At Baselworld this year, Zenith applied green to brand new models and launched a new pilot model Type20Adventure. The bronze case with green dial and strap makes the new model shine on different occasions. I have to say that this beauty has conquered me. The new model follows the classic design of the pilot series, with green as the main color of the model, and brings us a different visual experience. Let’s take a look at this new pilot series timepiece released by Zenith this year.
As the first choice for contemporary retro modern timepieces, the Pilot Series Type20ChronographAdventure Chronograph draws inspiration from early aviation together, with a bronze case with an easily adjustable wide ratchet crown, and a titanium case back decorated with Zenith flight instruments. The logo pays tribute to the collection’s proud pioneering spirit.
Watch real shot
The watch has a diameter of 45 mm and the case is made of bronze with a rustic color. And the bronze material is quite special. After years of precipitation, it can produce a natural bronze green. The side of the case is engraved with ‘HB-XXX’. ‘HB’ stands for Swiss Civil Aviation Registration Code, followed by the watch number.
The ‘Onion’ large crown is the iconic design of the Zenith Pilot Series, which can easily adjust the time when wearing gloves. This crown originated from the design of early pilot watches, but has now become a retro design.
The bronze case has a grained khaki green dial, and the iconic oversized Arabic numerals and hands are covered with Super-LumiNova® fluorescent paint. At 6 o’clock, ‘PILOT’ is engraved. Zenith is the only one that can be engraved with ‘PILOT’ on the dial. In this new pilot’s watch, the classic design of many pilots is blended, which is very retro and modern without losing its modern style.
The new Pilot Series Type20ChronographAdventure model is equipped with camouflage crocodile leather and soft khaki matrix calfskin leather belt. The strap has protective rubber and a titanium buckle buckle, which is full of military style.
The movement is equipped with an Elite 679 automatic winding movement, which can provide a power reserve of at least 50 hours. The titanium case back is adorned with the Zenith flight instrumentation logo, a tribute to the proud pioneering spirit of the collection.
Zenith’s new Pilot Pilot Series Type20Adventure brand new model, with a modern tough shape and a powerful and precise movement, and this year Zenith has adopted green as the new main color, adding an adventure style and distinctiveness to the model Personality.
