1960s Gallet MultiChron 45
Gallet & Co. has been synonymous with horology for 550 years dating back to the year 1466 when founded by Humbertus Gallet. Gallet & Co. introduced some of the most useful wristwatch complications of today including the first wrist-worn chronograph, regatta timer, and GMT chronograph. Gallet today remains well respected among vintage enthusiasts alike and appreciated for its fine attention to detail and wonderfully executed wristwatches.
The MultiChron line of watches designed by Gallet are the most popular and revered by collectors because of their usually larger case sizes and tool watch applications. The MultiChrons were always designed with an intended purpose in mind and their highly legible dials make for perfect daily wearing.
This Multichron 45 is as versatile as it gets. Sporting the robust Landeron-149 chronograph movement housed in the 35.5mm case size, which wears much larger due to its large black dial format. Stylistically this watch is sporty but can also play the roll of a dress watch due to its modest size and simple dial layout. The black dial is pretty uncommon for these Multichron 45's, as they're mostly seen with white dials with blue and or red print, giving this watch a good unique factor for anyone looking for an interesting chronograph daily driver.
