Hi all,
up for sale today my Adanac Marathon Gallet Navigator from first issue dating february 1986.

In the middle eighties, both the USAF and Canadian Armed Force issued these tough looking Adanac watches to their service members. Adanac is Canada spelled backward and was produced in the joint contract between Gallet and Marathon. The watch has an unusual 0-11 marked bidirectional bezel, which makes it look like a hybrid of diver's and pilot's watches. Both the United State air force and the Canadian Armed Forces issued the Adanac watches in the late 1980's. The Adanac possesses an asymmetrical 43 mm massive ssteel swiss case made by Gallet with a screw-down crown, has fixed bars, and is water resistant to 660 feet, which qualifies this watch as a military diver's watch although it seems to have been issued more commonly to aircrews. The dial maintains 24-hour markings commonly found on many military watches. The hour and minute hands have applied tritium luminous material as do the hour indexes on the dial and the zero position on the bezel are also tritium coated. The Adanac uses a Swiss made quartz Harley Ronda 373 movement and there is a separate latch (which you can open with a coin) for replacing batteries.

The asymmetrical case is in wonderful condition showing the original factory bead blasted finishing and sharp case lines. The bezel is free from any major blemishes showing light patina and some superficial scratches.
The watch will be supplied on a brand new admiralty grey G10 Phoenix nato strap. The case back shows all the correct Govt. serial numbers and NATO contract numbers;

Original dial shows evident blemishes between 6 and 9, as you can easily see checking out pics, but despite this remains fully readable. The tritium lume dots at the end of each hour marker and the tritium hands remain fully intact and have achieved a nice golden patina. Original glass has some scratches.
Quartz movement has been serviced a couple of years ago and the watch is running at spec and is in perfect working condition.

Ask me for any doubt about the watch. I will reply as fast as possible: bardamu@libero.it

Watch and me are located in Rome, Italy. Due to dial blemishes, I'm asking 360 euros shipped everywhere in the EU with tracking code. Overseas transactions are welcome with shipping costs and modality to be decided with buyer.
Bank wire or paypal FF (plus 4%). Face to face in Rome possible.

I already sold a watch here on CT, but plenty of references available from Omegaforums, italian forum Orologi & Passioni and ebay, if needed.
Thanks all for the attention and thanks Jeff and CT for the space.
Cheers, Alessandro
