Auricost has a long relationship with the French Navy. This model is the Type 20 delivered to the French Air Force. The production period is from August 1954 to March 1955, and it is said that the number of production is about 2000 pieces. At that time, the French army carried out regular inspections of the watch and stamped the warranty period on the back cover. That is the number that starts with FG. Looking at this individual, we can see that it was used under the control of the French Army from its delivery in 1954 to 1982. The dial is in good condition with no noticeable scratches or stains. The middle case is chrome-plated brass, and although some peeling of the plating can be seen, it is a rare individual with the original plating remaining. The movement installed in this model is Cal.2040 (Lemania Cal.15TL), but the flyback function, which is the specification of Type 20, has been added. It has a thick and pottery form, and the dial design is wonderful. The movement is equipped with a seismic device and is in a beautiful state, and there is no problem with the chronograph function and flyback function. Handing over after disassembly and cleaning.
