As part of this year’s important watch sale, Sotheby’s auctioned a unique red gold IWC special edition Pilot watch with a chronograph version of “Little Prince”. We look at the stainless steel version of the Children’s Book Inspiration Watch, this special edition is being auctioned to benefit the Antoine de Saint Exupery Youth Foundation. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, like the author of Le Petit Prince (en Français), is a passionate pilot who has authored numerous books on this subject.
It is difficult to find the “Le Petit Prince” watch the attraction, while in red gold, which is completely beautiful. The blue face has seven stars, as in a stainless steel model, a gold plate that “lights up” a random star every day. This is not too practical, because you have to allocate a star for the day – but this is not a practical part. Rather, the function is whimsical and unique – more of the style of this work.
The red gold case features seven stars and asteroids that access the planet’s inhabitants. And, if you forget it is a kind of “unique pieces” of the word is engraved on the back of the case. In addition, it has a brown calf leather strap and red gold buckle.
Watch has a 44 mm case, sapphire crystal and anti-reflective coating on both sides. Movement 79420 movement speed of 28,800 bph, 44-hour power reserve. It also has a waterproof rating of 6 meters, although we suspect that buyers will put this watch through a lot of diving. The stainless steel version (of which there are 1,000) went for $ 12,700. Although we did not auction estimates, the one-off red gold version of the suggested retail price of about 29,500 Swiss francs. High quality replica IWC watches for you to choose from!
