A Tribute to the Café Racer Spirit Automatic El Primero column-wheel chronograph.
Zenith Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Ton-Up (Ref. 11.2432.4069 / 21.C900) has a dial designed in matt black. The large Arabic numeral indices and thick hands provide an image consistent with the Retro concept of the model, while offering excellent legibility in virtually any environment thanks to Super LumiNOVA phosphor application. The dial is laid out in Bi-Compax Chronograph style with no date display, which is a clever move for preserving the dial’s visual integrity and simplicity.
The model is powered by the Caliber 4069, which is a modern iteration of the legendary Caliber El Primero, which has been released back in 1969. Self-winding automatic chronograph movement beats at a frequency of 36.000vph, a signature feature of El Primero calibers, and offers a 50-hour power reserve when fully wound.
