Ever since Zenith has teamed up with the Rolling Stones back in 2014 they have made several special ‘Rolling Stones Tribute’ editions starting off with an El Primero Chronomaster 1969. Now adding the latest ‘tribute to the Rolling Stones’ watch in the shape of a limited edition of the Zenith Pilot Type 20.
Zenith Pilot Type 20 GMT Rolling Stones Tribute
Where previous versions mostly had modest details linking to the rock band you can’t miss them on this one. The typical Rolling Stones logo of the red lips and tongue on top of the British flag covers the entire dial. Just as the regular Pilot Type 20 watches this tribute watch has large numerals for the hour markers that are filled with SuperLuminova. Same goes for the typical Type 20 shaped hands to guarantee good readability in all conditions.
The 48 mm case on this Pilot Type 20 is made from titanium which is finished with a black DLC coating. Typical for the Pilot collection is the large ‘onion’ shaped crown. Matching the deep black colour of the case is the black ‘bund style’ strap that comes with contrasting red stitching, On the inside of the bund strap you will find an embossed Zenith logo which covers the view of the movement which sits behind a sapphire caseback on which you will find an engraved Rolling Stones logo.
The Zenith Pilot Type 20 GMT Rolling Stones Tribute is powered by the automatic Calibre Elite 693 which has at least 50 hours of power reserve.
