In homage to both watchmaking and aviation, Breguet reissues a unique version of its Type 20 pilot chronograph from the fifties in a form that is very faithful to the original. In the early fifties, the French Ministry of Defense drew up specifications with a view to purchasing chronograph wristwatches for its Air Force, to be known as Type 20. Drawing on its experience in this area, Breguet expressed its interest and designed a model that was quickly approved by the authorities.
