Hello everyone, this issue’s new pilot chronograph - SN0127, pays tribute to the classic Type XX, where XX is the Roman numeral 20. Type 20 is the military version, and Type XX is the civilian version.
In the 1950s, the French Air Force developed a series of specifications for mass procurement of military chronographs that could be worn on the wrist, calling them Type 20. There are 4 suppliers in total, the most famous of which is Breguet. Type 20 is sturdy, reliable and has a distinctive personality. It has been widely praised and sought after. Later, a civilian version was launched to meet the needs of the market. To this day, it is still enduring.
In 70 years of development, the design habit of using the outer ring to distinguish the military version from the civilian version has gradually formed. The military version uses a coin pattern ring, and the civilian version uses a 12-hour scale bezel.
The Arabic numerals and hands are covered with C3 super luminous coating, which is retro brown under normal conditions and has a green luminous effect.
The 39.5mm stainless steel case is slightly larger than the original version, adapting to the common sizes of modern watches while retaining the charm of its prototype. Equipped with a two-way rotating bezel without a ratchet structure, a 12-hour scale stainless steel ring, 11.9mm thick (mirror surface of the pot lid), paired with a khaki suede leather strap, and 100 meters waterproof.
Equipped with VK64 imported quartz chronograph movement, the button at 2 o'clock can start and stop the chronograph function, and the button at 4 o'clock can reset the chronograph.
The design and specifications of the original Type 20 from the 1950s are respectfully learned in every detail, integrating contemporary vitality and spirit into the design of the watch, paying tribute to time and history.
