    Zenith’s distinctive Pilot Type 20 watch, with its distinctive broad fluted crown now has an extra glow with a bronze case. The dial’s signature oversized luminescent numerals and cathedral-style hands stand out against a background of either black or a matt blue. The aeronautically inspired font is composed of white Super-LumiNova blocks. The caseback reinforces the pilot’s theme with an engraving of the plane flown by Louis Blériot when he crossed the English Channel in 1909, wearing a Zenith, as well as the Zenith flight instruments logo and a motif inspired by the fuselage of Blériot’s aircraft. At the heart of this 40 mm watch is the Zenith automatic Elite 679 calibre with a 50-hour power reserve, protected inside a robust case that is water resistant to 100 metres.

    The Chrono version is right at $7,100, and I believe the three hand version is right around $6,000.
