Designed in the 1950s for the French naval air arm, the Type XX returns to the Breguet collection in a civilian version fitted with a self-winding movement.
Its chronograph, however, retains the fly-back function needed for flying search patterns. Its uncompromising looks and strong construction have made the Type XX popular among those seeking an original and technical sports watch.
Breguet makes Type XX watches in two versions: the Aeronavale and the Transatlantique, with date indication. The Type XXI design features a fly-back minute totaliser at centre and a 24-hour time display. Versions of the Transatlantique are also made for women who appreciate technical elegance.
