Originally introduced in 1938, the famous Gallet Flight Officer Chronograph has remained as a favourite of both military and civilian aviators for decades. Gallet Flying Officer Chronograph is the world’s first wrist watch to combine timezone calculations with elapsed time recording capabilities, housed with in an extremely durable and water resistant case.
Due to this , the Gallet Flight Officer Chronograph has always been a relatively expensive timepiece for limited military budgets.
