THE STORY

The Big Pilot’s Watch Annual Calendar Edition “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” with an 18-carat red gold case is a special edition with a unique design that commemorates the author and pilot with the letter “A” for Antoine on the dial, the tobacco-brown colour of the dial and the calfskin strap inspired by his flight suit. This timepiece features an annual calendar, which shows the month, date and day in three separate windows. The advance mechanism automatically takes the length of individual months into account and requires manual correction via the crown once a year at the end of February. The in-house 52850 calibre has two barrels to provide the higher torque required to drive the three display discs of the annual calendar. In addition, when fully wound, the twin barrels supply enough energy for a full 7 days’ power reserve. The sapphire-glass back provides a view of the exquisite movement, the rotor in the shape of a plane and the various decorations on the plates and bridges.

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.

Calibre Family 52000

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.

Annual calendar

Annual calendar

The annual calendar is an attractive complication that shows the month, date and day in three separate windows on the dial. This complication automatically takes into account the differing lengths of individual months. It took 5 years to design.
