    Gallet Clamshell Booklets

    Hello all.

    Some days ago I realized that, according to this Gallet Clamshell advertisement, in 1939 there were booklets with the "complete waterproof Multichron line".

    Perhaps some of these booklets still survive...
    Do anyone knows anything about them?
    Anyone has ever seen one of these Gallet Clamshell booklets?
    If anyone could show an example of these booklets would be very interesting.
    If they still exist, they are horological history.
    Thanks in advance for any collaboration!

    Hi Tucayjordan,
    I was meaning to respond to your question on the Gallet facebook page. I suppose the time to do so is now!

    I have never seen them. Do they exist? Probably, but I'm not holding out too much hope that we'll ever see them.
    There is a thread that WatchFred started that began with discussing the Excelsior Park movements, but somehow became a posting of all available EP documentation. Here it is:
