An imposing presence and an adventurous temperament: Zenith’s famous Pilot watch displays its vintage style on all wrists. In a new 40 mm case made from aged steel, its attributes inherited from aviation’s pioneering days – a broad fluted crown, oversized luminescent numerals, a grained dial and an in-house ‘motor’ – make an ideal match with the retro shades of the oily nubuck straps with contrasting stitching.

The case crafted from aged steel and water-resistant to 100 meters is topped by a domed sapphire crystal protecting a broad khaki dial with a grained finish. Optimal legibility is ensured by an aeronautically inspired font composed of beige Super-LumiNova blocks, along with beige luminescent facetted hands.

At its heart beats the automatic Zenith Elite 679 caliber. This reliable and accurate in-house movement drives central hours, minutes and seconds hands, while delivering a 50-hour power reserve. In a nod to the history of the maison, the solid aged steel caseback bears the company’s historical logo – a coat-of-arms studded with stars and bearing the founding date of the Manufacture Zenith: 1865.

This distinctive and classy watch sets the seal on its trendy neo-retro look with its oily nubuck strap, featuring a protective rubber lining and a titanium pin buckle.
