MONTRE CHRONOGRAPHE


TYPE 23



"Superbe réalisation à la hauteur de nos attentes"


"Dodane reste pour moi la référence en terme de mesure de temps pour tout ce qui vole, je vous remercie de ce partage de passion!"


"Le TYPE 23 m'accompagne lors de mes vols et reprend sa place de prédilection!"



TYPE 21 chronographs were designed on the basis of draconian specifications from the Ministry of Defence. The Type 23’s technical properties have fuelled


The
TYPE 23 chronograph was developed in 2012 using funds from the sale by subscription of 600 mechanical watches and 150 quartz watches to pilots and members of France’s Air Force.

The objective was to provide the highest quality product possible in order to allow the most subscribers which personally buying the instrument.




According to its aeronautical environement, the TYPE 23 was designed by Julien THIEBAUD in association with Cédric DODANE.


 



The TYPE 23 is 42.5 mm in diameter. This contemporary format provides optimum readability, in line with the military specification requirements, which have shaped Dodane’s destiny.



The
finish is brushed to assure durability. The Dodane quality stems from years of very tight production for the Air Force where the tolerance is zero.



The mechanical watch has been successfully subjected to strict testing for the regularity of its functions, its resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, its consistency during temperature variations, and water resistance.
It was manufactured according to the latest technology and with the highest quality of materials associated with precision movement.



All pieces are chronographs and chronometer ready with many pieces tested from the National Observatory of Measuring Time of Besançon. The TYPE 23 chronograph is based on Dubois Depraz 2030 and 42030 (Flyback in option) movements.



As The TYPE 21, The TYPE 23can be certified as a «chronometer» by the «National Observatory of Time Measurement» in Besancon.

MOVEMENT FLYBACK DUBOIS-DEPRAZ 42030 ET 2030


The mechanical watch has been successfully subjected to strict testing for the regularity of its functions, its resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, its consistency during temperature variations, and water resistance.
It was manufactured according to the latest technology and with the highest quality of materialsassociated with precision movement.


The Flyback function allows it to be instantly reset during the chronograph’s operation by pressing the lower push button, without having to first stop the operation with the higher push button.
When pressure is maintained on the second button, the hand stays at zero and only starts again when pressure is released. The fly-back device enables an aircraft pilot or ship’s captain to follow instructions and change headings according to a predefined course.

CERTIFIED CHRONOMETER


The intrinsic qualities of theTYPE 23 movement enable us to offer, at special request, to have the watch certified a chronometric instrument by the official observatory of time measurement and verification of Besançon.
