    Here is something you dont see very often...there is a Venus 140 movement inside. Ive never heard of this brand, but I believe its a Gallet made piece. Anyone familiar with this?

    here is the movement.

    I found the following info online:

    Looks like its from 1940?

    The Multichron Regulator was introduced by Gallet in the late 20’s, specifically designed for users who needed to prioritise timing over the time of the day. Featuring only a small subdial at 12 o’clock telling the time, the rest of the dial was reserved for the chronograph function with various scales used and a minute counter at 6 o’clock. Powered by the Venus 140, Gallet acquired the exclusive rights to this movement and also provided ‘private-label’ Regulators to other brands. The example you see here today is one of those, acquired by Aristo and featuring an anonymous dial.

    You would expect AXF on that one. Are you sure its not AXF? They do look a tad similar ;)

    No apologies needed.... I just had the chart up still so it was an easy cross check. I’ve made a billion times worse errors today lol.

    There is something rather charming about this piece.
