Embodying top-flight craftsmanship and watchmaking techniques, the new Pilot Type 20 Squelette raises the legendary Calibre 5011K to the rank of a true masterpiece of ethereal architecture.
This famous pocket-watch movement has been entirely skeletonised in order to reveal the exceptional mechanism, while avoiding any compromise in terms of its resistance and reliability. This construction is ‘airy’ in two key respects. On the one hand, its skeleton-working stems from a particularly demanding and meticulous art performed using the historical bocfil (tiny hacksaw) technique that stems from a tradition of more than 200 years of workmanship.
