  • Catalogue Essay

    Breguet originally designed Type XX watches for the French army in the 1950s. In 1995, Breguet reintroduced a flyback chronograph series for the general public, which was inspired by the watches they produced over 60 years ago for military use. The present watch is powered by caliber 582 and is proudly displayed through a sapphire glazed display back for the viewer’s pleasure.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1775

    Established in 1775 by Abraham Louis Breguet, widely considered the greatest watchmaker of all time, the storied brand continues to thrive in the modern era, creating exceptional high-end watches as the Swatch Group's premier prestige brand. Some of the most important and lasting inventions in watchmaking are attributed to Abraham Louis Breguet, including the tourbillon, shock resistance and the use of hammers and gongs employed in nearly all minute repeating watches made since.

    Eighteenth and nineteenth century Breguet pocketwatches are especially sought-after by collectors, and many of them were made for the elite of European society, including Napoléon and Marie Antoinette. Key wristwatches from the twentieth century include oversized dress watches, two-register chronographs, triple calendars and Type XX aviator's chronographs made for the French military and civilians.
