Inspired by the legendary Zenith aviation watches of yesteryear, in 2018 the brand with a star adds a new dimension to its iconic Pilot Collection with a 40mm case in glowing bronze. Featuring the broad fluted crown, oversized luminescent numerals, and in-house automatic ‘engine’ of its predecessors, the latest in the line-up is magnificently offset by a choice of matt blue or black dials with matching blue or eminently military khaki green oily nubuck straps and contrasting stitching.
In 2018 Zenith’s famous Pilot Type 20 Extra Special 40 mm goes for bronze – vintage style, once again combining its imposing yet manageable 40mm presence and ideal proportions with a choice of elegant hues. Embodying all the attributes inherited from aviation’s pioneering days, and with its format suited to every wrist, this latest iteration of the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special 40 mm rounds out an already emblematic range from Zenith, thus far composed of large-size watches. Hailing from an all-conquering lineage, this distinctive model featuring more ‘democratic’ 21st century dimensions continues to house the same original attributes: an in-house movement, a broad fluted crown and large luminescent Arabic numerals swept over by finely crafted hands.
