Commissioned for the French armed forces (in particular the air force at the beginning) and developed in the 1950s, the Dodane Type 21 was distributed until the end of the 1970s. This example is equipped with a Valjoux 222 manual winding movement with flyback function, and a 38 mm stainless steel case with rotating bezel. This timepiece is mounted on a quality leather strap with pin buckle. We believe the original issue date is 1969, as the case back has several fg engravings, fg meaning end of warranty, when a review of its operation would be necessary and probably set according to the intensity of use (e.g., a fighter pilot's watch). Unusually, this Type 21 has several, indicating that it has been in service for a dozen years. The first (usually two years after issue) is 1971, followed by 1974, 1977, 1979 and 1981. Given the estimated use of this watch, it remains in very good original condition and would make an excellent addition to a number of collections, especially those with an aviation or military theme.
