Vintage (1920-1970)



Up for consideration is a extremely hard to find Gallet Multichron Navigator GMT chronograph wristwatch. These only come up for sale on average about one per year. This watch features a fully serviced Excelsior Park 4 chronograph movement, and all functions of this watch work perfectly, and the watch itself keeps excellent time. All pieces are original, all I had done was a complete cleaning and oiling. There is some spotting to the dial, but I did not want to refinish or replace the dial, so I left the original just the way it was. It needs a new crystal, there are some light scratches and a small crack at the 12 position in the crystal. Case, pushers and crowns are steel, dial is not like most of the other models, this has a red and blue outer telemeter ring. The crown on the 9 o'clock position hacks the seconds chapter for synchronization. The red hand with the letter N is for GMT time associated with the current time on dial, but was also used to calculate North as a compass. Please refer to the last photo for usage of all features of this watch. This was given as a retirement gift to a member of the U.S. Coast Guard in 1950. Below is a description from the Gallet website on these watches:

MultiChron Navigator
Introduced in 1943 (Patent 15 Nov 1944)

Upon its release in 1943, the Gallet MultiChron Navigator chronograph was one of the most advanced and complex multi-function “tool watches” ever created for professional use.

Designed to fill the many timekeeping and time recording requirements of pilots, navigators, and explorers, the Navigator was the world's first wrist chronograph that simultaneously displayed both 12 and 24 hour time. The additional 24 hour or "North" hand made it possible to also calculate compass directions. An additional winding crown located at the 9 position stopped (hacked) and adjusted the continuous second hand, allowing for split second synchronization.

Due to the higher cost of this specialty timepiece, sales of the MultiChron Navigator were limited. As a result, this unique professional watch is a rare and highly desirable item for the advance collector.

Please see photos and read complete item description for details, and if you should have any questions regarding this, please feel free to ask. All items are sold AS-IS. Thanks for looking!
