Description

The Zenith Pilot Chronograph, Ref 03-2117-4002-23-C704, is a 42mm, satin finish, stainless steel, Pilots watch. Powered by Zenith's famed “El Primero” movement, the Pilot Chronograph has a vintage aesthetic, with its oversized hands and larger sub-dials, along with the rectangular pushers and large crown. With a case height of only 12.5mm and a brown alligator leather strap with a pin-style buckle, the Pilot Chronograph is an excellent instrument watch that wears comfortably, and elegantly on the wrist.

The History:

If not for the foresight of Charles Vermot, there would be no modern Zenith El Primero movements today. The company was sold and made the move to manufacturing quartz-based movement timepieces. After being ordered to sell the metal materials, including the dies, machining tools & presses, Vermot chose to hide everything needed to restart production on the El Primero movement inside the factory in a loft area. When Zenith was approached by Rolex, years later, to produce a mechanical automatic chronograph movement for their Daytona model, Vermot had everything needed to begin production. Shortly after, Zenith began production again of its own mechanical watches using this magnificent movement.

The Watch:

The Zenith Pilot Chronograph has a 42 mm satin finish stainless steel case, with polished bevels on the lugs, as well as the rectangular “lozenge” style pushers. Powered by the El Primero Calibre 4002B movement, which is visible through the sapphire crystal exhibition back, the Pilot Chronograph has a 50-hour power reserve. The matte black dial and sub-dials have a white printed minute, seconds, and fraction of seconds track. The raised flange on the dial has a telemeter track printed at the edge of the dial.

The Details:

This Zenith Pilot Chronograph is in good condition. There are slight wear markings on the satin finish of the case and case back, which are visible in photos. The alligator leather strap also shows some wear. It comes with original boxes, manual, stickers, and hangtag, as well as International Warranty Card and an additional Zenith brown alligator leather strap.
