Catalogue Note

Breguet started producing the 'Type XX' around 1954 and it became its most sought after post-war aviator's wristwatch. The chronograph has the special fly-back feature. Referred to as the 'retour en vol' by the French Air Force, this enabled pilots to reset the chronograph and restart immediately by the use of a single pusher.
