Included in IWC’s ongoing collaboration using the beneficiaries of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, IWC just launched a brand new watch: the IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition. This special edition watch of just 1000 pieces is dependant on IWC’s regular Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph, obviously, but in addition to the apparent visual changes, it features a mechanical twist up its sleeve.
IWC’s exposure to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry stretches to the 2006 using the launch from the IWC Pilot’s Watch Chronograph “Night Flight,” that was a tribute to Saint-Exupéry’s novel of the identical name. Saint-Exupéry, if you’re not aware, would be a famous aviator and novelist, and accounts for works such as the aforementioned “Night Flight,” in addition to “Southern Mail” and “Wind, Sand and Stars”. However, he’s most likely most widely known for “The Little Prince,” or, in Saint-Exupéry’s native tongue, “Le Petit Prince.”
Prior to getting towards the mechanical twist, let us begin to see the visual changes: as you can clearly see in the photos, the IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition “Le Petit Prince” watch includes a striking blue dial usual for IWC’s other Saint-Exupéry exclusive edition watches. Additionally, it has got the three sub-dials, located on the regular IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph, with running seconds at 9 o’clock, and 30-minute and 12-hour counters at 12 and 6 o’clock, correspondingly.
Look more carefully, and something can place stars around the dial, so if you’re really bald eagle-eyed, you may observe that around the middle of the dial are seven cut-out stars and among them in gold. Underneath is really a gold disc that jumps at random over the seven stars every week. Even though the order where the disc jumps across per week is random, it’ll continue doing this random order each week. Consequently, the individual may use this unique mechanism to inform the day. The only issue is that she or he will have to psychologically assign a specific star to some day to have the ability to achieve this.
Following within the tradition of IWC’s special edition Saint-Exupéry watches, the caseback includes a unique design. Within this situation (pun unintentional), the situation back from the IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition “Le Petit Prince” features seven stars, each representing among the planets the Little Prince visited and it is inhabitant: the king, the vain man, the drunkard, the businessman, the lamplighter, the geographer, and also the rose.
Within the watch beats IWC’s quality 79420, that is a modified form of the venerable Valjoux 7750. The movement beats at 28,800 bph featuring a split-second chronograph complication having a power reserve of 44 hrs.
Individuals who found the standard IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph watches a touch too big will gladly discover the situation from the IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition “Le Petit Prince” is slightly smaller sized at 44mm wide across. The situation is made in stainless and it has a water proofing rating of 60 meters. The very is azure with anti-reflective coating on sides.
