In the 1950s, the French navy was in need of supremely accurate watches. Breguet was happy to comply and designed the XX watch. With its simple styling and clear, easy to read numbers, it was perfect for the busy naval officer. With either a Transatlantique or Aeronavale design, it fulfilled its purpose in the French navy.
The House of Breguet released a civilian version that included a self-winding movement. It maintained popularity for many years. The XXI and XXII were later created, based on the original greatness of the XX. The main difference between the Breguet Type XX XXI XXII watches is the case size. All three watches continue in the tradition of the naval XX, maintaining perfect time, all the time.
It is no wonder that Breguet was selected to produce these watches. Breguet timepieces have been known for their precision and quality for over two centuries. Since the founding of the company in 1775, every watch produced by the Breguet Company has been unmatched in its incredible workmanship. Every possible attention is paid to the intricate inner works of each and every watch.
Breguet luxury watches will continue to be some of the most popular timepieces sold today. Their amazing craftsmanship is seen in every watch in the XX, XXI and XXII series. The precision of the French navy is always available for the public.
