    First Zenith - Pilot Cronometro Tipo CP-2 Flyback - has landed!

    This is the aged stainless steel edition:


    It's been on my radar for over a year now. I narrowed it down to this along with the bronze iteration, which were both released in 2018. Last summer, I almost pulled the trigger on the bronze piece, which is pictured below:


    However, I was apprehensive with respect to how the bronze case would age. IMHO, Zenith did an amazing job with both of these. I think these are much better than the revival CP-2, which was released in 2016. They also incorporate a new movement, the El Primero Cal. 405B, with Flyback function. I finally decided on the aged SS piece last week during my trip to Miami:


    I had them swap out the default olive colored strap for the brown strap:




    Quite pleased that I finally pulled the trigger on this combo:


    Have a great weekend!

    Regards,

    Mark

    Did the dealer actually let you take the bronze one home and test drive it? Or maybe a friend’s? Just figured that from the shot you took of it.

    Nice brand, model and movement. Congrats.

    No, the AD was kind enough to let me take it outside the shop so I could see how it looked in natural light.
