About the Brand
Gallet is a historical Swiss watch manufacturer. The company was founded in 1466, making it the oldest timepiece maker in the world. During the 20th century Gallet specialized in military timepieces with their widely successful MultiChron chronograph. A variation of the MultiChron called the Flight Officer was issued to the United States Air Force during Harry S. Truman's presidency. President Truman was so amused by this timepiece that he wore one himself.
Gallet is one of the last privately owned Swiss watch manufacturers along with Patek Philippe and Rolex. It is also one of the last companies to manufacture its movements in-house. During the past decades the company has shifted its production line to include civilian and everyday timepieces instead of just focusing on professional and tool watches like the MultiChron and the Flight Officer.
