<<"Only concern is Day 1, I land in Zurich at 8:35 am and after the customs,immigration by the time I reach Luzern it might be 12 pm.">>
You have clearly studied the process of getting into Switzerland. The Zürich airport is fairly fast... not quite up to Singapore standards, but close.
Are you coming from a Schengen Country, or will you have to go through passport contreol...normally not much of an issue, but it can take a few minutes.
With luck you could be on the 0917, surely the 1018, which gets you to Luzern at 1125.
You do not have to take a tour to go ujp onto Pilatus. Use the timetable for your exact dates and study the options. You should have no trouble getting up onto Pilatus.
The last trip up leaves Luzern at 1642, and there are frequent options before then. Check the timetable.
