More about the Zenith ‘Heritage Pilot Ton-Up’, an Iconic Watch for Legendary Motorbikes
Echoing the motorcycle spirit in the ‘engine’ powering of the Heritage Pilot Ton-Up edition, this magnificent model is created out of a slightly aged stainless steel, inspired by the patina of old silver pocket watches. About 45mm in diameter, the watch is elegantly masculine, is driven by exceptional mechanics and offers the automatic chronograph El Primero caliber 4069. This gives it an edge over others with an exceptional rate of 36,000 vibrations per hour and a one to tenth seconds precise chrono display.
With features such as centric hours and minutes, small seconds at nine o’clock and a chronograph, for more than fifty hours power reserve, the Zenith Heritage Pilot Ton-Up is extraordinary. Unique in terms of its detailing and finishing, the watch bracelet is created out of greasy nubuck, lined with rubber, which gives the masterpiece its vintage look and makes it all the more durable.
Equipped with a titanium pin buckle that ensures ease in terms of closing and safety, this exclusive work of art possesses precision due to its incredible mechanical movement. A closer look at the back of the watch, you’d be able to spot a ‘Salt Lake race’ styled engraving along with the Cafe Racer Spirit signature.
