Type 20

The new Airain Type 20 faithfully matches the design of the original 1950’s model



From the 1950s to the 1990s Airain was one of the selected suppliers of the Type 20 and Type 21 models for the French Army and specifically to the helicopter pilots of the ALAT units (Aviation Légère de l’Armée de Terre).

The new Airain Type 20 and Type 21 pilot watches faithfully match in every detail the design and specifications of the brand’s original timepieces.
