Exquisite Pilot Type 20 Grand Feu Timepiece By Zenith
As the world’s most respected watchmakers race to present their new, glamorous and innovative timepieces during the 2014 Baselworld event, we’ve seen previews of numerous masterpieces. However, today we’re going to focus a bit on Zenith’s offering – the beautifully designed Pilot Type 20 Grand Feu.
Based on the brand’s already successful Zenith Pilot Montre d’Aéronef Type 20 model, this exquisite timepiece impresses with a remarkably intricate bezel that features a series of spectacular engravings. What is a bit unusual is the fact that the 60mm case of the watch is made out of a single block of sapphire that was carved to shape in order to house the complex array of components that stand at the heart of the timepiece. The large crown, lugs and bezel were made out of luxurious 18k white gold and boast incredible adornments.
The movement powering this stunning piece is an El Primero 5011K by Zenith that is hand-wound and features 18,000 vph, 18 hours of power reserve and 19 jewels. Even though we don’t know exactly how much the Pilot Type 20 Grand Feu by Zenith will cost, we do know that it will be highly exclusive since it will be part of a limited edition of just 10 units.
