Legendary Zenith updates at Baselworld 2019

At Baselworld 2019, Zenith sets the crowning touch to the festivities honoring its legendary 1969 El Primero and pilot’s watch

One thing that makes this year more interesting from Zenith is the fact that the brand has chosen its iconic Pilot line to introduce its first ever timepiece with a silver case. Named the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Silver, this watch channels the collection’s pioneering Pilot type 20 extra Special Silver spirit as well as Zenith’s acclaimed history of onboard instruments developed during the early years of aeronautics.

Renowned for its unique heritage and extensive range of appealing choices, the Pilot line offers the ideal platform for this new watch, which issued in a 250-piece limited edition. Above all, while never losing sight of the adventurous mindset that forged its legend, the imposing presence and sporting spirit of the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Silver offers a standout silver spin on a long and proud heritage.

CASE. The 45mm silver case is completed with the Zenith flying instruments logo on the caseback, in tribute to its origins.

MOVEMENT. Powered by an automatic Zenith Elite 679 calibre, this movement is completed with a generous 50-hour power reserve.

STRAP. Securing this rugged model securely to your wrist is a brown calfskin leather strap, along with a distinctive tab recalling those featured on vintage pilot helmets.
