ZENITH ? PILOT Type 20 Collection

 

Three powerful, rare and sophisticated new aviator?s watches are joining the iconic Pilot collection from Zenith. Whether fitted with a meteorite dial, housed in a bronze case or displaying a breathtakingly light architecture, each of these new launches is heir to the onboard instruments developed by the Manufacture during the infancy of aviation.

These inherently exclusive timepieces are endowed with the main attributes of their legendary forebears: a high-precision movement, an imposing diameter, a broad ratcheted screwed-in crown, as well as large Arabic numerals swept over by finely crafted hands.

Two models, powered by the famous 5011K pocket-watch calibre, immediately find their place in the Haute Horlogerie firmament, while the Extra Special or Extra Spécial bronze version displays the resolutely vintage spirit of the famous ?Type 20? watches. All three are a vivid reminder of the fundamental role played by Zenith in the conquest of the skies.

PILOT COLLECTION A LINEAGE DESTINED TO SOAR

 

Drawing inspiration from the onboard instruments that Zenith produced in the early days of aeronautics, the Pilot collection is a worthy heir to the years of airborne conquest and the iconic models that accompanied these fabled adventures. Intended for devotees of aviation and its history, for those with a passion for mechanics and a penchant for far-flung horizons, the Pilot line symbolises discovery, exploration, as well as a taste for adventure and challenges.

Zenith played a pioneering role in equipping the planes and dirigibles of aviation pioneers in the early 20 th century, such as Louis Blériot who flew over the Channel in 1909 with his Zenith firmly strapped to his wrist; or Léon Morane who one year later became the first pilot ever to exceed the speed of 100 km/h. The Manufacture subsequently became one of the first manufacturers of aircraft altimeters and montres d?aéronef (aircraft watches), supplied to the military as well as to civilian airline companies.

Acknowledged by aeronautical professionals for its reliability, robustness and precision, the famous Zenith Type 20 found its place on the instrument panels of a number of aircraft from 1939 onwards. These timepieces specially developed for aviation had to withstand extreme conditions of use and provide impeccable legibility.

A broad matt black dial enabled pilots to wind and set their watches without removing their gloves. Embodying these glorious years and countless feats, the three new models in the Pilot collection all feature the distinctive attributes of these legendary watches.

Já bych teda ty bronzovky s tím "pokresleným" strojkem hodně uměl ponosit! Hlavně teda ty "malůvky" na strojku jsou úžasné!

Edit: celé ty bronzovky jsou super! Už na ně čumím 15 minut a berou mě čím dál víc. Na fotce je vidět, že mají z boku přinýtovanou nějakou cedulku...jdu hledat.

Ten napis special by oko nadseneho pilota mohlo snad jeste stravit, ovsem napis extra special zaradil ten treti kousek ( mimochodem nejpovedenejsi) do kategorie - neprodejne. Ackoliv jsou mechanicke strojky hodny obdivu, tak ty skeletony si mohli klidne odpustit ;)

 

Edit: ja si kua nevsiml, ze to je stare vlakno a ze kolega nade mnou jen honi 50 prispevku... Sorry, kuci, kdyz tak to klidne smaznete ;)

Mne sa páčia aj ručičky ale dosť mi vadí zbytočný nápis pilot a extra špeciál jedn tam nebal byt

On the original piece fashioned by Blériot, the dial only read ?Special;? the ?Extra? implies once more that this is a piece both honoring and separate from its past?that it has a bit of something extra not previously offered (such as the bronze case option, pictured below).

Ahoj. Chci se zeptat jestli jste někdo měl tyhle hodinky a víte jaká je přesnost +-/24 hod.

Zjistil jsem že v nich tepe kalibr elite679 ale nevím jestli je i v jiných modelech od zenith. Zajímá mě přesnost toho strojku.
