FS: Damas 1940's New Old Stock Excelsior Park Gallet $3600


This is an ultra-rare new old stock example of the outstanding Excelsior Park calibre 14J which is equivalent to the calibre 40 used by Gallet. The case is crisp, unpolished, and in like new condition with the exception of a few light scratches from case opening/closing/shelf wear. The movement is, as you would expect, pristine and we are the first watchmakers to have fully disassembled and serviced it. Being the first watchmaker to service a movement such as this from the 1940's is a rare opportunity. The Excelsior Park movements are a cut-above the rest-- details include the pivoting minute jumper with ultra-sensitive hairspring-like tension mechanism, spring orientations/cutouts engraved directly into the plate, breguet overcoil hairspring, and superb manufacturing quality down to the screw heads-- all in new old stock condition. The watch is exceptionally clean and crisp after our service and is running superbly. We hand polished every part to remove the tarnish commonly found on Excelsior Park movements to return the watch to its original finish. This is an extraordinary watch and will be a centerpiece for your vintage watch collection.
