A unique entertainment of historical civilian pilot watches.
Once again, BREGUET will participate in one of the most important watch events this year, and only observe 2021. A key charity auction organized by Monegasque Accound, which organizes the organization of muscle malnutrition and very expectation in international tabernism. Only by observing the unique donation of watching the brand, it is usually created for this occasion. Highly attractive watch. After this year’s 2019 version of the military type 20 history resembles, Breguet has created another retro inductance of the pilot watch that is symbolized, which is based on civilian BREGUET XX REF. 2065ST.
The well-known watch enthusiasts, Breguet has been involved in the design for aviation. The name BREGUET also refers to the other side of the family and participates in aviation again. In fact, Breguet offers several time gauges for the US Air Force, in 1922, Sociétéd’aviation Louis Breguet, founded by Abraham-Louis Breguet. In the early 1950s, the French Ministry of Defense raised the norm in order to purchase timer watches for its air force to be called 20. These watches are referred to as an XX type when involving civilian models. Type 20 or XX type has a pilot watch for anti-excited timecutical tables, but some important differences on design.
The watch of BREGUET is only two years ago. The observation is inspired by the 20 models of early military version, with grooves and smooth rotating baffles, pear crowns, bread rolls, and classic counters, dimensions and styles. Although the base is relatively close, this year, BREGUET has adjusted a watch, which is related to the XX type early civilian model. This means several changes in the watch, at least in my book, more attractive than before. BREGUET TYPE XX FOR ONLY WATCH 2021
The case of modeling after the original watch is made of brush steel, with a measure of 38.30 mm, still having a circular lug, has a polished bevel. What is the change in the baffle, which uses a profile of the gap, and now has a 12-hour scale, of which the triangular pointer is calculated. Moreover, the crown is flat. Finally, the tightening of the thread is used to use a specific tag.
The dials and hands have been updated, and the retro civilian XX model is compliant again. The base is still bronze-colored plating appearance, with large glowing arabic numbers. Big eyes with glow hands and markers for 30 minutes, and now have core hands with syringe profiles. For the rest, only this type of XX that observes 2021 is almost 1: 1 copy of a historical watch.
In this case, the desire of the same accuracy is found, because this unique piece is powered by the Valjoux 235, which is the Valjoux 222 Direct Derivatives used in the 1950s and the early 1960s. Hand-wound diameter. This hand-wound column wheel meter movement has been restored and returned through BROGUET, of course, with iconic “Retour En Vol” or reactive function, and it will never be a real XX Pilot’s chronograph.
Only the unique BREGUET type XX for observing 2021 is equipped with a calf belt with steel buckle and is provided in aircraft wing box.
