This bronze beauty from Zenith is a 2015 introduction in the brand’s Pilot collection. Zenith Pilot watches are among my favorites from the brand — they’ve done a really nice job with these watches, invoking functional aviator’s watches of the past with their large cases, highly legible dials, and oversize onion crowns (for easy handling). As for this particular watch, well, first and foremost it is defined by it’s 45mm bronze case. The neat thing about bronze is that it evolves over time, developing an irreproducible patina that adds a certain element of character to the watch. Of course you can see it is a very simple and highly legible time-only watch, with vintage style hands and hour numerals. Lastly, the watch has an in-house Zenith Elite caliber 679. This is an important upgrade from last year’s stainless steel version of this watch which I understand used a Sellita base caliber and was, for obvious reasons, not well received by Zenith fans (and is selling a a steep discount in the grey market right now).
