Mint and brand new looking condition Zenith Pilot Big Date Special, automatic chronograph. It has had a full mechanical service by Zenith under its warranty and comes with the service receipt. The watch was purchased in this year from authorised Zenith dealers W Burford in Eastbourne in February 2013. The retail price of this watch is £5200. It comes complete with all boxes and paperwork including the stamped warranty. It is shown on a replacement strap but comes with the original mint condition origianl Zenith leather strap and pin buckle. The Pilot Big Date Special is one of the latest watches from the new Zentih collection and has only just arrived in the UK. It is of modern, balanced, and yet classical design. It is a highly legible clear and clean cut watch, with good legibility in terms of time reading, chronograph reading and date legibility as well. The Pilot Big Date Special honours the 1960 chronograph with its sober elegance and unimpeachable functionality.  Echoing the historic chronograph watch from the 1960-80s, the new Pilot Big Date Special has functionality as its guiding principle. Its steel case is a moderate 42 mm in diameter, with classically styled alternating polished and satin brushed finishes. The matt black dial, sandblasted five times, sets off the time displays, which visually are in perfect balance. The small seconds counter is at 9 o’clock, exactly opposite the 30 minute counter at 3 o’clock position. Both feature a snailed decoration. A pair of hands treated with black ruthenium and highlighted with Superluminova mark the hours and minutes in a decisively masculine and modern style. Their sporty, dynamic shape matches the refined graphic style of the Arabic numerals that pay simple and solemn tribute to those of the 1960 chronograph. Behind the scenes, the El Primero 4010 calibre ticks away with an exceptionally consistent beat. Its finishes can be seen through the sapphire caseback. The winding rotor is decorated with thin Côtes de Genève in the purest watchmaking tradition, and presents this movement as of much as a work of art as well as a technically brilliant piece of engineering. The movement is selfwinding and has a total diameter of 30 mm and thickness of 7.65 mm. it is constructed from a total of 306 parts and has 31 jewels with a cadence of the balance at 36,000 vph and a sizeable 50 hour power reserve. It has a sapphire crystal and sapphire crystal case back showing off the movement. The water resistance is 5 ATM. It comes on the barely used calfskin brown strap with hand sewn topstitching and signed pin buckle. Comes with all boxes, papers and warranty card. Dimensions are as follows. Width is 42 mm excluding crown, 46 mm including crown, lug to lug is 50 mm and thickness is 14 mm
