A TRIBUTE TO A PILOT, POET AND PIONEER

On 31 July 1944, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry took off on what was scheduled to be his last reconnaissance flight in a Lockheed P-38 Lightning, heading for Grenoble. He never returned. In the year 2000, parts of a Lightning were discovered on the bed of the Mediterranean, later recovered and in 2004 conclusively identified as Saint-Exupéry’s reconnaissance plane. Now, 70 years after Saint-Exupéry’s last flight, IWC honours the celebrated author and humanist with three limited-edition versions of the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition “The Last Flight”. The watch, which is equipped with the IWC-manufactured 89361 calibre, is largely tobacco brown in colour, a feature as typical of the “Saint Ex” special editions as the calfskin strap with cream-coloured quilted stitching. The case, made of extremely light and rugged silicon nitride, is a world-first from IWC. The push-buttons, crown and case back are made of titanium, 18-carat red gold or platinum. The engraving on the reverse side shows a likeness of Saint-Exupéry in his flying suit together with the inscription “The Last Flight – 1944 / 2014”.

reference 3880

The special edition “The Last Flight” is the same tobacco colour as the flying suit Saint-Exupéry used to wear. The case, made of high-performance ceramic, is exceptionally robust. Developed and manufactured by IWC in-house, the 89361 calibre is a technical masterpiece. The sapphire glass has anti-reflective coating on both sides and is secured against drops in pressure, while the case is water-resistant to 6 bar.
