This collection of self-winding watches was originally designed in the 1950s for the French Naval Air Army, and that pedigree is clearly evident in the rugged yet elegant styling and air of powerful refinement. The Type XX is a welcome return to the Breguet collection.
The comfortably substantial case comes in 18K rose gold, stainless steel or titanium, and dial colors in blackened rhodium black or slate grey. The 42 millimeter case size is a satisfying presence on the wrist. Each dial features Arabic numeral markers, chronograph counters and date indicator. Type XX watches are accented with supple leather or stainless steel straps.
