In 2016, Zenith released the first iteration of this watch dedicated to Café Racers (stripped down motorcycles capable of exceeding 100mph) and their community, named the “Ton-Up Boys,” with the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Ton-Up Stainless model. Featuring an arguably unique “aged steel” case material and faded grey dial, the watch sold well.
The 45mm case utilized the same “aged steel” style as its predecessor. The case comes standard with a surface layer of patina that fits the style of the watch quite well and the remarkably thin 14.25mm sits well on the wrist. The oversized crown and pushers have a serrated texture and are aged to match the case. Overall, the case blends together well, even if it is a bit large.
Inside the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Ton-Up Chronograph is Zenith’s 5Hz El Primero 4069 calibre – arguably one of the strongest affordable chronograph contenders in the industry. Clicking that pusher and listening to the chronograph engage and run is among one of the sweetest sounds to enthusiasts who get their hands on an El Primero. The ability to time 1/100th of a second may prove to be a useful utility for Café Racers and Additionally the watch has a generous 50-hour power reserve.
For the strap, Zenith opted for their oily nubuck military green leather with an inside rubber lining for comfort and longevity. Apparently it’s meant to exude a resolutely “stealth-biker attitude.” The strap has white stitching, a titanium buckle, and actually looks good on the watch.
