Breguet’s High Flying Chronograph

A new titanium sportswatch from the Swiss manufacture.

By Terry Christodoulou 18/06/2021

The house of Breguet may not be the first name that comes to mind when you hear the words ‘aviation chronographs’, but that’s not to say the manufacture is without history in the sky.

Louis Charles Breguet, the great-great-grandson of Abraham-Louis Breguet was a pioneer of aviation, and the brand made a name for itself with the Type XX aviation chronographs in the 1950s.

Today, the tradition continues through the sporty Type XXI 3815 Chronograph. The limited-edition timepiece features a 42mm case of titanium with its finely fluted caseband making for easy gripping and heightened athletic appeal

The watch goes beyond sporty aesthetics, with water resistance to 100 metres, a screw-down crown, bidirectional bezel (also made of titanium), and a contrasting black-lacquered 60-minute scale enhancing the watch’s functional ability.

Elsewhere the timepiece arrives with a deep-black dial with sunburst finish, while would-be purchasers have the available with green or orange numerals, markers and hands all luminescent. The new dial also features a display with only two counters, a 24-hour indicator, small seconds placed at 3 and 9 o’clock.

Away from the handsome face of the watch – the mechanical self-winding movement, the 582QA calibre, arrives with a flyback function – incorporating the latest technologies by Breguet including the silicon escapement and balance spring. The sapphire caseback reveals the movement.

The watch is strapped to the wrist via calfskin leather strap with stitching that echoes the colour of the markers chosen.

The timepiece is limited to 250 pieces per colour. $21,700
