An exquisite and classy GALLET & Co. [Swiss] chronograph watch, this rare timepiece from the late 1940’s has been professionally and fully serviced in-house here at our Localtime Spa.
It is in excellent authentic condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 33mm [35mm counting the centre crown] case is in excellent unpolished condition. The Valjoux Cal. 77 is a 13”’ manual-wind pillar wheel movement with 60s and 30m up-down sub-dials. This movement has a swivel pinion designed after Edouard Heuer’s patent from 1886 and the unusual features of the ratchet on the dial side and crown mechanism with rocker bar. The even patina dial and gorgeous blue hands are a feast to the eyes. We have included many photos, including some closeup snapshots we took, just for fun, and some from the service bench. This lovely chronograph is fitted with a handmade premium calf leather strap in brown, custom made for Localtime in Italy [more information and variations can be found in our eBay store, under eBay item number 401105271426].
