To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the French Aéronavale, Breguet will release a new 1,000 piece limited edition Type XX chronograph.

The Type XX model was born 50 years ago, when the first 500 pieces were delivered in 1960. Like all Type XXs, the original pieces were “flyback” chronographs, and they and were inscribed on the caseback with the legend “Breguet Marine Nationale Aeronautique Navale.” Original Type XXs are now highly sought after by collectors.

The new 100th anniversary limited edition has some unusual features for a Type XX, including a black-lacquered rotating bezel with raised numerals. This limited edition will be delivered with a special presentation box and limited series certificate. The edition is limited to 1,000 numbered pieces in stainless steel with a 39mm diameter. The bezel is bi-directional, and the case is water resistant to 100 meters. The solid caseback is engraved with the official Naval Aviation centenary emblem. The dial is matte black with luminous hands and numerals. The movement is an automatic winding chronograph with flyback function, Breguet caliber 581, 13 1/4 lignes, 25 jewels, 48 hour power reserve. The strap is hand-sewn calfskin leather. The reference number for this edition is 3803ST/92/3W6.

This limited edition piece is priced at $9200, and it will be available beginning in November.

Tim,

Must have been a while back. It does look like the older Sinns. The movement is completely different but the styling....perhaps this is where Sinn got the idea for their distinctive style chrono?

I couldn't find it here, it might have been before we all escaped the Death Star... I don't remember the model number, though, it is similar. Don't know who inspired who.
