Lot Essay

With a striking resemblance to the Breguet Type XX chronograph, it is understood that Mathey Tissot produced and assembled the Breguet Type XX wristwatches for Breguet, however they produced a very small number of similar flyback chronograph wristwatches under there own name. The present watch is one of the few acclaimed Type XX watches which are signed Mathey Tissot.

The dial features an unusual fifteen minute counter at 3 o'clock with luminous hour markers every three minutes. The dial also features a 12-hour counter at 6 o'clock making it extremely rare as it is estimated that roughly 50 examples of this watch were made with this third subsidiary dial.
