A few weeks ago, Zenith threw quite the shindig in Paris to celebrate their Pilot collection, and more specifically their Pilot Type 20. CEO Jean-Frédéric Dufour and daredevil skydiver Felix Baumgartner were on hand as well, and Mr. Dufour presented Mr. Baumgartner with the watch he’ll be wearing on his 22-mile-high jump tomorrow morning.

There was quite the spectacle as we filed into the Musée des Arts et Métiers on a cool night in Paris. The cavernous space was filled with Zenith-branded weather balloons and vintage-style aircraft, and the music and lights were nothing if not intense.
