This is a vintage c. 1971 stainless steel Breguet Type XX "Civilian" chronograph. It has a leather strap with a stainless steel tang buckle, and an acrylic crystal. It has the original winding crown with a crosshatched top, round chronograph push buttons, and there is a solid screw down case back with a serial number. The 40mm diameter three-body solid compressor case, downturned faceted thick lugs with clear bevels, and knurled bidirectional flat dark grey (aged from black) bezel with white Arabic numeral graduations every hour (and a triangle with a luminous pip at the 60). The original jet black dial has the white Breguet signature (found only on the civilian market watches), Arabic numeral hour markers with original tritium lume, and rectangular white hour indices around a white minute scale. It has steel Breguet syringe hands with luminous tritium inserts, and a center-sweep white chronograph hand with a luminous arrow tip. It has black recessed subsidiary dials with luminous white markers, Arabic numerals, and luminous steel indicators, including a running small seconds register at 9 o'clock, a 12-hour chronograph totalizer at 6 o'clock, and there is an oversize 15-minute dial at 3 o'clock with a fat propeller-style indicator with a tritium insert, and 5 tritium spoke indices. It has a 46-hour power reserve at full winding, and the 14.3mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

This Breguet Type XX "Civilian chronograph has a mechanical manual-winding Valjoux caliber 725 column wheel chronograph movement. This movement features the flyback function, which was a requirement of the original Type 20's to meet military specifications. It's rhodium plated, and it's constructed with 17 jewels, a straight-line lever escapement, a monometallic balance, and a shock-absorber device. It includes a self-compensating flat balance spring, and an index regulator. The mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vph (3 Hz).
