Gallet is the world’s oldest watch and clock making house with history dating back to Humbertus Gallet, a clock maker who became a citizen of Geneva in 1466. The Gallet & Cie (Gallet & Company) name was officially registered by Julien Gallet (1806–1849) in 1826, who moved the family business from Geneva to La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Prior to this date, operations commenced under the name of each of the family patriarchs.

 Gallet is best known during the 20th century to the present day for its line of MultiChron chronograph wristwatches. Produced primarily for military, industrial, and other professional applications, Gallet’s MultiChron watches often incorporated a number of advanced timekeeping innovations.

A Gallet timepiece of particular renown was the Flight Officer time zone chronograph. Commissioned by Senator Harry S. Truman in 1939 for pilots of the United States Army Air Forces, the Flight Officer (a.k.a. Flying Officer) had a rotating 12 hour bezel and the names of 48 major world cities printed on the periphery of the dial (face). These features made it possible to calculate changes in the time as an aviator flew across lines of longitude. Besides being the first time zone calculating wristwatch, the Flight Officer was one of the world’s first wrist chronographs to be housed in a water resistant case. Truman wore a Gallet Flight Officer during his terms as 33rd president (1945–1953).

Léon Gallet set his sights on the rest of the world markets. In 1864, Léon’s brother, Lucien Gallet (1834–1879), established the company’s first US location in Chicago with a New York City office following soon after. Together with Jules Racine, a cousin of the Gallet brothers living in the US,the company began its expansion into the American market.

When the worldwide economic downturn of the 1930’s caused international trade to plunge by as much as two-thirds, it suddenly became unprofitable for the Gallet Company to continue production of many of its recently established brands. Gallet chose instead, to consolidate its efforts back into its primary area of expertise, that of the manufacture of high quality professional-use timepieces. Under the family name, the Gallet Company continued to flourish by providing hand-held timers and chronograph wristwatches toallied military and industrial clients during the years leading up to and through World War II. 

A wartime Gallet timepiece of particular renown was the Flight Officer time-zone chronograph (1939 – present). Commissioned by Senator Harry S. Truman’s senatorial staff in 1939 for the United States Army Air Force, this wristwatch made it possible to calculate changes in the time as a pilot flew across lines of longitude

GALLET WAS FAMOUS FOR CHRONOGRAPHS AND TIMERS FROM 1910 THROUGH WW1 AND THROUGH WWII AND INTO KOREA & VIETNAM:

When the worldwide economic downturn of the 1930’s caused international trade to plunge by as much as two-thirds, it suddenly became unprofitable for the Gallet Company to continue production of many of its recently established brands. Gallet chose instead, to consolidate its efforts back into its primary area of expertise, that of the manufacture of high quality professional-use timepieces. Under the family name, the Gallet Company continued to flourish by providing hand-held timers and chronograph wristwatches to allied military and industrial clients during the years leading up to and through World War II.

FURTHER, GALLET WAS A MAJOR PARTNER & BACKER WITH JULES RACINE

1864 – Léon Gallet’s brother Lucien Gallet establishes the company’s first US location in Chicago, with a New York City office following soon after Together with Jules Racine, a cousin of the Gallet brothers living in the US, the company expands its distribution to the American market.

AND

GALLET WAS A MAJOR PARTNER & BACKER WITH EXCELSIER PARK;

 wpe12D.jpg (15236 bytes)

 Jeanneret and Fils created Usine du Parc, by 1890 the company is called Alb and  produces anchor watches from 13 to 24 lines, calendar watches and chronographs under the trademarks Colombe and Diana.In 1894 the factory is renamed Jeanneret Frères and produces chronographs. 

On March 21th 1891 a sport stopwatch called “Excelsior” is patented by Alb. Jeanneret et Frères, it has a movement side bridge in the shape of J; which l becomes a trademark for Excelsior Park

wpeF1.jpg (27460 bytes)

 By 1902, the company is named of Jeanneret-Brehm and Co and sells s stopwatches under the Excelsior trademark.

wpeF7.jpg (35593 bytes)

In 1911 Jeaneret -Brehm & Co, along with Gallet, introduce two button (Crown Push and Side Pusher) and Henri Jeanneret-Brehm, a member of the esteemed Jeanneret family of St. Imier watchmakers, purchases the Magnenat-Lecoultre factory with financial assistance from the Gallet company.

By 1918, The Jeanneret-Brehm company becomes Excelsior Park and offers stopwatches and  chronographs .

wpeFC.jpg (22151 bytes)

1918 – Jeanneret-Brehm begins manufacturing under the company name Excelsior Park. Deriving the name from Jenneret-Brehm’s previously registered “Excelsior” trademark, the English variation of the French word for “park” is utilized at the prompting of Gallet to support the collaborative efforts of the two companies in their marketing focus on the American consumer.

Beginning in the 1920’s, Excelsior Park concentrates exclusively on the stopwatches and chronographs.

In 1921 a patent concerning a bolt, independent of the push-piece crown for starting timing, allowing the stopping of the hand, is filed.

On  May 24th, 1922, Excelsior Park patents a small housing inside a movement to place spare parts. That will become also a kind of trademark, making possible instantaneously to recognize an Excelsior Park movement.

While one hand moves continuously, the other one can be either stopped AND started with the left push button; or stop the blaxck hand with center crown button Or reset to zero with center button. The center crown winds the watch and also houses a pusher that starts and stops the chrono. The left pusher controls the red center hand. When running, the black hand continues registering the minutes on the small 10 minute register at the top of the watch. The black and red hands can be repeatedly stopped. In order to stop and bring both hands to zero, you push the left button then the crown all action then click the pusher in the center crown to returns both hands to zero.

IN WWII, EVERY LANDING CRAFT [LST] WAS ASSIGNED

IT HAS J BRIDGE AND SLIDE PATENTED IN 1911

49X68 W/BAIL/BALE

IMG_8493.JPG (128350 bytes)

THIS WAS IN ROUGH SHAPE ..CASE WAS SEVERLY DENTED DUE TO
POOR CARE. WE WERE ABLE TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT. THOUGH CLOSING
CASE BACK REQUIRES A LITTLE EXTRA WORK AND THE TIMER WORKS
BUT WHEN RESETTING THE HANDS, SOMETIME THE SUB-REGISTER HAND DOES NOT RETURN. REASON IS WE HAD TO FIND A HAND AND ASSOCIATED PARTS
ONE OF WHICH WAS NOT FOR THIS MODEL. SO IT REMAINS TIGHT. IT WILL EVENTUALLY LOOSEN UP, BUT ROCK BELIVE THE VALUE OF THIS BEAUTY RESTS
IN LEAVING IT AS IT IS. JUST CHECK OUT THE LAST PHOTO AND YOU WILL SEE WHY
