Breguet’s Latest Chronograph May Be The Brand’s Sportiest Watch Ever

Breguet is one of the oldest watchmakers in the world, with an illustrious history stretching back to 1775. As the inventor of the tourbillon, Breguet’s catalog is full of dressy complicated watches with very traditional styling. Sport watches aren’t really their calling card — like, at all — but that could change thanks to the brand’s latest chronograph.

The Breguet Type XXI 3815 is the newest addition to the Maison’s line of watches inspired by their Type 20 aviation chronograph from the 1950s, and it’s the most whimsical interpretation yet. Housed in a 42mm titanium case, the watch features a cleaned-up two-register dial displaying the running seconds and a 24-hour register. The chronograph seconds and minutes are both tracked via center-stacked hands in a rather uncommon layout, and a date window at 6 o’clock adds to the aesthetically pleasing symmetry. The most striking feature is certainly the bold oversized Arabic indices in either bright green or flame orange lume, and both color variants come on leather straps with colorful stitching to match the indices. Both variants of the Breguet Type XXI 3815 are limited to 250 pieces and are available now for $14,900.
