Created for the bienneial Only Watch charity auction which is now about 3 weeks away (Nov 7), this Breguet Type XXI flyback chronograph is cased in platinum and, for the first time, fitted with a dark grey dial accented with vintage-looking numerals and hands.
Designed in the 1950s for the French naval air army, the Type XX went out of production for many decades only to return in 1995. The 39mm Type XX is today joined in the collection by the Type XXI (produced only in rose gold or steel in 42mm case) and the 44mm Type XXII. This one-off version of the Type XXI really has me wanting!
There are now close to 50 one-of-a-kind timepieces that will be offered at Only Watch 2015 on November 7, though many of them are ho-hum, but I’ve reviewed all of the most notable pieces, which you can browse through here. Most exciting is the “to die for” Patek Philippe Ref 5016 Grand Complication which is cased in steel and has a blue enamel dial, which you should definitely check out if you haven’t see it yet>>>
