Wow, this went in a flash for more than a pretty penny!
Awesome strap pairing though
Multichron with valjoux 72
Very nice! Did you recently pick this up?
Thank you, no I have owned this for a while!
Did you see a similar sold recently, if so can you share? I would like to know a roughly value of these.
unfortunately, I haven't one come up for sale as of late. that's why i was curious whether you had recently purchased it haha.
yeah not sure how to value these really! i'd say priceless
the two multichron 12Hs i've seen was the Hodinkee one that sold recently and the Jim Clark listed on Bulang & Sons but both have EP movements.
yours is in lovely condition!
A great dial, movement/case and 37mm size makes for a nice pkg. $6k......starting to get up there with the big boys.
Mine has the EP4 at 37mm
and a much better case back.
Love the strap combo on the second pic!
Yes the size at 37mm is great and with the EP and val72 movements it really is a great composition. But this is not a 6k watch IMO, rather the half I would think.
Clean watches like yours are hard to come by. I’m not sure about $3k. I’d peg it around $4k ...
You probably are right, I’m not that in to Gallet prices actually.
And mine is not perfect, there is a stain at the base scale at 2 o’clock and something below the logo. But I would sell it for 4k any day!
Actually ... the blemishes are gonna knock it back to your number. Did not see those.
Had an interesting catch recently . . .
First, two seller images that caught my eye:
(I guess we caught each other )
Under some lighting angles, the luminous material looks off-white, but actually it is a pale mint-green.
This watch, for it's age, has the least amount of wear of any of the other vintage watches in my collection. This is MC 12H #4 for me.
The facets are razor sharp:
Please excuse the leftover (very light) metal polish!
Last one for now. I would not want to overdue it.
Movement is an unsigned EP40-68 and there is no JXR stamp.
The previous owner is from the UK and he bought the watch in Germany some years ago and did not wear it.
Edit: Turns out that what appeared to be light scratches on the ring that surrounds the crystal in the seller's photos . . . was dirt!
Not my best picture, but here’s my late 70s Multichron pilot.
A couple Gallets entered my collection recently - a valjoux 72C powered Multichron Calendar (from an OF member) and an Excelsior Park 40-68 powered Multichron 12. I suspect these won’t be my last Gallets..
If you have two already, you're probably hooked. ;-)
Shortly after I purchased the near-pristine champagne dialed MC-12H above with blued mint-lumed hands and mint-lumed dial, the seller let me know that he had one more MC 12H that he had not listed as yet . . . and would I be interested?
A couple of his photos . . .
Could I have said: "No, that is one ugly watch and I have no interest in purchasing it whatsoever!"?
Here it is on my wrist before sending it off to RGM for a full service.
It was very stiff as if the lubrication was long dried out. It, like the one before it, obviously spent a lot of time in a safe or in a drawer.
More photos when it returns.
At this point I have six Gallet watches in my collection . . .
A 1916 Gallet Electa trench watch.
One MC-45 M Snow White seen a couple days ago in the WRUW Today thread.
And four MC 12H watches including a "Jim Clark" EP 40-68 watch, an EP 40-68 Evil Snow White and the above two, each also housing an EP 40-68.
