Everything that makes a vintage watch valuable

1. a Valjoux 72 hand wound calibre with column wheel
2. a big screw back case
3. round buttons
4. a perfect original tri-compax dial

Beautiful and super rare Gallet Multicron 12 in a rare oversized screw back case, manual wind chronograph pre Daytona.

Powered by the groundbreaking Valjoux calibre 72. Coveted by serious collectors, only a limited number of these highly complex timepieces were produced, as they were too expensive for the average consumer to afford.

These post 1950 Gallet Multicron shares many of the same components as the famous Rolex "pre-Daytona" version, valued at nearly 50,000 dollars.

While original production records have yet to surface, many experts believe the Rolex version to be a collaboration between the 2 companies. This is further supported by the fact that Gallet was the primary sales channel and wholesale distributor of Valjoux movements to other Swiss watch companies up until the mid 1970s.

    It is the same watch and you bought it extremly cheap. Normal price is about 1400,- Euro. leather strap is totaly unimportand at vintage watches. Its easy to buy one of your taste between 3,- and 25,- Euro. But if you don´t want the watch, its no problem, please send it back. We will return your money. The watch was just serviced, maybe my watchmaker has the other leather strap, I can ask him, if you want?

  • The watch arrived safely. Thanks. But sellers description saying "just serviced" was untrue. It is badly in need of a service. It gains more than 5 minutes /day. To much for this watch. Not Happy.

    I am so sorry, Sometimes this happens when an old watch gets too many jolts during transportation. But it is very easy to re-regulate the watch, which only takes 1 minute. You just have to adjust the regulation at the back of the balance by one millimeter plus direction. PleaSE LOOK ON THE LAST PHOTO IN cATAWIKI; DIRECTION "F" IS FASTER; DIRECTION "S" IS SLOWLIER

    Montre rare reçue en état moyen malgré un descriptif de très bon état. Manque de photos, valeur d’expert et prix de réserve surestimé faussant un peu l’enchère. Vendeur de bon contact.

    The quality did not match the description in the auction. I have been in contact with the seller and he gave me a generous price recuction. However I paid far to much given the circumstances.
