VINTAGE 1940’s GALLET WATERPROOF STAINLESS STEEL MILITARY STYLE SPEEDKING SIZE GENTLEMEN’S WATCH

This lovely 1940’s waterproof Gallet is a great example of the waterproof watches being released from most of the major manufacturers in the wake of the Rolex Speedking. In fine condition throughout and completely original in every respect.

The watch measures 31mm across the bezel, not including the crown and 36mm tip-to-tip. Manufactured from all stainless-steel and with screw-back waterproof type case. Un-polished with nice sharp edges to the lugs etc and the correct satin/polished finish.

The silvered dial is original and in super condition, with a beautiful mottled patina hinting at the age of the watch. The polished gold figures divisions and blued steel hands contrasting perfectly.

The hand winding 15 jewel movement, signed Gallet as it should be and is in superb condition, beautifully finished and working nicely.

The original waterproof winding crown is still present.

This is a very nice, clean and collectable 1940’s Gallet, in fine condition and fitted with a new quality alligator-grain leather strap.
