Breguet Type XXI 3815 in Titanium

Type XXI 3815 chronograph

While the House of Breguet is primarily known for its major influence on watchmaking and its iconic timepiece collections, the name Breguet is also associated with the world of aviation. Louis Charles Breguet, great great grandson of Abraham Louis Breguet, was one of the great pioneers in the field while the House of Breguet made a name for itself with the Type XX aviation chronographs. Today, Breguet adds to its remarkable collection with a new, decidedly sporty and modern model, the Type XXI 3815 chronograph.

This limited edition version marks a new chapter in the history of this iconic aviation chronograph. This year, the Type XXI 3815 chronograph becomes the contemporary counterpart to the previous vintage style edition, the Type XXI 3817, which was unveiled in 2016. The new model features a 42 millimeter case made of titanium, a metal known for its anti corrosive properties and lightness on the wrist With its finely fluted case-band that makes it easy to grip, this new timepiece is sporty in style, and functions, reinforced by a water resistance to 100 meters, a screw down crown, and a finish that alternates polished and satin finished surfaces. The bidirectional bezel, also made of titanium, is fitted with a contrasting black lacquered 60 minute scale, enhancing the contemporary look of this edition.

But the changes do not stop there: the Type XXI 3815 chronograph has a deep black dial whose modern character and sporty spirit are accentuated by the use of vivid colors. Available with green or orange numerals, markers and hands, all luminescent, this new dial also features a display with only two counters, with a 24 hour indicator and small seconds, placed at 3 and 9 o’clock, respectively. The minutes totaliser of the chronograph is positioned in the center, as is the seconds totaliser. A new precision minute track and a date at 6 o’clock complete this contemporary display.
