The Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special in stainless steel. Model reference: 03.2430.3000/21.c738. This watch features a robust 45 mm case with screwed-on lugs and a satin-brushed finish that contrasts against the mirror polished bezel and ratcheted onion-shaped crown typical of historical aviator watches — that ensures a perfect grip even with pilot’s gloves. Featuring a traditional ‘Pilot’s watch’ matte black dial layout with Arabic numerals in SLN C1 superluminova, the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special is one of those Pilot’s watches with a flawless execution at a very nice price. The matte dial features a white rail minute track with yellow minute markers and the ‘Extra Special’ writing at 6 o’clock. The dial also features an applied mirror polished iconic Zenith star at 12 o’clock. The dial is rounded out by the vintage-shaped black ruthenium-plated and satin-finished hands also with super bright superluminova. The satin-brushed finished case measures 45 mm in diameter by 14.25 mm in thickness. The lugs are screwed onto the case and the onion-shaped crown is the most iconic feature on this watch. The case is very wearable and vintage looking. The case features curved lugs and an engraved plate —showing the case number and secured with two beautiful rounded blued screws— on the left side of the case band. The watch is fitted with an oily nubuck leather strap with tan contrast stitching and with protective rubber lining. The strap is very supple and equipped with an oversized pin buckle with Zenith star on bas-relief. The beating heart inside this watch is the automatic calibre Zenith 3000 composed of 126 parts, 25 jewels and which beats at a frequency of 28,800 vph —4 Hz— providing a power reserve of 42 hours when fully wound. The movement is protected by a solid mirror polished stainless steel case back engraved with the Zenith flying instruments logo and the watch is water resistant to a 100 meters. The watch comes in original packaging, with a set of documents.
