  • Catalogue Essay

    As mentioned in the previous lot description, several brands answered the call to produce the military watch including Mathey-Tissot. In fact, the firm Breguet subcontracted the production of their Type XX to Mathey-Tissot, and both examples look exceedingly similar. While the majority of the Mathey-Tissot production was for Breguet, it is believed there are approximately 50 known examples with the brand’s own signature possibly made for the civilian market.

    The present example is in lovely condition and features the three register dial type with dials for constant seconds, 12-hour register and 30-minute register. The watch has been well-maintained throughout its life, and while the case may have been polished in the past, it retains it masculine appeal, and strong proportions with distinct beveled lugs. This is an opportunity for collectors of military watches to own one of the most rare examples.
