Zenith Pilot Doublematic WorldTime Watch

With three new Pilot models out in 2012, this is the year of the “Pilot” watch for Zenith.  Shown here is the Zenith Pilot Doublematic, featuring the “world time” function (seen on the outer flange of the dial).

In addition to the world time capability, there is also a chronograph and an alarm function.   The alarm is activated and set by a push-piece button and crown at 8 o’clock. On the dial, a pierced Ruthenium black and red hand shows the time set for the alarm, while an opening at 8:30 confirms that it is turned on (alarm power reserve also shown).

The Doublematic is available in either steel or pink gold. For complete details see the technical data listed below.
