On Tuesday night, Zenith Global CEO Aldo Magada and Westime President Greg Simonian hosted an exclusive dinner in Beverly Hills to reveal a 3-piece limited edition, the Zenith Pilot Type 20 Skeleton – Westime Limited Edition.
Haute clients that attended the unveiling of the new timepiece were treated to a sapphire-themed night featuring an ice sculpture replica of the timepiece. An elegant dinner was held underneath a sapphire-lit glass dome, accompanied by music performed on a transparent grand piano.
The transparent skeleton watch, housed in a sapphire case, elevates the classic Calibre 5011k to grander heights with a newly skeletonized architecture. The old movement was whittled down to its new form through an extremely delicate process that worked to preserve the aesthetic qualities of the watch, as well as its precise functionality.
The special Zenith Pilot Type 20 Skeleton features an aviation-inspired architectural motif with sleek lines that evoke aircraft turbines or wings, as well as hand-brushed white gold lugs. The timepiece also features all of the distinctive hallmarks of typical Zenith pilot watches. A broad ratcheted crown enables easy adjustment with bulky pilot gloves, while stylized hours and minute hands tipped with Superlumivova allow for excellent night visibility.
Finally, the watch features gold hands as well as hallowed and solid (at 6 and 12 o’clock) blue numerals.
The Zenith Pilot Type 20 Skeleton – Westime Limited Edition is limited to only three pieces and will be available at Westime boutiques at a price of $238,000.
