Pilot watches from early last century have a very specific aesthetic that's difficult to stray from without breaking the link to early aviation. But Zenith's latest creation manages to sneak in a sterling silver case and dial – a first for Zenith.
Inside the sterling silver case is the El Primero caliber 4069, a movement that's infrequently used, but that fits the application perfectly. Why? Well the lack of a date, of course (watches didn't have date complications until later than 1909). On the caseback, there's an engraving honoring Zenith's tight-knit relationship with aviation – after all, this is the brand that holds the trademark on the name "Pilot" for a watch.
