    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.

    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!

    Had an interesting catch recently . . .

    First, two seller images that caught my eye:

    (I guess we caught each other ;) )

    Snap2.jpg

    Snap3.jpg

    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:

    MC12-H-Champagne-041721-4.jpg

    Please excuse the leftover (very light) metal polish!

    MC12-H-Champagne-041721-3.jpg

    MC12-H-Champagne-041721-2.jpg
    Last one for now. I would not want to overdue it. :)

    MC12-H-Champagne-041721-1.jpg

    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 . . .

    IMG_20210417_190144.jpg

    IMG_20210417_190011.jpg

    Could I have said: "No, that is one ugly watch and I have no interest in purchasing it whatsoever!"? ;)

    Not hardly.

    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.

    MC12H-GR-Snow-White-051121-1.jpg

    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.
