Since 1854, Auricoste is intimately linked with the French « Aero-Navale ». Being one of the official suppliers of measurements instruments, marine chronometer or wristwatches the brand has always designed watches with reliability and beauty in mind. In the 1950s when the French air force ordered a new watch with flyback ability Auricoste was one of the brands to be chosen, and delivered the Type 20, their most famous watch. Auricoste still remains today one of the suppliers of the French Army, having recently re-equiped the « Charles de Gaulle » Aircraft Carrier.

Here is the rarest Type 20, the second generation from the late sixties, it has a wonderful black glossy dial with gilt writings, beautiful radium filled hands and a 24H bezel. It is believed that only 2500 pieces were produced and that only 500 were civilian versions like this one.  This is a real collector.
