Special shine thanks to bronzeVery cool: The Pilot Type 20 Extra Special 40 mm
Zenith’s distinctive Pilot Type 20 watch, with its distinctive broad fluted crown now has an extra glow with a bronze case. The dial’s signature oversized luminescent numerals and cathedral-style hands stand out against a background of either black or a matt blue.
The aeronautically inspired font is composed of white Super-LumiNova blocks. The caseback reinforces the pilot’s theme with an engraving of the plane flown by Louis Blériot when he crossed the English Channel in 1909, wearing a Zenith, as well as the Zenith flight instruments logo and a motif inspired by the fuselage of Blériot’s aircraft. At the heart of this 40 mm watch is the Zenith automatic Elite 679 calibre with a 50-hour power reserve, protected inside a robust case that is water resistant to 100 metres.
