The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Antoine De Saint Exupéry” Story

The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII Edition “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” of course features a brown dial and typical calfskin strap – the latter inspired by the flying suit worn by the French author and pilot. An engraving on the back of the watch depicts a Lockheed P-38 Lightning, the aircraft in which writer and flying pioneer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry took off on what would be his last reconnaissance flight over the south of France on 31 July 1944. In both form and function, this watch reflects the ideal established by classic pilot’s watches. Like cockpit instrumentation, the clearly organized dial is reduced to essentials, and legibility is a top priority. The watch, which is water-resistant to 6 bar, is powered by an automatic 35111-calibre movement, meets the requirements of professional pilot’s watches in terms of precision and has a 42-hour power reserve. With its soft-iron inner case, it is optimally shielded against the influence of magnetic fields.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Many children and young people do not have access to a proper education. Their chances of success on the job market are therefore low and they cannot properly integrate in society. The Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation is dedicated to helping them. The charitable organization was founded in 2008 by the descendants of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry to uphold his humanist legacy. IWC Schaffhausen has been a partner of the foundation since 2006 and regularly releases special edition Pilot’s Watches in honour of Saint-Exupéry. Part of the proceeds from the sale of these watches goes to support a number of different school and education projects. The watches feature a signature tobacco brown dial and a brown calfskin strap with cream-coloured quilted stitching. The unmistakable design is reminiscent of the flight suit worn by Saint-Exupéry during his reconnaissance missions.
