Our opinion: The Type XX is a legendary watch that was used by the French army with its particular movement with "flyback" complication, which was used to calculate the launch of bombs in aviation. This is the original version of the military XX type with its pear-shaped winder and its non-graduated steel bezel. The Breguet logo does not yet appear on this chronograph with 2 counters from around the 1950s. Very rare collector's watch from Breguet which produced little of it and is highly sought after by collectors. Its auction price sets new records at almost every sale. A real historic piece watch making.
