Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special – 40 mm

The Pilot from Zenith is from now on available for all wrists. In its new 40 mm case made from aged steel, its attributes inherited from aviation make an ideal match with the retro shades of the oily nubuck straps with contrasting stitching.

Mustard, khaki, blue or burgundy, the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special’s shades are still elegant while never losing the vintage look of this model. With its format suited to every wrist, the new Pilot Type 20 Extra Special 40 mm is a unisex watch that rounds out an emblematic range from Zenith, thus far composed of large-size watches. Its original attributes keep unchanged: an in-house movement, a broad fluted crown and large luminescent Arabic numerals swept over by finely crafted hands.

Crafted from aged steel, the case is topped by a domed sapphire crystal protecting a broad slate grey or khaki or blue or burgundy dials with a grained finish. An optimal legibility is ensured by an aeronautically inspired font composed of beige Super-LumiNova® blocks, along with beige luminescent facetted hands.

Pilot Type 20 Extra Special – 40 mm

The Pilot Type 20 Extra Special houses the automatic Zenith Elite 679 calibre. This reliable and accurate in-house movement drives central hours, minutes and seconds hands, while delivering a 50-hour power reserve. The solid aged steel case-back bears the company’s historical logo, a coat-of-arms studded with stars bearing the founding date of the Manufacture Zenith: 1865.

Water-resistant to 100 metres, this watch sets the seal on its trendy neo-retro look with choice of straps in mustard, khaki, blue or burgundy oily nubuck, featuring a protective rubber lining and a titanium pin buckle.
