Breguet Type Xxi Chronograph Launched Titanium Version
At the Baselworld 2011 Baselworld, Breguet launched the new XXI watch. The watch uses a Tier 2 titanium case for the first time, and the new vivid color scheme is also bright.
Back in history, the Breguet TYPE XX series was originally a chronograph watch specially developed for the French navy air combat forces in the 1950s. Today, this series of chronographs has developed into two main series of TYPE XX and TYPE XXI. The main difference between the two sub-series is that TYPE XX is a traditional three-eye chronograph, while TYPE XXI integrates the chronograph minute and second hands into the center of the dial and adds a 24-hour display function.
Despite several innovations, the watch still retains the original classic flyback function. The technical speciality is that the mechanical gear of the automatic winding has a flyback function, that is, pressing the corresponding button to reset the chronograph to zero and start it immediately. This specially customized function for aviation can allow the countdown timer to be reset to restart the countdown immediately with a single simple operation to meet the needs of the flight search mode.
The new watch uses a 42mm diameter design. Like other Breguet watches, the side of the new watch case also has a fine frame pit pattern. Comes with a black unidirectional rotating bezel made of polished titanium. The matte black dial bears the Breguet signature with embossed digital scales. The power reserve display at 12 o’clock, the 24-hour display at 3 o’clock, the 12-hour totalizer and calendar window at 6 o’clock, and the small seconds at 9 o’clock. The red chronograph seconds and minute hands are in the center.
The watch is equipped with Cal.584Q / 1 automatic winding movement, and the flyback function can be realized by the 4 o’clock button. The movement is equipped with 25 jewel bearings. With a 45-hour power reserve.
