    FULL HISTORY OF GALLET FAMILY FROM 1466-2009 AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS OFFER

GALLET WAS FAMOUS FOR CHRONOGRAPHS AND TIMERS FROM 1910 THROUGH WW1 AND THROUGH WWII AND INTO KOREA & VIETNAM:

When the worldwide economic downturn of the 1930’s caused international trade to plunge by as much as two-thirds, it suddenly became unprofitable for the Gallet Company to continue production of many of its recently established brands. Gallet chose instead, to consolidate its efforts back into its primary area of expertise, that of the manufacture of high quality professional-use timepieces. Under the family name, the Gallet Company continued to flourish by providing hand-held timers and chronograph wristwatches to allied military and industrial clients during the years leading up to and through World War II.

1918 – Jeanneret-Brehm begins manufacturing under the company name Excelsior Park. Deriving the name from Jenneret-Brehm’s previously registered “Excelsior” trademark, the English variation of the French word for “park” is utilized at the prompting of Gallet to support the collaborative efforts of the two companies in their marketing focus on the American consumer.

Beginning in the 1920's, Excelsior Park concentrates exclusively on the stopwatches and chronographs.

In 1921 a patent concerning a bolt, independent of the push-piece crown for starting timing, allowing the stopping of the hand, is filed.

On  May 24th, 1922, Excelsior Park patents a small housing inside a movement to place spare parts. That will become also a kind of trademark, making possible instantaneously to recognize an Excelsior Park movement.
