Why We Love it

Why We Love It

Watches used to do so much more than tell time. 

As a legacy, we even refer to certain watches as "tool watches" indicating that they served more than one purpose. This Gallet Dual Register Chronograph is a remnant of that. Look at that multi-scale dial, both telemeter and tachymeter scales are present on the dial.

Telemeter scales (use to determine distance via sound), and the more familiar Tachymeter scales (used to measure speed over a known distance) are printed on the outside of the dial in bright blue and red coloring which contrasts the crisp sunburst silver dial of this mid-century chronograph.

Punching well above its 36mm weight, and from an important Swiss name, theres a lot to love about this column wheel chronograph Excelsior Park powered Gallet! 

The Story

The Gallets have been making watches in Switzerland since 1466, when Humbertus Gallet became a citizen of Geneva. Nearly four hundred years later, in 1826, Julien Gallet registered the name Gallet et Cie for his watchmaking company and relocated to La Chaux-du-Fonds. From then on, the company only started to expanded, even into the United States, becoming one of the best-known names in watchmaking.

Gallet achieved an impressive number of impressive wristwatch “firsts," including the first waterproof chronograph wristwatch.

Of the many watches produced by Gallet in the 20th century, the MultiChron chronographs are some of the most significant and collectible today. Although they are refined and stylish, they were initially intended as tool watches for military and industrial professionals. The MultiChron 12H, so named for its third register and capability of recording up to twelve hours, found use in aviation, motorsports, and military applications, as the easily readable dial, black Arabic numerals and colored outer scales, allow for quick and precise reading.
