Founded in 1865 by Georges Favre-Jacot, Zenith has a rich history in the manufacture of Swiss timepieces by producing watches which have become icons. The most notable achievement was the creation of the first integrated automatic chronograph movement - the Zenith El primero - which still to this day is the most precise series-made calibre. Inspired by the early days of aviation, the Zenith PILOT Type 20 Chronograph Extra Special really ties in vintage looks of the time with a modern approach. The nubuck leather strap is fastened onto the bronze case. Arabic numerals offer great visibility against the blue dial in both day and night conditions with a coating of SuperLuminova.
