Letter I received from Gallet describing the Watch I have listed for sale

Subject: RE: Your Gallet Watch...

Dear John L.

Thanks for sending the images of your Gallet watch.

You indeed have a very special and rare Gallet watch and quite a nice item to find. It is named the MultiChron model 30. It is called the model 30 due to its ability to records events up to 30 minutes in duration.

This particular version was provided to US Army artillery officers during World War II for measuring the relative distance of munitions blasts, hence the military specification black dial (face). This model was produced in very small quantities for this purpose and never mass distributed for general consumption. As these watches were used in combat situations, they are generally never found in this nice of condition.

You watch will function for many more decades if it is properly serviced. I recommend not using it until it is fully cleaned and re-lubricated properly. Using it with degraded oils can cause permanent damage to the delicate internal mechanism.

I personally feel that this special timepiece is worth the cost of our $650 Maintenance Package to have it serviced, especially if you plan to wear it at all. Also, if you send it to us for servicing, we would like to have our collections department photograph it for our archives and the upcoming Gallet book.

If you decide to have it serviced, respond to this email and I will provide you with an Official Service Order Number and other relevant information.

All the best,

David R. Laurence
