A look back at the Breguet cocktail reception, where Emmanuel Breguet presented the new generation of Type XX watches in our MAIER Horloger boutique.
Manufacture Breguet was proud to unveil a redesigned line that is at once innovative, highly contemporary and rich with multiple nods to history.
Timeless Elegance: The Resurgence of Breguet's Type XX
Originally designed in the 1950s for the French Aéronavale, this collection has been revisited by Manufacture Breguet with a contemporary civilian version.
Equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement, this 42 mm steel chronograph boasts innovative features such as a silicon balance spring, bidirectional rotating bezel, and water resistance to 100 meters.
Its modern design is inspired by Breguet's rich heritage, and pays tribute to the 1100 examples delivered to the French Air Force between 1955 and 1959.
Calibre 728: The Essence of Precision and Robustness
At the heart of this reinvention lies the new caliber 728, the result of four years of development at Breguet.
Incorporating cutting-edge technologies such as a column wheel, vertical clutch and silicon balance spring, this self-winding movement offers not only a 60-hour power reserve, but also exceptional precision.
With its instantaneous "return to flight" function, this timepiece becomes a true fusion between the military heritage of the Type XX and contemporary watchmaking innovation.This complication enables an instantaneous reset to zero and a new count by simply pressing the push-buttons at 2 and 4 o'clock. This function, present since 1954, meets the needs of pilots by offering significant time savings.
