Zenith has quickly built up its current Pilot collection of watches after starting with only one massive 57.5mm, provocative model. What you’re looking at here is the latest Zenith Pilot, which pays tribute to the Wright Brothers’ first heavier-than-air flight on Kitty Hawk beach in 1903. It is limited to (not surprisingly) 1,903 pieces, and Zenith has dubbed it the “Pilot Montre D’Aeronef Type 20 GMT 1903.” We anticipate a shortened nickname in the near future for that mouthful, but for now we’re going with “1903."
