Breguet has enjoyed an association with the aviation industry for some time, supplying the French military with the original Type XX flyback chronograph in the 1950's. Interestingly, Breguet's great great Grand Son, Louis Charles Breguet was a pioneer in the aviation field, actually founding the company that would later become Air France. Time keeping was vital to the success of their voyages as like Breguet's Marine Chronometers, the direction was often calculated using the seconds on their timepieces. The Type XXI collection brought a modern twist to the collection by offering a larger case size with a more stylised dial set up. Nonetheless, the quality of the movement was not diminished and the latest Type XXII model actually reminds purveyors just why forward thinking Breguet was and continue to be. Having pioneered the use of silicon in their movements, Breguet have attempted to combat the damage friction and abrasion does to mechanical escapements. This increase of durability also allows for an increase of frequency and in turn, accuracy. The Type XXII model is actually powered by a high frequency movement to the level where the chronograph counter actually goes full circle in a remarkable thirty seconds over the typical one minute. Led by a focus on functionality, Breguet's Type XX, XXI & XXII models are delivered in steel primarily as well as Rose Gold and even Titanium.
