Bao Lai Launches The First Type Xxi Platinum Flyback Chronograph, Reiterates Its Commitment And Support For Only Watch

On November 7, 2015, the biennial Only Watch charity auction will be held in Geneva. This auction will be jointly organized by the Monaco Anti-Dystrophy Association and the Monaco Yacht Show. On this occasion, Breguet and its president and CEO Marc A. Hayek specially designed a unique timepiece donation auction for Duchenne muscular dystrophy medical research, reaffirming its commitment and support for the Only Watch charity project .
   This is Breguet’s first Type XXI platinum chronograph. After the Monaco Yacht Show (September 23-26) at the end of September, this watch will set foot in Hong Kong with Only Watch (October 2-5) Day), Beijing (October 9-12), New York (October 17-20) and London (October 24-27) global tour tours, and finally return to Geneva on the eve of the auction .
   Back in history, the first Breguet chronograph was released in 1935. Breguet specially tailored the first batch of Type XX watches for the French military. From 1954 to the 1970s, the French Air Force and Navy were supplied as standard equipment, and they were highly sought after by pilots. Called by this passion, several years later, Breguet released a more modern civilian version.
   Breguet’s Ref. 3813 Type XXI chronograph launched for Only Watch 2015 draws inspiration from the original collection, with a very retro-looking appearance, while meeting the brand’s modern mechanical watchmaking standards. This watch features a 50-year-old model and Ref. 3810 Transatlantique’s unique flyback timing function. This is also the first time the 584Q / 1 self-winding movement has been fitted with a platinum case. The diameter of the case is 42mm and the bi-directional rotating bezel design is sturdy and reliable, which will surely attract more watch attention.
   The matte gray dial is delicately finished, and the vintage-toned Breguet Arabic numerals are coated with Luminescen fluorescent layers. This watch perfectly combines vintage style with superb technology, and lives up to the historical glory of the legendary series. The Breguet Ref. 3813 Type XXI platinum chronograph is equipped with a vintage calfskin strap, which will be auctioned together with a special watch box, which also includes a “unique piece” identification certificate.
