Zenith – Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Adventure and Pilot Type 20 Adventure Automatic Three Hands

Zenith Pilot Type 20 Adventure combines a wholly urban outlook with unparalleled versatility. Expressing reliability, comfort and robustness, the Pilot Type 20 Adventure also comes in a chronograph version, the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Adventure.

These timepieces boast trademark Pilot easy readability and with two fully-interchangeable strap options, these additions to the Zenith Pilot line are set to be a high-energy hit for every occasion.

A natural heir to the onboard instruments developed by Zenith in the early years of aeronautics, the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Adventure is powered by an automatic El Primero column-wheel chronograph movement.

 

The Pilot Type 20 Adventure is equipped with an automatic Zenith Elite 679 calibre, ensuring total reliability and a 50-hour power reserve designed to outlast the most tenacious ambush.

Featuring the wide easily adjustable ratcheted crown of the original aviation instruments that inspired these must-have pieces of 21st century kit, both Pilot Type 20 Adventure watches have 45mm cases in bronze.

While titanium case backs bear the ZENITH Flying Instruments logo in a final salute to the pioneering spirit of their role models, the very latest in urban must-haves is issued with grained khaki green dials packing oversized Arabic numerals entirely made of Super-LumiNova®.

These high-flying timepieces come in a choice of camouflage alligator leather or suave khaki matrix calfskin leather straps, both with protective rubber lining and a titanium pin buckle.
