Zenith Pilot Type 20 Cohiba Special editions

Zenith presents the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition and the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition.

Zenith’s partnership with cigar brand manufacturer Cohiba gets off to a smoking start in 2018, at the 20th Cuban Habanos Festival, with the launch of two new limited-edition versions of the brand’s celebrated Pilot Type 20 model: the 50-piece Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition in 18-carat rose gold, and the 150-piece Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition in bronze.

2017 saw the launch of a number of groundbreaking new references, including two new iterations of the brand’s famous Pilot watch with its imposing presence and adventurous temperament, the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Extra Special and as the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Special Edition.

This year, the partnership launched in 2016 between the Swiss watchmaker and Cuban flagship cigar brand on the occasion of the latter’s 50th anniversary lights up again. What could be more natural for two luxury cult brands to come together in a pair of timepieces distinguished by this shared noble bearing and vintage patina?

So it is that in 2018 Zenith has produced the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition and Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition in rose gold and bronze respectively. Water resistant to 10 ATM and endowed with a 50-hour power reserve, the trademark striking case, wide ratcheted easily adjustable crown (along with pushpieces in the case of the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition), and oversized luminescent numerals of the Zenith/Cohiba Pilot watches proudly flaunt all the DNA of a line of airborne conquerors, while emulating the rich tones of the Maduro 5 wrapping.

Produced in a numbered edition of 50 for the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition and 150 in bronze for its Pilot Type 20 Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition counterpart, these timepieces display both the Zenith and the Cohiba logos on their sandblasted black dials. Both feature gold-plated hour and minute hands with a small seconds hand at 9 o’clock on the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition, together with a central chrono hand and 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. A special titanium caseback bearings the number of the piece in the series, along with the name ‘Cohiba Maduro 5’ atop an engraving of Cohiba’s “El Laguito” historical factory.

A brown oily nubuck strap with protective rubber lining, special stitching and titanium pin buckle on the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition; and a brown alligator leather strap with protective rubber lining and matching 18-carat rose gold pin buckle on the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Cohiba Maduro 5 Edition, set the perfect finishing touches to both timepieces.
