The new Pilot Type 20 Extra Special adopts a smaller size to fit all wrists, whether masculine or feminine. Loyal to the spirit of the famous Zenith pilot’s watches, it picks up the characteristics of its predecessors such as the wide finely grained dial, oversized Arabic numerals and facetted hands ensuring perfect legibility by day or night, as well as the voluminous fluted crown guaranteeing an optimal grip. This resolutely vintage model radiating a winning spirit features an aged steel case teamed with a topstitched rubberlined nubuck strap. It pays tribute to the history of the Maison with a dedicated signature appearing on the solid caseback : a starred shield engraved with the date 1865, the year Zenith was founded. This unisex Pilot watch comes in four distinctive models sporting original colors on their dials and straps.
