ZENITH PILOT TYPE 20 ADVENTURE


‹ Back to the list

 

A natural heir to the onboard instruments developed by Zenith in the early years of aeronautics, the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Adventure is powered by an automatic El Primero column-wheel chronograph movement. Not to be outdone, the Pilot Type 20 Adventure is equipped with an automatic Zenith Elite 679 calibre, ensuring total reliability and a 50-hour power reserve designed to outlast the most tenacious ambush.

 

Featuring the wide easily adjustable ratcheted crown of the original aviation instruments that inspired these must-have pieces of 21st century kit, both Pilot Type 20 Adventure have 45mm cases in bronze. While titanium casebacks bear the ZENITH Flying Instruments logo in a final salute to the pioneering spirit of their role models, the very latest in urban must-haves is issued with grained khaki green dials packing oversized Arabic numerals entirely made of Super-LumiNova®.

 

Making the Pilot Type 20 Adventurer the ultimate accessory if you’re into where the action is, these high-flying timepieces come in a choice of camouflage alligator leather or suave khaki matrix calfskin leather straps, both with protective rubber lining and a titanium pin buckle.

 

ZENITH: the future of Swiss watchmaking

Since 1865, Zenith has been guided by authenticity, daring and passion in pushing the boundaries of excellence, precision and innovation. Soon after its founding in le Locle by visionary watchmaker Georges Favre-Jacot, Zenith gained recognition for the precision of its chronometers, which it has won 2,333 chronometry prizes in just over a century and a half of existence: an absolute record. Famed for its legendary 1969 El Primero calibre enabling short-time measurement accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second, Zenith has since developed over 600 movement variations. Today, Zenith offers new and fascinating vistas, including 1/100th of a second timing with the Defy El Primero 21. Energised by newly reinforced ties with a proud tradition of dynamic, avant-garde thinking, Zenith is writing its future… and the future of Swiss watchmaking.
