THE STORY

The seven hands, together with the date and day display, have been so skilfully integrated into the brown dial that the instrument look is emphasized without making the watch difficult to read. The double chronograph allows the user to record two separate times, precisely to the second, within any given minute. The 79420-calibre chronograph movement guarantees the mechanical perfection of the watch. The 44-millimetre stainless-steel case is painstakingly finished by hand. With its soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields and a sapphire glass secured against displacement by drops in pressure, the Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” has all the credentials of a watch designed for flying. This model comes with a brown calfskin strap from Santoni. 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.

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.

Double Chronograph

Double Chronograph

The rattrapante chronograph features an additional hand – the split-seconds hand – which makes it possible to record intermediate times. The split-seconds hand runs as a second hand under the chronograph seconds hand and can be stopped independently of it.
