In 2017, Zenith’s well-known pilot watch series has a new and improved design. The watch is equipped with a sandblasted black dial and khaki green oily suede leather strap. It is adventurous and shows a new retro look. The use of bronze materials also makes the watch more classical. Let’s take a look at more detailed design of this watch:
The large 45 mm case is made of bronze with an oversized luminous display design to ensure unparalleled readability. It is equipped with a large-size spiral crown and ratchet buttons for easy adjustment while wearing gloves. Bronze, a highly diamagnetic alloy, and its natural luster give the watch a unique retro look.

The inscriptions d’ Aéronef and Pilot remind everyone that in the early days of the military and civil aviation industries, manufacturers were one of the earliest manufacturers of altimeters and cockpit watches.
Inside the watch is a legendary ‘engine’: the El Primero calibre 4069. This high-frequency column-wheel chronograph movement is a descendant of the world’s most accurate mass-produced chronograph developed and launched by Zenith in 1969. The frequency of the movement is 5 Hz, which can display tenths of a second, driving the central hour and minute hands, small seconds and chronograph functions, while ensuring a 50-hour power reserve.
