ZENITH – Pilot montre d’Aéronef Type 20 GMT 1903

Zenith began making flight instrument panels at the start of the 20th century and aeronautical history became part of its DNA. At that time, on December 17th 1903 to be precise, the Wright brothers designed the first powered aircraft and flew 60cm off the ground for a distance of 40m with a passenger on board. Two pasts and two passions, aviation and watchmaking, come together in one: the Pilot Montre d’Aéronef Type 20 GMT 1903. Its titanium case and black 48mm DLC houses the automatic Elite 693 calibre with a 50-hour power reserve. The black dial has a small second hand at 9 o’clock, 12 large luminescent sandblasted Arabic numerals and a second time zone indicator (hand with red tip). Two wide luminescent ochre hands point to the hours and minutes. Price: 8’000 CHF
