Regular price $0.69 Sale

FOR SALE IS A SUPER RARE MID 60s GALCO BY GALLET SKIN-DIVER IN SUPERB NEAR MINT CONDITION. 

  • CASE: SLEEK AND SEXY OVERSIZED SKIN-DIVER CASE MEASURING A NICE 38mm ACROSS CASE NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 47.5 mm LUG TO LUG. THIS THING LOOKS LIKE IT NEVER LEFT THE DISPLAY BOX. SUPER CRISP CONDITION WITH NO SIGNS OF WEAR. I LOVE THOSE LONG THIN LUGS WITH THE FACETS ON THE INSIDES VERY REMINISCENT OF THE STYLE USED BY OLLECH AND WAJS. AND THAT BEZEL....WOW WOW WOW. IT'S SO BRILLIANT AND GLOSSY BLACK, IT ALMOST HURTS TO LOOK AT IT. THE BEZEL ROTATES WITH THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF FRICTION. THIS IS SUCH A FANTASTIC WEARING PIECE. WITH THAT THIN BEZEL/WIDE DIAL AND LONG LUG TO LUG, THIS ONE REALLY WEARS MORE LIKE A 39-40mm PIECE. 
  • DIAL: WOWZA, THIS DIAL IS SOMETHING SPECIAL. THAT SEMI-MATTE BLACK DIAL IS SUPER SMOOTH. BUT, IT'S REALLY ALL ABOUT THOSE LUME FILLED MARKERS, RIGHT? I MEAN JUST LOOK AT THOSE THINGS. SUCH A KILLER LOOK WITH THOSE PIZZA SLICE STEEL MARKERS FILLED WITH TRITIUM AND THOSE FAT TRAPEZOIDAL 12/3/6/9 MARKERS WITH THE ARABIC NUMERALS SURROUNDED BY CREAMY LUME. SPEAKING OF LUME, LOOK AT THAT CLASSIC BROAD ARROW DIVER HANDSET WITH THE TRITIUM MATCHING PERFECTLY WITH THAT ON THE DIAL. WITH JUST 2 LINES OF TEXT, THERE IS NO SUPERFLUOUS WASTED SPACE ON THIS PERFECT DIAL. THE RED TIPPED SECONDS HAND IS A FUN TOUCH 
  • MOVEMENT: THIS SKIN-DIVER RUNS ON A 17J A.SCHILD HANDWOUND ENGINE.  IT RUNS BUTTER SMOOTH AND KEEPS EXCELLENT TIME. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN, BUT THIS ONE IS RUNNING LIKE A CHAMP.  

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A MEGA COOL TROPIC STYLE RUBBER STRAP WHICH LOOKS WICKED . GALLET WAS ONE OF THE SEMINAL CHRONOGRAPH MANUFACTURERS OF THE 50s and 60s WITH MODELS THAT ARE ALL HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER. THEY MADE VERY FEW DIVERS, AND THIS GALCO SKIN-DIVER WAS ONE OF THEIR SUPER COOL OFFERINGS FROM THEIR GOLDEN ERA. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A TOTAL SAFE QUEEN WITH A TON OF LUMETASTIC CHARM, THIS IS YOUR GAL...OR MIGHT I SAY "GALCO" RIGHT HERE.
