Just got this in an e-mail from Breguet.
Breguet TYPE XXII - Flyback Chronograph in Steel is now available in the New
York Breguet Boutique.
"The Breguet Type XXII chronograph offers an aesthetic reinterpretation of
the legendary Type XX, but above all embodies a high-precision achievement.
This creation is equipped with the first and only series-made mechanical
chronograph movement with a silicon escapement and balance spring boasting a
frequency raised to 10 Hz, meaning 72,000 vibrations per hour. The seconds
hand performs a complete rotation in 30 seconds. 24-hour indicator and
second time-zone indicator. Water resistant to 100m. Diameter 44 mm.
Now, the $19,200 is the only sticking point! See the attached photo, a
really nice timekeeper.
