Zenith Captain Dual Time

Zenith Captain Dual Time is a classic Ultra-thin automatic watch with second time zone indicator dedicated for travelers. In 1955, ZENITH presented a multi-time-zone watch intended for air pilots; this model was inspired by ZENITH’S aerial navigation instruments that had been integrated into the dashboards of cockpits since 1920.

The Captain Dual Time model is equipped with a GMT hand with a different design, with a blue pointer that ensures optimal readability. This hand is set using a push-piece a 10 o’clock. This mechanism makes it possible to adjust the second time zone with a simple gesture, without risking the deregulation of the time on the watch. The Captain Dual Time is available in two versions with a silver or black “Clou de Paris” guilloché dial, in a steel case, with a metal bracelet or alligator-skin strap.
