Created by Louis-Abraham Breguet in 1775, Breguet is a legendary name in the watchmaking industry. Certainly because of the dozens of breakthrough innovations that the brand invented and also maybe because its clients were as famous as; Marie-Antoinette, Louis XV, Louis XVI, Napoleon, George Washington and even Poutine today…

Here is one of the most iconic of the Breguet wristwatches, the Type 20 chronograph. Ordered to many brands by the French air force from 1950 to 1980, the Type 20 chronographs were suposed to be around 38mm, have a black dial and be equipped with a flyback movement. While this particular example is a civilian version of the chronograph, it is the rarest as Breguet was the brand that produced the few, it is also in my opinion the most beautiful and with its extract of archive signed by the descendant of Louis-Abraham Breguet a definite addition to anyone’s collection.
