Type 20 refers to a specification for pilot’s chronographs issued by the French Ministry of Defense. The unique feature of the Type 20 was the ‘flyback’ function, which allows the pilot to easily reset the chronograph hand, and quickly start timing a new event without the lag in time of pushing two more buttons. 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 hand-wound 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.
The Type 20 Furtivité Limited Edition is a testament to stealthiness. Its name was chosen to emphasise its military overtones and its exclusive and elusive character. The anthracite shade provided by its Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating offers enhanced durability and lends it a sleek, inconspicuous identity that subtly complements any outfit. The Type 20 Furtivité is limited to 134 pieces and is powered by our caliber AM2, developed and made by Manufacture AMT – Sellita’s customisation department for high-end movements – in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
