Type 20 Vintage Diver
For auction is a Mathey-Tissot Type 20 Aeronavale vintage Valjoux 230 flyback chronograph sterile caseback. The French Air Force wanted to provide its pilots with the best timekeeping. They came up with the Type 20 specification. A few companies made Type 20 watches in limited quantities. Mathey-Tissot was an important player in the production of the Type 20, producing watches under their own name and for others [Breguet]. Truly one of the rarest and most desired of all the vintage pilots chronographs, the Type 20 exudes masculine functional design from every angle. This sterile case (no military markings) is extremely rare to find in an incredible condition.
