Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 40 mm. THICKNESS 15 mm. The final version of the famed BREGUET TYPE XX CAL. 726 wristwatch, prior to the 1994 re-release, were available in two versions; those featuring a two register- 60 minute counter using the Valjoux Cal. 725 movement, or a 3 register dial with the addition of a 12-hour counter using the Cal. 726 movement; the 726 was the fly-back version of the Cal.72 found in the Rolex Daytona model. Both movements were fitted within a slightly larger 40.6mm. diameter steel case with matt black rotating bezels. Research would suggest examples of the more complex versions with 12-hour registers were designated by a letter B in front of the 5 digit case number. Although possibly very early production models were assigned for military use, the final version of Breguet aeronautic 'military' chronograph was only available for the civilian market exclusively from the Paris boutique, albeit in relatively limited numbers, from the early 1970's until the 1980's. Apparently only 1,400 Valjoux Cal.725 movements were designated for use by Breguet, with presumably a mere 10 percent of that figure representing the number of three-register Cal. 726 movements ordered.

Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 42 mm. THICKNESS 17 mm. Launched in 1965 as a successor to the MEMOVOX DEEPSEA, the POLARIS was JAEGER LECOULTRE's response to the ever-increasing popularity of recreational scuba diving. Designed in a massive 42 mm.case, it featured an internal revolving bezel as well as an alarm function and a date. Equipped with the Jaeger caliber K825 that revolutionized the watch world a few years before as the world's first automatic alarm watch, the Polaris offered divers reliability and endurance. The first generation was fitted with a plain full back and a dial with applied baton indexes, the second generation of 1968-70 were drilled for better sound emission and a dial with large luminous indexes. The total production of the Polaris model is believed to be fewer than 1714 units, manufactured between 1965 and 1970. Examples destined for the American market were signed LeCoultre to the dial with the remaining signed Jaeger LeCoultre.
