The TYPE 23 chronographs were designed to fulfil the exacting specifications from the Ministry of Defence. They were 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 watch to as broad a spectrum of aviation professionals as possible.This contemporary dial layout provides optimum readability, in line with the military specification requirements, which have always shaped Dodane’s destiny. The Dodane quality stems from years of exacting production for the French Air Force who require the highest of tolerances. The mechanical watch has been successfully subjected to strict testing for consistent performance of all its time keeping functions, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, and its consistency during temperature variations.
Manufactured using the latest technology and with the highest quality of materials associated with precision movement.

Product Reviews

  • I've had this watch for about 1 month and can't fault it in any way !
    The workmanship is absolutely fantastic,the finish of the case and the dial have to be seen,to be believed ! The clarity and design of the face is superb. Accuracy is very good,and the "action" of the 2 pushers result in a very satisfying and smooth movement. The bezel is bi- directional and moves with a distinct and audible "click",when rotated. High praise indeed,for a high quality watch. I only had to wait a couple of weeks for delivery from Dordane. A great addition to the already extensive P&C offerings !
