Description

This is an automatically translated text.
Auricoste has always been in adequacy with the market of the military watch, but it is around 1950 that the French army selects Auricoste for its model type xx.

The xx type meets a very demanding specification from the Ministry of the Army.

-A black dial with two counters, capable of timing at least 30 minutes.

-the resistance to 300 start/stop/reset cycles of the chronograph.

-an accuracy of no more than 8 seconds/day.

-A power reserve of over 35 hours.

-luminescent hands and indexes.

-a diameter of 38mn.

-a return in flight function.

The proposed model of 1950 answers of course all these criteria. A steel case with a diameter of 38mn, grooved rotating bezel. The movement is mechanical with manual winding with column wheel and Fly Back function (the user resets his chronograph with a single push of the button).

Military watches have a particularly high price, very sought after by collectors, they are rare on sale.
