Founded by the famous watch maker A.L Breguet and known by his name, the brand Breguet is popular all over the world for using exquisite designs and innovative technology in all its timepieces. The founder was born in Neuchatel, but acquired his fame in Paris after he studied the art of making timepieces and started making his own. On his death in 1823, all watch lovers mourned the end of this great man, but his innovations continue even today by the brand he created.
The Breguet 3880STH2SX0 model for men, belongs to the Transatlantique Type XXII Flyback 10 Hz range. Equipped with a 44 mm diametre stainless steel case back, this watch is quite sturdy and smart looking. It features a round black dial, with stainless steel hands and Arabic markers in white. The markers feature a luminous fill allowing you to read time even in dim light or total darkness. A uni-directional rotating bezel is seen mounted on the case. A matching stainless steel bracelet makes this watch highly appealing to men. The bracelet is very comfortable and is equipped with a deployant clasp, which makes wearing and removing the watch easy, while also ensuring that it remains safely secured to your hand when worn.
The Breguet 3880STH2SX0 model features three sub-dials. At the 3 o’clock position you will find a 24 hour sub-dial that tells you the difference between AM and PM. The second time zone sub-dial, is placed at the 6 o’clock position and the small seconds dial is placed at 9 o’clock. Equipped with the Breguet 589 F caliber and high frequency escapement of 10 Hz, this timepiece beats at 72,000 vibrations per hour. It has a power reserve of 45 hours and is water resistant to a depth of 100 metres.
The Type XX Collection by Breguet was first designed for the French naval air army in the 1950s, to satisfy their need for watches so reliable that their life could depend on it. Featuring either Aeronavale or Transatlantique designs, these timepieces had prominent, easy to read hour markers and displayed time with military precision. Later, Breguet released a civilian version of these timepieces, integrated with a self-winding movement. Based on the original aesthetics of XX, XXI and XXII were launched by Breguet. The major difference between these three collections is the size of the case. In 2010, the Type XXII timepiece was manufactured, consisting of a high frequency movement of 72000 A/h, a feat of marvel that was way ahead of its time.
The sturdy construction and unyielding style of theses watches have made them a favourite among watch connoisseurs who are looking for a technical and original sports watch. For ease in resetting, stopping, and restarting the chronograph function of the watches, they feature a fly-back function that enables you to preform all these operations with just a push of a button. The watches in the Type XXI feature a 24 hour time display and a fly-back minute totaliser at the centre. All the watches in the Transatlantique edition showcase a date window at the 6 o’clock position. Several versions of the Transatlantique watches have also been made for women who appreciate the technical beauty of timepieces as well as the aesthetic.
The instruments in the collection feature a uni-directional rotating bezel in 18 carat Rose gold, white gold, or stainless steel case with bevelled sides, offering a bouquet of choices. The watches feature recessed sub dials with two push buttons at the side along with a signed crown. Further, you can choose from straps made of leather, stainless steel and gold bracelet.
The Type XXII 3880ST was honoured with the Premio Argo’ 2010 award in the Technical category and the Type XXII 3880 received the prestigious Public’s Prize award by Swiss publication, Montres Passion in 2013.
