A Bit of History
Learn about the history of Montres Airain
After reviving Airain’s original sister brand Lebois & Co in 2014 we had our sights set on Airain, which was owned by a French entrepreneur and watch aficionado. After explaining our plans we convinced him and he allowed us to acquire the brand from him, making Airain once again the sister brand of Lebois & Co, just as in 1934.
Today we want to give Airain a new life. Starting with a new version of the higly sought after ‘Type 20’ Flyback Chronograph.
The Legend called Type 20
Other characteristics of Type 20 chronographs are: a 38mm diameter and 14mm thick case, a black dial with luminescent indexes and hands, a self-winding 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.
