GALLET FLYING OFFICER 1940s WORLD TIME RADIUM DIAL CLAMSHELL CASE VENUS 150 RAREGallet
For auction is a 1940s Gallet Flying Officer Clamshell manual winding Venus 150 with tropical cream dial with radium numerals in a stainless steel 34.5mm case. By looks alone this is one of the most beautiful Flying Officers ever; the faceted lug clamshell case is a high point in the watchmaking art. These were intended for military use by important people, namely Officers, Commanders, people of rank. Though I have no idea the exact life of this particular Flying Officer what is clear is how lovely the condition is. The sand colored dial patina is exceptional...it has a look that just can't be replicated in a satisfactory manner. This is one to grab and put away.
