Pressing the pusher for a third time resets the chronograph: the second and minute hands return to the zero position. The key to this process is, as always, the six-tooth column wheel. Three different levers read the “instructions” from the columns and recesses on the wheel and pass the information on to the rest of the wheel train. You can watch this magnificent spectacle through my case back when working the pushers.
Finally, a few words about my looks that really reveal my poetic side. Just like all of IWC’s timepieces dedicated to Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s “The Little Prince”, my dial comes in a stellar midnight blue, which beautifully highlights my rhodium-plated hands, as well as my characteristic retro-style numerals. All of these features are complemented by my brown calfskin strap with a folding clasp and featuring beige seams. No wonder that as a Monopusher Edition “Le Petit Prince”, I’m not only considered one of the most refined types of chronographs but also a highly covetable item among watch collectors.
