There is something magical about this antique Zenith Pilot

The condition for a watch that is almost a century old is truly spectacular! 

Thanks for looking,


What an amazing watch!

Is the dial radium?

The dial is enamel with original radium :) [nt]

These are truly beautiful

 By: Brandon Skinner : March 17th, 2020-14:26
Recently on IG I have found a few great accounts with collectors owning these pieces... perhaps one is you?

Years ago I was turned off to these because of the large crown, but now I find them quite charming. Thanks so much for sharing this!

These are super hard to come by and especially in this condition!

I’ve spent about 5-6 years on the hunt for one and found it after so much effort wink

Irresistible! . . .

. . . given a choice between your current version and this one, it's vintage all the way.  And I'm fully aware of how special Zenith's 5011K movement is . . .

Both have a charm in their own way!

The 5011k is also a very important piece to own if given the chance. I tend to be biased because I have a weakness for Pilot watches whether old or new. I’m always on the hunt for special/rare pieces and when I find what I like I never hesitate wink

Truly beautiful - an outstanding example :) [nt]

And a really cool watch!


Thanks! The crown is a joy to manipulate! [nt]

That's amazing! I wonder if that piece was the inspiration for the Chronoswiss Timemaster (had one and should have kept it). Thanks for sharing! [nt]

That piece is the inspiration of so many watches I guess ;) [nt]

This is one truly charming (and well-preserved) piece, you've found a real treasure there! Like they say (or at least I do), enamel is forever! :-) Enjoy. [nt]

A beauty, interesting, and rare

 By: Francoamerican : March 18th, 2020-12:33
And not rare because the print is red on one line but truly unique 

Which red printing are you talking about? [nt]

your watch on the other hand is like something from a museum.

Superb, my friend. Really superb. [nt]

Merci mon ami! J’espère que tu te portes bien la bas dans ce chaos! [nt]

C’est affreux comment les chiffres grimpent à pas de géant 

Ca va, ça va... Fais attention à toi aussi, mon ami. [nt]
