For the second time, Zenith and the UK based The Watch Gallery collaborated to produce a special watch. In 2013 they introduced the El Primero Chronomaster Power Reserve which became an immediate success. This year the Swiss manufacturer and the prestigious watch retailer launched the Zenith Pilot Extra Special.

The Zenith Pilot Extra Special is based on a watch in the standard collection: the Zenith Pilot. The pilot’s watch is known for its rugged looks, firm case, oversized onion crown and striking vintage Arabic numerals. This model has the same characteristic components, but also features some exclusive touches: the dial has the signature blue color of The Watch Gallery, the brown alligator strap has blue stitching and the case back is engraved with the limited edition number. The watch is powered by the in-house Elite 679 Calibre is limited to 35 pieces. Take off is scheduled for December 1st.
