Pioneer Type 20 Hollow Watch Westime Special Limited Edition Launched By Zenith

On the evening of November 1, local time, Zenith Global President Aldo Magada and Westime Chairman Greg Simonian held an exclusive dinner in Beverly Hills, revealing the Pilot Type 20 skeleton watch Westime special limited edition. The watch is limited to 3 pieces and is only available at the Westime boutique for a price of $ 238,000. The VIP attending the dinner party experienced a sapphire crystal theme night event, watched the ice sculpture model of the watch, enjoyed dinner under the bright glass dome like sapphire, and enjoyed the music played by the transparent piano.

   The new Pilot Type 20 skeleton watch Westime Special Limited Edition showcases superb craftsmanship and watchmaking technology, using the legendary 5011K movement to create a truly masterpiece of ethereal architecture. The famous 5011K pocket watch movement is completely hollowed out to present a complete picture of the superior mechanism, while avoiding compromising its precise and reliable performance. Since its introduction in the 1960s, the 5011K movement has been known for its exceptional accuracy. In addition to watches and pocket watches, this movement is also equipped on the marine astronomical clock.

   The watch is equipped with a sawtooth crown, which allows pilots to easily adjust it even when wearing gloves. The dial is equipped with standard gold hour and minute hands, and the top is coated with a SuperLuminova fluorescent layer to ensure excellent reading at night. With the hollow and solid blue Arabic numeral time scales (6 and 12 o’clock), it indicates basic and complex functions. The new Pilot Type 20 skeleton watch Westime Special Limited Edition conforms to this series of DNA, showing the unique identity of Zenith Pilot’s Watch.
