A local friend saw this picture in a magazine and has fallen for the watch. He asked me for any comments, but Gallet is not a brand I know at all so I thought I would turn to the people who generally find a way to help with such things - WUS. Does anyone have any experience of Gallet or this model in particular? Is it something he will be able to find easily?



Thanks in advance.

The brand is unknown to me as well, all I can tell for sure is that the watch houses a Valjoux/Eta 7750 movement ;-)

If that watch appeals to your friend, he might be as well interested in the "German Military" brand - a small but very succesful business. The watches are highly configurable you can have all kinds of dials, hands, with or without company logo and such. The owner - Mr. Smirnov - is a nice guy to talk to, and makes the watch the way you want. Prices are also very good. I don't think there is an english website, you might want to check it out nonethelss:
