The Trinidad Habanos, the connoisseur’s cigar, was first produced in Cuba 50 years ago by Cohiba, partner to Zenith. To mark the event, the watchmaker is launching a trio of Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Trinidad Edition watches.

The Trinidad 50 anniversary cigar is made at Cohiba’s exclusive El Laguito factory; this Habano is renowned for its rich, aromatic and medium flavour. Embodying all the richness of this iconic cigar, the Pilot Type 20 Chronograph Trinidad Edition appears in a trio of 45mm rose, yellow and white gold cases, each available in 50-piece limited editions and engraved on the back with the Trinidad 50th Anniversary logo.

Beating inside is the automatic El Primero column-wheel chronograph movement, a descendant of the world’s most accurate series-made chronograph calibre that also turns 50 in 2019. It drives the central hours and minutes, small seconds and chronograph functions, displayed on a clearly legible dial bearing oversized beige luminescent numerals, a distinctive tobacco leaf pattern as well as Zenith and Trinidad logos.

These collector’s items are teamed with Trinidad logo patterned Havana brown calfskin leather straps featuring a protective rubber lining with the same logo on the inner side, secured by a pin buckle in 18-carat rose, yellow or white gold matching the case.
