Zenith has chosen its iconic Pilot line to introduce its first  ever  timepiece  with  a  silver case.  Renowned  for its unique heritage and extensive range of appealing choices,  the  Pilot  line offers the ideal platform for this new high-flyer issued in a 250-piece limited edition.

 

Zenith is the watch brand that holds the trademark for the 'Pilot' name, naturally giving it special legitimacy in the realm of aviation timepieces. Powered by high-precision mechanical 'engines' in the shape of Zenith Manufacture movements, these are models distinguished by reliability, readability and robustness.

 

The Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Silver channels the collection's pioneering spirit as well as Zenith's acclaimed history of onboard instruments developed during the early years of aeronautics. Water-resistant to 100 metres, the 45 mm-diameter silver case is duly inscribed on the back with the Zenith flying instruments logo in tribute to its origins. The instantly identifiable wide ratcheted Pilot crown ensuring quick and easy adjustment, while the clearly legible brushed silver riveted dial bears the line's emblematic outsize hour-markers and likewise oversized faceted luminescent hours, minutes and seconds hands. The accuracy of these indications is ensured by an automatic Zenith Elite 679 calibre endowed with a generous 50-hour power reserve. Securing this rugged model securely to the wrist is a brown calfskin leather strap with a rivet and silver pin buckle, along with a distinctive tab recalling  those featured on vintage pilot helmets.

 

While never losing sight of the adventurous mindset that forged its legend, the imposing presence and sporting  spirit of the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Silver offers a standout silver spin on a proud heritage.

 

ZENITH: The Future of Swiss Watchmaking

 

Since 1865, Zenith has been guided by authenticity, daring and passion in pushing the boundaries of excellence, precision and innovation. Soon after its founding in Le Lode by visionary watchmaker Georges Favre-Jacot, Zenith gained recognition for the precision of its chronometers, with which it has won 2,333 chronometry prizes in Just over a century and a half of existence: an absolute record. Famed for its legendary 1969 El Primera calibre enabling short-time measurements accurate to the nearest 1/1Dth of a second, the Manufacture has since developed over 600 movement variations. Today, Zenith offers new and fascinating vistas in time measurement,  including 1/100th of a second timing with the Defy El Primera 21; and a whole new dimension in mechanical precision with the world's most accurate watch, the 21st century Defy Lab. Energised by newly reinforced ties with a proud tradition of dynamic, avant-garde thinking, Zenith is writing its future ... and the future of Swiss watchmaking.
