THE STORY

The 46-millimetre Big Pilot’s Watch Edition “Le Petit Prince” features the characteristic blue dial which has become the signature trademark of IWC’s special editions in tribute of Antoine de Saint-Exupérys most famous literary work. The watch is powered by the IWC-manufactured 52110-calibre movement. It features an efficient Pellaton automatic winding system with parts made from black or white ceramic. With the help of two barrels, it builds up a reserve of 7 days. The display at “3 o’clock” provides an indication of the remaining power reserve. The Big Pilot’s Watch has a date display at “6 o’clock” and the central seconds essential in any watch used for flying. With its soft-iron inner case, it is optimally shielded against the influence of magnetic fields. This Pilot’s Watch has an engraving on the rear of the little prince with his cape and sword.

Petit Prince

Petit Prince

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s story “The Little Prince” has been translated into over 300 languages and is considered to be the most famous work written by the French flying pioneer and author. In the book, he tells of the journey of the little prince to seven planets, and of the inhabitants of these planets: the king, the vain man, the drunkard, the businessman, the lamplighter, the geographer and the rose to which the little prince returns after his odyssey. As part of the cooperation with the descendants of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, IWC has been creating exclusive special edition Pilot’s Watch models as tributes to the wonderful story since 2013. These models all feature a trademark blue dial. For Saint-Exupéry, writing and flying were two sides of the same coin, which makes these special editions – the perfect symbiosis of poetry and technology – fitting tributes to his life and work.

Calibre Family 52000

The twin barrels are the trademark feature of the 52000-calibre family. They supply the watches with sufficient energy for a 7-day power reserve and drive energy-sapping complications like the annual calendar and perpetual calendar.
