Our opinion: The Type XX is a legendary watch that was used by the French army with its particular movement with its return to "flyback" flight, which was used to calculate the launch of bombs in aviation. This is the version just after the XX military type with its more modern winder and its more readable bezel. The Breguet logo now appears on this chrono with 2 counters from around the 60s. Very rare collector's item 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 piece in the making.
