TYPE 20 RE-EDITION
Throughout the 1950s and 1960s Airain was one of the selected suppliers of the Type 20 model for the French Army and specifically to the helicopter pilots of the ALAT units (Aviation Légère de l’Armée de Terre).
The all new Airain Type 20 Re-Edition faithfully matches in every detail the design and specifications of the brand’s original 1950’s Type 20.

Other characteristics of the original Type 20 chronographs were: a 38mm diameter and 14mm thick case, a black dial with luminescent indexes and hands, a mechanical movement with a power reserve of over 35 hours, a relative precision of + or – 8 seconds per day and finally, the capacity to withstand the running, stopping and resetting of the chronograph more than 300 times without causing any problems to the movement.
