As Zenith marks the golden anniversary of its legendary El Primero chronograph movement this year, it also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Trinidad cigar. The two companies have previously collaborated on Cohiba-themed limited editions and are now expanding the partnership to the Trinidad brand.
Presented at last month’s 21st Habanos Festival in Havana, the new 45 mm Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Trinidad Edition comes in three variations: rose, yellow, and white gold, each limited to 50 pieces. The rich brown dials with contrasting sub-dials display large beige luminescent Arabic numerals, a distinctive tobacco leaf pattern, as well as Zenith and Trinidad logos. You’ll also recognize Trinidad’s signature logo on the textured, Havana brown calfskin leather straps lined with rubber bearing the same motif. In addition, the case back is engraved with the Trinidad 50th Anniversary logo.
