Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Silver

Zenith 2019

ref. 05.2430.679.17.C902
Men's

As the brand to have registered the "Pilot" name for watches, Zenith has full legitimacy in this domain, as it again demonstrates with the Pilot Type 20 Extra Special Silver: the first Zenith watch to be cased in 925 sterling silver. The back of the case, measuring 45mm in diameter and water-resistant to 100 metres, gives a nod to the watch's origins with an engraving of the historic Zenith Flying Instruments logo. The large, ratcheted crown is another shout-out to vintage aviation watches. The brushed silver dial features a riveted motif, with large numerals and hands. Counting time is an Elite 679 movement that delivers 50 hours of power reserve.
