Flying Passion And Passion Zenith Pilot Pilot Watch Series

‘ZENITH is a brand destined to be born for pilots! In addition, with all the essential advantages of all watches in a beautiful case, you really should have a Zenith!’ This admiration comes from Moran According to Léon Morane, the pilot who set a record speed of more than 100 kilometers per hour for the first time in 1910 praised Zenith. Since the beginning of the 20th century, due to the vigorous development of air transportation, aircraft and spacecraft across the ocean and over the polar regions have begun to appear, and the demand for high-precision instruments on aviation tools has increased. Zenith was one of the first manufacturers to produce aircraft instruments. Zenith watches perfectly interpret the grand ambitions that inspire pilots to fight in the sky. The brand’s timers and watches are accurate and reliable, and they accompany pilots to sail thousands of miles, reflecting their ambition to conquer adversity, accurate control of distance and the ambition to transcend themselves.
     The instruments made by Zenith meet the technical requirements of the aviation industry: not only can withstand temperature changes, magnetic field changes and body vibrations, but also they are accurate, reliable, durable, clear and easy to read. The Zenith Pilot’s Watch is not only an in-flight instrument, but also a good helper for pilots, and strives to protect the safety of pilots. Because of this, in the 1930s and 1940s, Zenith Type 20 pilot watches were used as airborne instruments on many aircraft, including the famous Caudron aircraft.
The pilot watches of the early 20th century were all the magnificent barbed crowns of Louis Blériot, as well as the luminous hands and numerals are typical characteristics of pilot watches at the time
     Today, Pilot watches inherit the style of their predecessors, showing the glory of the glorious era and the ambition to conquer the sky.

Crossing the English Channel
     Overlooking Sangatte Beach, it looks like a streamer on the horizon. Off the ground is the first step on an adventure. Throw the markers set along the coastline behind your head, and fly to the depths of the vault, perhaps there, the mist and the sky merge into one, and watch the waves of clouds disappear. Defeat strong winds, noise, fear and gravity. As small as a drop in the sea, as big as a giant bird. Like a dragonfly that challenges turbulence, gently glances over Cap Blanc Nez. Like a small spot in the blue sky, looking from a distance, it is smaller than a seagull. The steep cliffs of Port Dover attract attention. Fly towards the lush field of England on the other side. A 30-minute flight is as long as life. As far as I can remember, the strait is a vast world; it pays tribute to the most wonderful and original ‘heavier than air’ pilots.
