    1960s if the movement is a Landeron 149 which I think is within the bounds of possibility.

    If I am right your chronograph was modeled after the "1st generation" of a "Flying Officer", a watch former US president Harry S. Truman was wearing. If amde in the 1960s it would belong to what we know as the "3rd generation" . This model is near identical in design but updated with a larger case and completely black dial.

    When the movement has not been serviced for a long time you should get it serviced, it is worth the efforts.
    Kind regards

    In addition to what Mike said, you may also try to contact Gallet directly. They have been very helpful in the past to other members looking for information on their watches. Contact them through their web site here: Gallet Watch Company - Support

    The Flying Officer's are very desirable watches and you found a real gem there. Congratulations!
