Zenith will introduce an unusual wrist watch under their new Pilot collection. The Zenith Pilot Type Grand Feu Watch model will be issued in a strictly limited 10-piece edition.
The watch is endowed with an original Zenith caliber 5011K, a pocket watch and marine chronometer movement that beat at a slow and steady 2.5Hz. Based on the 60mm Zenith Type 20, its case is carved from a block of sapphire with 18kt white gold lugs, bezel and an oversized crown made of pure white gold.
That will be Zenith’s first sapphire case and the biggest in watch production history. The Zenith Pilot Type 20 Grand Feu watch edition is limited to only 10 pieces with an almost incredible retail price of $181,593(AUD) equivalents to about US$170,000.
