Watches Wednesday: Zenith’s Trinidad Cigar 50th Anniversary Timepieces

Known as one of the world’s most premium cigars, the Trinidad 50 anniversary cigar, with its rich and aromatic flavour, is made at Cohiba’s El Laguito factory. In conjunction with this momentous occasion, Zenith has collaborated with Habanos S.A. on a special timepiece: the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Trinidad Edition. 

This 45mm timepiece recently made its debut at Cuba’s 21st Habanos Festival. Available in rose, yellow, or white gold cases, is powered by the El Primero column-wheel chronograph movement – one of the most accurate series-made chronograph calibre available, which, incidentally, also turns 50 this year. And, in the true spirit of a collaboration, these 50-piece Limited Editions come with the triple T Trinidad logo patterned Havana brown calfskin strap, with a protective rubber lining and its logo, on the underside. Even more special, is the platinum version of the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Trinidad Edition, which was auctioned off in Havana City, during the Habanos Festival.
