In the 1950s, Airain’s legendary Type 20 served as a trusted companion for the ALAT Aviation Service, the French Army’s airborne division. Its elegance lies in its non-compromising, straightforward looks, as well as its lethal precision. Presented here is a unique, green edition of the revived Type 20, dubbed ‘Vert Militaire’, as a celebration of Airain’s military history.
The Airain Type 20 Vert Militaire is based on the Type 20 Re-Edition which closely matches the original 1950s Type 20. It features a hand wound column wheel chronograph with flyback function and countdown bezel. Its dial has the original lumed Arabic numerals, a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, and a 30 minute recorder at 3 o’clock and is protected by a domed Hesalite crystal. The hand-applied beige Super-LumiNova color has been carefully chosen to recall the original luminescent material of the original Type 20.
