Zenith Heritage Pilot Cafe Racer Spirit Watch Hands-On
On the rear of the Zenith Heritage Pilot Cafe Racer Spirit watch is a deep etching of a cafe racer on his motorcycle. This is similar to previous Pilot watch models that had images of vintage biplanes, etc. on the rear of the case. In fact, this caseback element is the only "cafe racer" part of the watch in terms of anything related to the visual composition of the watch. Again, my personal preference is to merely ignore the attempted connection between this pilot-style watch and enthusiast vintage motorcycle racing, as it feels a bit arbitrary - but it doesn't really take away from my appreciation of the watch in general. I am actually curious to know what people who do consider themselves to be modern cafe racers think about the Zenith Heritage Pilot Cafe Racer Spirit watch, and if they feel that Zenith has effectively reached their target demographic with this model.
