If you know me you know that I love this new Gallet Chronograph but I also love this helpful infographic complete with about 500 arrows, seventy labels, and a paragraph of text. This thing has a rattrapante chrono (split seconds), a timezone bezel, and big date and looks like a cross between a Jaeger-LeCoultre and a watch one of the Thunderbirds would wear.
Here’s the bad news:
Stainless steel – $19,500 (normal retail: $32,500)
18k yellow gold – $39,900 (normal retail: $66,500)
18k white gold – $41,250 (normal retail: $68,750)
18k red gold – $42,750 (normal retail: $71,250)
950 platinum – $89,700 (normal retail: $149,500)
However, these guys are giving some of the proceeds to the NAWCC, one of my favorite unknown organizations, so I guess $19,500 is fine. See – this is how philanthropy is done: you offer a watch as a special deal with a worthy cause, everyone gets helped, and it doesn’t look like rich people patting other rich people on the back. Anyway, if I find a spare $19,500 lying around I’ll pick one up. You?
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
