Shop all Zenith watches: http://bit.ly/2vclVdI Fans of the Zenith El Primero gain the a chance to fly their colors with the 2018 Zenith Pilot Tipo CP-2 USA Edition of 50 pieces. A limited edition Zenith model specifically for the United States market, this pilot's watch has been issued to mark Zenith's 2018 charitable donation to the Wounded Warrior foundation. The 2016 Zenith Pilot Cronometro Tipo CP2 limited edition paid tribute to the Italian military chronographs built by Zenith during the mid-to-late 1960s and provided to the Italian armed forces by dealer A. Cairelli of Rome. The 2017 Pilot Cronometro gained a flyback function, and today's Tipo CP-2 USA model offers the flyback chronograph capability in a US-themed red, white, and blue color palette. Zenith's Pilot chronograph measures 43mm in diameter and is constructed entirely from stainless steel. The 60-minute bezel is a bi-directional aviator's bezel that can provide a second timing display alongside the chronograph. The dial of the Cronometro Tipo CP2 includes a matte blue base, white Arabic numerals in the image of the vintage watch, and a dramatic red lacquered chronograph seconds hand. The appliqué Zenith star sits at 12 o'clock, and all printing is rendered in white. Super Luminova ensures night time visibility. Zenith fits the El Primero-powered Cronometro Tipo CP-2 USA with an El Primero caliber 405B 31-jewel automatic movement. It boasts a 36,000 vibration per hour beat rate, a 50-hour power reserve, column wheel chronograph action, and a twin-register chronograph display. The flyback function allows this El Primero caliber 405B to reset and restart without first stopping its action; this is ideal for timing events that occur in rapid succession such as aviation maneuvers. This Zenith watch is water resistant to 100 meters. A sapphire display caseback permits appreciation of the Swiss caliber and the lacquered American flag tribute applied to the Zenith star logo within the winding rotor. The use of a Kudu strap sets the USA Edition apart from most pilot's watches, which tend to employ calf leather. Rich, sueded, and dyed to match the watch, this Kudu strap is handsome and decadent. Its contrasting red and white binding stitching adds additional color, and the underside of the strap includes a sewn rubber inlay that ensures total comfort while protecting the strap from oil and perspiration of the wrist. A simple stainless steel pin buckle is employed. The Zenith Pilot Cronometro Tipo CP-2 USA Edition 03.2241.405/51.C915 is a Zenith El Primero chronograph encased in 43mm of stainless steel surrounding a blue dial on a blue leather strap. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, and flyback chronograph. The watch also measures 12.9mm in thickness and 52.2mm from lug-to-lug. For complete details, watch the full review!
