12-hour scale, this gorgeous aviator's watch is as functional as it is beautiful, and wears great at a smidge under 38mm.
For an understated chronograph from a brand with a load of history, this is an absolutely tremendous value. Don't miss it!
