    1930's GALLET MULTICHRON REGULATOR on a JB Champion mesh bracelet

    Got the watch months ago but it never worked. Finally found someone who knew how to repair one of these! It took a few weeks, but when I got it back, I decided it needed a bit more presence on the wrist than what the initial leather strap was giving it. Settled on this vintage JB Champion mesh bracelet. I'm lovin' the way it looks now...it's a keeper! (This picture doesn't do it justice.)

    That is one pretty unique chronograph. Can't recall seeing one like it from that period. Great original dial. good luck

    Wow...That is outstanding. The dial is striking in both the design and the great even patina. Color me green with envy.

    Very nice,
    These regulator style chronos are rare.
    There's a Venus 140 movement in there, the chronoworks are unusualy on the dial side.

    Nice, I like those MulitChron regulators. One question, are there two pushers or just one? The very early models only had one pusher for the chronograph. Off the top of my head I think that both used the Venus 140, but not positive. Is this your only Gallet?
    any chance of a movement photo?

    Two pushers. I haven't had the case back off since I got it back from being serviced, but I believe it is the Venus 140. This is my first Gallet.

    Thanks for all of the comments!
