This rare double-signed Gallet-Racine ÒDecimalÓ chronograph was produced in the 1950s as part of the MultiChron family in order to properly time sporting events, medical examinations or other scientific experiments. On this watch, the outer-scale (in red) helps the wearer divide time in to 1/100s of a minute, and not the normal 1/60s.
Inside, the watch houses the celebrated EP4 (Excelsior Park) movement. On the outside, we have an original, mint, very uncommon double-signed, silver sunburst dial with gorgeous blued hands. The Racine watch company was formed a cousin of the Gallet brothers, and they often worked together to bring watches to markets other than Switzerland (particularly, the US). The Decimal model was made in 36, 37, and 38mm sizes – this example here is the oversized 38mm case. The case is mint and unpolished. They don’t come much nicer than this!
