ZENITH – Pilot Type 20 Extra Special

Bronze, the copper and tin alloy, is a metal popular in the world of art, especially in sculpture. The wear and rust-resistant metal forms a natural patina over time (or using specific products) which gives each piece a unique look. Bronze is made into a case to join Zenith’s Pilot collection. The solid and impressive 45mm case is 14.25mm thick with a large notched screwdown crown and houses the self-winding Elite 679 movement which brings to life the hour/minute/second functions in the centre and 50-hour power reserve. The hours on the matt black dial are displayed as large Arabic numerals coated in Super-LumiNova® beneath thick gilded luminescent hands. The minutes lie on a white scale dotted with pale orange numbers on the chapter ring. Price: 6,900 CHF. Sharmila Berin
