The Airain Type 20 was revived in November 2020 with the release of Airain Type 20 Re-Edition, which faithfully matches in every detail the design and specifications of the original 1950’s Type 20, including a hand-wound column wheel chronograph with flyback function and a countdown bezel. Its dial, protected by a domed Hesalite crystal, has the same Arabic numerals as the original timepieces, with two registers at 3 and 9 o’clock that can count to 30 minutes.
The Type 20 Re-Edition is powered by our caliber AM1 which boasts 60 hours of power reserve, developed and made by Manufacture La Joux-Perret S.A. in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The Airain Type 20 Pink Ribbon Pièce Unique features a pink dial and unique pink ribbon caseback engraving.
