“Back in the 1950s, the French Naval Air Army actually commissioned Breguet (and a few other companies) to create a timepiece for the organisation. The watches were required to meet a few pre-requisites, such as the need to have a chronograph with a “retour-en-vol” or flyback function, a power reserve greater than 35 hours, luminescent applications on hand and dial, as well as an accuracy of around 8 seconds per day. Some brands came and went, but Breguet is one of the brands that have managed to survive throughout these years and they have created the Type XX (as well as the Type XXI, and the Type XXII) as homages to the original watches that they had manufactured in the past.”
