Zenith Montre d’Aéronef Type 20 Extra Special 45mm Pilot Swiss Automatic Complete
We take trades against any of our watches!!! We also buy watch packages!!
The Zenith Type 20 Extra Special is a good-looking watch. The 45mm steel case is well constructed and shows a satin-brushed finish. The curved lugs are screwed-on, as is the engraved plate on the side of the case. Held in place by two blued screws, it shows the case number. The large onion-shaped crown is ideal for gripping with heavy gloves on.
What turns heads though is the design of the matte black dial. The Arabic numerals have a SLN C1 superluminova coating and really pop. No matter the lighting conditions. Same goes for the ruthenium-plated and satin-finished Cathedral hands. Also, with super bright superluminova.
Around the periphery is a white rail minute track with yellow minute markers. The colour matches the ‘Extra Special’ writing at 6 o’clock. Framing everything is a thin, mirror polished bezel. It ties in well with the applied mirror polished Zenith star at 12 o’clock.
The Type 20 Extra Special comes on a supple Nubuck leather strap with a rubber lining. It’s closed with an oversized pin buckle with Zenith star in bas-relief.
