Powerful aura, showing bold style: Zenith’s famous Pilot watch always adheres to retro style. The new 40 mm case is made of old steel, and the rest of the characteristics are inherited from the earliest days of the aviation industry-the wide grooved crown, the large luminous numerals, the grained dial and the autonomous ‘engine’-all these features are compared with the use The oily frosted strap with stitching design works in harmony.
Mustard yellow, khaki, blue or burgundy red. 40 mm diameter. Elegant tones and ideal proportions, without losing the spirit of adventure on which legends are built. Distressed steel, grained (blue-gray, khaki, blue or Burgundy red) dial, large light brown numerals, frosted strap: Zenith’s new Pilot watch is the most fashionable retro watch one.
The new Pilot Type 20 Extra Special 40 mm watch not only includes oversize, but its shape fits any wrist size, completing Zenith’s iconic collection. The size is more ‘popular’, but it has not discarded the original features: the main movement, the wide grooved crown, and the refined hands have steadily swept the large luminous Arabic numerals. The new Pilot watch is famous and invincible!
The case made of old steel is water-resistant to 100 meters, and the curved sapphire crystal glass has a wide cyan-gray, khaki, blue or burgundy red grain dial. Light brown Super-LumiNova® luminous font with light brown luminous faceted hands, inspired by the aviation industry, guarantees optimal readability.
At the heart of the watch is the Zenith Elite 679 automatic winding movement. This reliable and precise self-moving core drives the central hour, minute and second hands while providing a 50-hour power reserve. To pay tribute to the brand’s history, the watch’s purely old steel case back bears the historic brand logo-the shield, with a star pattern on it, and the original year of the Zenith Manufacture: 1865.
This unique and sophisticated watch uses a mustard yellow, khaki, blue or burgundy red oily matte strap, rubber protective lining and titanium pin buckle, setting the tone for a stylish new vintage look.
