The Zenith Pilot Type 20 Hommage á Louis Blériot wristwatch sports an authentic meteorite dial


Watch-making is perhaps one of the most intricate arts of the modern world, producing specimens like this beautifully crafted wrist essential from the house of Zenith. Called the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Hommage á Louis Blériot, this wristwatch is absolutely awe-striking. Sporting an extremely well-sculpted case in sapphire, with an 18kt white gold bezel, crown and lugs; this watch measures in at 60mm x 18.5mm. The 47mm AR-coated sapphire crystal crowns this timepiece while a sapphire adorns its back too. The watch is water resistant to 30 meters.

The watch’s movement is the Swiss manual-wind Zenith in-house, pocket-watch caliber 5011k. The movement uses 19 jewels, 18,000 vph and boasts of a power reserve of 48 hours. The movement measures 50mm x 10mm while the watch comes with a meteorite dial with Arabic numerals and a SuperLuminova coating. The dial is perhaps one of the most interesting features of the watch, given that it’s made from the Muonionalusta asteroid discovered in 1906! To keep this Zenith Pilot watch firmly on your wrist, the manufacturers have included a black alligator leather strap, adding to its luxury quotient. This, along with an 18kt white gold pin buckle tops off this magnificent watch.
