Up for your viewing pleasure is this absolutely stunning Vintage Gallet Stainless Steel Pre Jim Clark Tropical Chronograph. The 37.5mm stainless steel is on great condition and is totally unpolished. The tropical brown has what I'm calling a "stardust" patina that I have yet to see on another Gallet chronograph. The Excelsior Park manual wind movement is running and keeping accurate time. All chronograph functions work and reset properly (please note the sweep hand resets about half a mm to the left). The case and caseback are fully marked and stamped.
