Greetings, and welcome to the world of Zenith. Today, I'll be your guide to the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special 40 millimeters in aged stainless steel with blue grained dial, and matching blue new buck oily leather cat skin strap. For 2017, Zenith has taken its iconic pilot swatch design language and translated it into a more compact and democratic unisex appropriate case size of 40 millimeters. Thematically consistent from its dial center out to its pin buckle. This is a watch that brings the Zenith Pilot's time piece class into a size range suitable for men or women.
Now, men or women in the cockpit, your journey through this watch starts with a large, trapezoidal, brushed finished, titanium pin buckle with the Zenith guiding star. Easy to use for quick on-the-fly adjustments. The dark navy blue featuring a matte finish, contrasting stitch, folded edges is met with modern luxury watch fit finish and features. In as much as a rubber inlay on the bottom of isolates the oily new buck leather from the grit, moisture, and heat of the wrist.
The watch features a signature Zenith case back born of the company's heritage with a nomenclature Montre D'aeronefe Type 20, or perhaps we should say Type Vingt. In the tradition of Zenith's great Le Loque manufacturer, we have the coat of arms of the company as well as the notation of 100 meter water resistance. So, this is an aviators time piece, but nevertheless, with 100 meter water resistance, it's also suited to most aquatic activities, short of professional diving. Simply put the watch on a textile or rubber strap, and it's equally suitable for sea plane pilots.
In vintage fashion, an individual numbering plaque on the flank both limited edition status and the individual millisumation among the 250 pieces in this limited series. The watch features a robustly dome sapphire, that transitions from bezel to dial. In board of the bezel, you can see a white printed, railroad style seconds and minutes track, transitioning to highly stylized aviator fashion, arabic numbers.
Now, the numerals themselves, as well as the broad, vintage inspired cathedral style hands at center are immensely luminescent thanks to super luminova paint. The gradient dial going from dark in its periphery, to lighter at its center, characterized by minimal printing and text, and hand applied Zenith guiding star at 12 o'clock. Simple and historically representative. It's one of many features characteristic of Zenith's pilot range at any size. You can see the robust round case, the dome sapphire, the straight cut lugs, and the generously sized nuraled crown at allows you to easily operate the watch. Whether your hands are gloved in pilots fashion, or simply wet or sweaty.
Now, the time piece features a Zenith in-house elite caliber 679, 27 joules, automatic winding, with a 50 hour power reserve, far more than the industry standard of 40 to 42. It also features stop seconds. So, when you pull the crown to extremity, you halt the balance, and you can synchronize the watch precisely a known accurate reference time.
