Breguet enriches its historical collection with a 1960s Type XX chronograph

The Breguet Museum and its President, Marc A. Hayek, are delighted to announce the acquisition of a superb 1967 Type XX chronograph. This remarkably well-preserved timepiece serves as a reminder of Breguet’s deep involvement in the field of aviation, a relationship that has given rise to the Type XX contemporary watch collection. It went under the hammer in New York on Thursday in New York, at a Phillips auction dedicated to 50 iconic 20th century models.
