To celebrate this year’s The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, Zenith has created a limited and special edition of the Pilot Ton-Up bearing the DGR logo.
About DGR: The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is global charity event raising funds and awareness for prostate cancer research and men’s mental health programs on behalf of charity partner the Movember Foundation. It is a mixture of men and women, classic and vintage styled motorbikes and dapper style. A day where all gentlefolk are distinguished worldwide, riding classic styled motorbikes for a cause. It is a day of spreading merriment as well as working together to support the health of men.
The new model is offered on a stainless steel case specially treated for “aged look” like the one on the Cafe Racer model. The case measures 45mm x 14.7mm and it features an AR-coated sapphire crystal on the front side. The caseback is stainless steel as well bearing a figure of Dapper Style motorbike racer and Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride engraving. The big onion shaped winding crown and flat type chronograph pushers are the other common features with the Cafe Racer model.
The dial is finished in aged anthracite color with Bi-Compax chronograph lay out. The indices are Arabic numerals and hands are designed in vintage form. There is a Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride logo placed at 6 o’clock side of the dial.
Zenith Pilot Ton-Up DGR runs with the brand’s legendary El Primero movement. Caliber Ref. 4069 features 35 jewels and offers 50h power reserve while beating at 36000vph.
The new model is offered on a hand stitched light brown leather strap with Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride logo and a stainless steel buckle with aging treatment like the case.
The timepiece is limited to 5 pieces only.
