Zenith Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Trinidad Edition Trilogy

Marking the jubilee of the one of the most luxurious and trendy cigar in the Habanos collection, Zenith unveiled a precious new Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Trinidad Edition trilogy at Cuba’s 21st Habanos Festival held from February 18th to 22nd 2019 in Havana City, which is also celebrating its 500th anniversary.

The Trinidad 50 anniversary cigar is made at Cohiba’s exclusive El Laguito factory; this Habano is renowned for its rich, aromatic and medium flavour. Embodying all the richness of this iconic cigar, the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Trinidad Edition appears in a trio of 45 mm rose, yellow and white gold cases, each available in 50-piece limited editions and engraved on the back with the Trinidad 50th Anniversary logo.

Beating inside is the automatic El Primero column-wheel chronograph movement, a descendant of the world’s most accurate series-made chronograph calibre that also turns 50 in 2019. It drives the central hours and minutes, small seconds and chronograph functions, displayed on a clearly legible dial bearing oversized beige luminescent numerals, a distinctive tobacco leaf pattern as well as Zenith and Trinidad logos.

These collector’s items are teamed with Trinidad logo patterned Havana brown calfskin leather straps featuring a protective rubber lining with the same logo on the inner side, secured by a pin buckle in 18-carat rose, yellow or white gold matching the case.

An identical once-off Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Trinidad Edition in platinum will be auctioned during the Habanos Festival as a part of the exclusive Trinidad humidor developed in honour of the anniversary of the brand.

Both legendary Maisons with a shared universe of authenticity, precision and excellence, Zenith and Habanos, S.A., each infuse passion and expertise into exceptional creations so as to bring unmatched enjoyment to experienced connoisseurs. The collaboration between Habanos S.A. and Zenith has been consistently successful with the Cohiba brand and now continues with the Trinidad brand.
