On May 8th, over 120 guests, press representatives and retailers congregated in the Palace Cinema in Shanghai to look back at the sporting and scientific feat accomplished by the one and only man to have broken the sound barrier, Zenith’s Brand Ambassador, Felix Baumgartner.
This exclusive event also provided a chance to present the El Primero Stratos Flyback Striking 10th that Felix was wearing during his jump from the edge of space.
The numerous guests, including successful Chinese businesswoman Julia Li and ultra-marathon runner Kevin Lin of Taiwan, discovered the Montre D’Aéronef Type 20 models from the Pilot collection.
These models are tributes to the onboard instruments specifically developed for aviation, a field where conditions of use were extremely demanding and put mechanisms to a severe test.
For this event, Felix Baumgartner was wearing a Pilot Montre d’Aéronef Type 20 GMT, featuring a function that will doubtless prove more vitally important than ever for this extreme traveler.
