The Heritage Pilot Café Racer by Zenith
Zenith is taking a break from the sky and returning to dry land: as the name suggests, Heritage Pilot Café Racer is inspired by the famous British motorbikes from the 1960s. The bikes were stripped back to basics (single seater, almost inexistent body, straight and low handlebar) to reach speeds of 100mph and their raw retro look oozes from the new model by Zenith.
The Heritage Pilot Café Racer has a sleek vintage steel 45mm case containing the self-winding El Primero 4069 calibre (50-hour power reserve) with “Café Racer Spirit” engraved on the titanium back.
Its textured slate grey dial bears an hour rim whose large Arabic numerals are coated in beige Super-LumiNova®. There are two vintage-style hour and minute hands whilst the seconds appear at 9. The chronograph seconds stand in the centre and the minute counter lies at 3.
