Breguet Unveils a New Type XXI Model in Titanium

The Rake inspects the new limited edition Breguet Type XXI 3815.

Architects of trailblazing mechanisms, the House of Breguet are best-known for their haute horology watchmaking, which includes the first ever tourbillion. French-Swiss watchmaking genius, Abraham-Louis Breguet, patented his mechanical coup in 1801, twenty-six years after founding the firm. The family’s contributions to telecommunications and aviation have been life-changing inventions for citizens around the world.

Precision, clarity, irresistible elegance, with an infinitely baroque style have always been celebrated characteristics of Breguet timepieces. This week, the firm have made a rare modernist move with a stripped-down, and sporty chronograph that lies within their Type XX1 collection. The 3815 timepiece marks a new chapter in the history of this iconic aviation chronograph. With a titanium case and vividly coloured lume, the new limited edition Breguet Type XXI 3815 deftly blends vintage and modern aesthetics.
