We are currently enjoying wearing and offering you guys some beautiful, quirky and cool chronos. This example bears the name ‘National Park’ on the dial, a name that our research indicates was used by Gallet for some of their watches – especially military chronographs. This mid-20th century watch’s dial has changed over the years to a tropical purple/blue shade that lends this it a cool vibe for the summer months. The pump pushers lend the watch a contemporary air and add to its presence on the wrist. The outer track is a not so often seen pulsation scale timer. The watch also benefits from a thirty-minute chronograph stopwatch alongside a running seconds sub-dial. The case is a steel alloy and there are some small areas of rubbing evident – in our minds, this adds to the patina and character of the watch! The watch has been fully checked by our watchmaker and will come on a steel straight endlink ‘beads of rice’ bracelet.
The pulsation scale was used by doctors and medical professionals to quickly calculate a patient’s pulse. To calculate heart rate the doctor would traditionally need to count your pulse and count to ‘15’ and then multiply the number of pulses by four. This scale allowed the doctor to start the chronograph, count 15 ‘pulses’ then stop the chrono and take the reading – no need for any multiplying!
