We can hope for a black dial - it would be a killer

Does anyone know if producing a Valjoux 235 in larger amounts is feasible?
A nice competitor to the Blancpain Air Command

Only Watch has started to show this yearโ€™s pieces unique, and this Breguet Type 20 got me almost a stroke!!! If this is any indication of what we may see as a successor to the discontinued Type XX next year, 2020 will be the year of Breguet! All photos cr...  

Love everything about it except...

The crown. It's just a bit over the top and seems out of place on the watch. I'm not an expert on Breguet Type XXs, is there a precedent somewhere in the history of the Type XX for such a crown?

Answered my own question

Apparently this is an exact re-edition of the original Type 20, crown included. Obviously showing my ignorance of the Type 20.

Aviation gloves are thick, you need a crown like that for them

Back when cockpits were cold, and watches like this were important to getting home safely.

Right, I realized the rationale behind the crown

Same thing with the IWC Big Pilot, I just didn't realize the original Type 20 had such a crown. The photos I've seen of Type 20s (or probably XXs) had a more conventional crown.

The recent development within the industry is an absolute shame! Historical brands become sluggish and unimaginative while independants start to rise...

Reissue after reissue and not even trying to give them a modern touch! Just grabbing off some cash of the vintage hype.

In this case โ˜๏ธ

Beautiful Breguet, I love the dial.

At 38,3 mm must feel great on the wrist. Vte

Wow what a stunning piece!

 By: Makilla : July 2nd, 2019-01:51
I hope they do produce a ltd Edition steel piece with a black dial at some point. That would be a dream to own ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ Laurent

Love the lugs with polished bevel, contrasting with brushed finish of caseband

 By: hoseachandra : July 2nd, 2019-01:54
Too bad the chronograph only for 30 minutes, which not too useful compared to 12 hour chrono. Still, the dial and case size is perfect. Hopefully they release regular edition in black or blue dial. Might tempt me to replace my IWC pilot 3706.

Perfect! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
