Gallet, the parent company of Racine, specialized in producing waterproof chronographs. Their prowess attracted the notice of the British military, who commissioned them to create chronographs in 1916. Demand for their watches grew in the worldwide market, and Gallet began importing chronographs for the U.S. military under the name Racine from 1924 to 1940 (Enicar, an enigram of Racine, was established by a Gallet cousin).
The present watch bears a tachometer on the dial, meant to measure speed and distance. Additionally, it also features a telemeter for measuring distance from an explosion or thunder. As all Racine watches were manufactured by Gallet, they provide all the reliability of Gallet at a slightly more competitive price point.
