GALLET Falying Officer
Here we have a beautiful Gallet Flying Officer, a wonderful example of a classic chronograph. This WRISTCLASSIC comes with a crisp case in great condition. Dating to the 1970s this classic model measures 36.5 mm. The dial is in nice vintage condition and the large hands give this piece extra charm and character. Powered by a Landeron 149 movement, running strong and keeping time well, it is ready for its job. The watch comes with a dark strap in unworn condition, completing this cool and sportive chronograph. This extraordinary timepiece is getting harder and harder to find nowadays.
Gallet as a historical Swiss manufacturer of first-class watches for professional, military, sports and aviation purposes is the world's oldest clock making house dating back to Mr. Humbertus Gallet, a clock maker who became a citizen of Genève in 1466. The Gallet Company of today is one of the few existing independent Swiss watch brands still upholding in-house manufacturing facilities.
