HISTORY
wpeCC.jpg (28927 bytes)

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 first wristwatch with a center-originating sweep second hand for heart rate calculation (1912)
  • The first wrist chronograph with a waterproof case (Gallet MultiChron, 1936)
  • The first chronograph wristwatch with multiple time zone calculator (Gallet Flight Officer, 1938)
  • The first miniature chronograph wristwatch for professional women (Gallet MultiChron Petite, 1939)
  • The first chronograph wristwatch with additional 24 hour GMT hand (Gallet MultiChron Navigator GMT, 1945)
  • The first 24 hour reading wrist chronograph (Gallet MultiChron 24, 1947)1896 Swiss National Exposition, Geneva — Silver Medal1905 Universal Exposition of Liege — Grand Diploma of Honor1912 Kew Observatory, London – “A” Class Certificates, Special and Series Prizes for the Best Chronometers at Neuchâtel

    1913 Kew Observatory, London – “A” Class Certificates, Special and Series Prizes for the Best Chronometers at Neuchâtel

    1914 Swiss National Exposition, Berne — Grand Prize in the Chronometer category

    1917 Canton Observatory, Neuchâtel — 1st Place Award for Chronometer Accuracy

     


GALLET WAS FAMOUS FOR CHRONOGRAPHS AND TIMERS FROM 1910 THROUGH WW1,WWII, TO 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.

AT THE OUT BREAK OF WWII, AND UP UNTIL THE GALLET DECIMAL ARTILLERY TIMER WAS INTRODUCED IN 1943,  THE GALLET OCCURRENCE TIMER, CUSTOM MANUFACTURED IN 1936 FOR THE US GEOLOGICAL SURVEY, WAS THE FIRST GALLET TIMER UTILIZED BY THE US MILITARY

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 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

J.jpg (58186 bytes)

 

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

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

ex.jpg (50024 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. The cooperative relationship of Excelsior Park and Gallet leads to the development of a number of time recording mechanisms, including the calibre 40. These new chronograph movements are utilized almost exclusively in Gallet and Excelsior Park wristwatches, with a small number supplied to the Girard Perregaux and Zenith companies when production capabilities allowed.

AVIATION MILITARY WATCH

[NOTE, THIS WAS NOT PART OF THE ORIGINAL ITEMS BUT I KNEW THIS MILITARYWATCHBOX REQURED A WATCH THAT MATCHED THE TIME AND DATE]


THE A-11 HAS A CLAIM TO FAME

Bomber and fighter crews and pilots required the ability to mission with time. The most crucial contribution to an Allied victory was the delivery of ordinence across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Pacific over land and sea.

For critical timing the United States Army/Navy Air Forces utilized the A-11 Hacking Wrist watch.

The A-11 was a specification and US production standard for mainly US  Air Corps wrist watches that were produced under contract with the US Government War department by Elgin, Bulova and Waltham.

Though most design aspects were universal:

Black dial, white hands, a handwound hacking movement with center sweep second hand, same minute and hour hands, hour numbers from 1 to 12, a second chapter scale with smaller minute/second numbers in increments of 10 on the outside edge of the dial,  accuracy of 30 seconds per day at room temperaturewas contract specified, there were MINOR case and dial/hands variations, SUCH AS COIN BEZEL VS SMOOTH BEZEL.

The company was established in New York in 1890 by Albert WITTNAUER (1856-1908), a Swiss clockmaker. The company produced watches, clocks and aircraft instruments. WITTNAUER produced compasses in cooperation with the famous Swiss watch maker Longines.  Wittnauer was Longines agent during WWI.  The Longines Wittnauer Watch Company (LWWW Co.) was created in 1936.
