Little Prince And Iwc Large Pilot Watch ‘little Prince’ Special Edition Pilot’s Watch Chronograph ‘little Prince’ Special Edition Mark Xviii Pilot Watch ‘little Prince’ Special Edition ###- –

For three years, the Swiss watchmaker IWC has launched special edition watches with the theme of The Little Prince described by Anthony Saint Exupery. This year-in addition to the special edition of the large pilot calendar ‘Little Prince’-three non-limited edition pilot watches are also decorated with a special edition of the ‘Little Prince’ night blue dial, brown calfskin strap and engraved on the bottom : Large Pilot’s Watch “Little Prince” Special Edition, Pilot’s Watch “Little Prince” Special Edition and Mark XVIII Pilot’s Watch “Little Prince” Special Edition.

Big Pilot’s Watch ‘Little Prince’ Special Edition (Model: IW500916)

   In the fairy tale ‘The Little Prince’ written by Anthony Saint Exupery, the fox said: ‘Fixed customs are essential.’ ‘What is a ‘fixed custom’?’ Asked the little prince. The fox replied, ‘It can make a day or a small day
   Become different. ‘——The launch of the special edition of The Little Prince is now a fixed practice of IWC. The Little Prince was published in New York in 1943, at the time of Saint Exupery’s exile. This book later became The most prestigious work by the French writer and pioneer of flying. The book has since been translated into more than 270 languages ​​and 150 million copies have been sold worldwide.

   This year, the non-limited edition ‘Little Prince’ special edition includes three pilot watches: the large pilot watch ‘Little Prince’ special edition (model: IW500916), the pilot chronograph watch ‘Little Prince’ special edition (model: IW377714 ). Two watches were launched last year. The dial has been slightly changed to continue with the Santoni calfskin strap. In addition, there is a new version of the Mark XVIII Pilot’s Watch ‘Little Prince’ (model: IW327004).

Series logo: night blue dial

   The collection launched under the name of the Little Prince is marked by a night blue dial and beige stitched calfskin strap. Leather straps are now brand-new from the Santoni brand-these two features turn sporty and elegant timepieces into unusually eye-catching highlights. In addition, the special edition pilot’s watch is decorated with ‘EDITIONLEPETITPRINCE’ engraved on the case bottom, and the image of the little prince wearing a coat and carrying a sword drawn by Anthony Saint Exupery in the 1940s. This large pilot’s watch is also based on the historical large pilot’s watch from 1940: the historical number ‘9’ omitted from the new large pilot’s watch in 2002 is now back to its established position, and the indicating arrow is back ’12 o’clock’ below the minute circle. The luminous white propeller pointer and Arabic numerals against the dark background ensure fast reading time in all light conditions. Both of these give the pilot a unique look. All three timepieces have the typical qualities of a functional watch: precision, functionality and reliability.

   The special edition of the small pilot’s watch ‘Little Prince’ is equipped with IWC-made 51111 movement. The spring-loaded oscillating weight and Pellerton pawl winding system provide a power reserve of more than 7 days in the shortest time. But before the sophisticated power reserve drive train mechanically stopped the spool, this system provided only 168 hours of energy. Stopping the movement before the mainspring tension is completely exhausted can help eliminate the adverse effects of the constant decrease of the mainspring torque. This ensures that the accuracy of the watch remains the same throughout its operation. The power reserve display in the small dial accurately indicates the time remaining before the movement stops. The special edition of the small pilot’s watch ‘Little Prince’ has a date display at the ‘6 o’clock’ position, and is equipped with the central seconds hand necessary for flying watches. Its 46 mm stainless steel case is equipped with a soft iron inner case, which effectively protects the movement from extreme magnetic fields.

Pilot’s Watch Chronograph ‘Little Prince’ Special Edition (Model: IW377714)

   The Pilot’s Watch Chronograph ‘Little Prince’ Special Edition is the most sporty of the three pilot watches, but it never loses its elegance. The instrument-style appearance of this chronograph with a water resistance of 6 bar is reflected in the clearly structured minute ring, white hands and numbers, and the triangular logo. In order to improve legibility, the new model has omitted the triple date display and the dial is cleaner. Equipped with a sturdy 79320 chronograph movement, the watch can record up to 12 hours of segmentation and accumulated chronograph time. The soft iron inner shell is optimally resistant to external magnetic fields. Polished and satin-finished elements alternate on a large 43 mm stainless steel case.

   The Mark XVIII Pilot’s Watch ‘Little Prince’ Special Edition follows the tradition of IWC classic pilot watches in both form and function. The clearly structured dial is as streamlined as the cockpit dashboard to the core elements, with clear and easy to read as the top priority. As a result, the designers of IWC omitted the triple date display and decided to use a single date display. This watch is water-resistant to 6 bar and equipped with a 30110 automatic movement, which provides a 42-hour power reserve. In terms of accuracy and robustness, the Mark XVIII Pilot’s Watch “Little Prince” Special Edition, like the earlier models, meets a series of requirements for professional pilot watches. The Mark XVIII Pilot’s Watch also follows the tradition, equipped with a magnetically shielded soft iron inner case, and equipped with a glass mirror that can withstand the sudden pressure drop.

IWC and the Anthony Saint-Exupery Foundation

   Since 2005, IWC has partnered with the Anthony Saint-Exupery Foundation. The Foundation works closely with NGO Sipar to help build school libraries and mobile book buses in Cambodia and bring reading materials to remote and remote areas. Through this cooperation, and thanks to the support of IWC, two school buildings with integrated libraries were established in 2014, giving 1,200 children access to education. In addition, a schoolhouse in the village of Roluos in Siem Reap province has been established, which also has a library.

IWC and Special Edition “Little Prince”

   For three years, IWC has launched special edition watches with the theme of the Little Prince. IWC takes this as an opportunity to commemorate one of the highest-selling works in the history of literature written by the legendary writer, pilot and adventurer Saint Exupery. The Special Edition of the Little Prince (IW502802), a large pilot’s perpetual calendar watch produced in 2013, is the first watch with the theme of the Little Prince, followed by the special edition of the Mark 17 Pilot’s Watch ‘Little Prince’ (model : IW326506) to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the birth of this world-famous story. An IWC watch masterpiece unparalleled in the world-Platinum Edition Large Pilots’ Perpetual Calendar ‘Little Prince’ Special Edition (Model: IW502801) was sold at Sotheby’s auction house in Geneva for a record amount of 170,000. Thousands of Swiss francs were donated to the Anthony Saint Exupery Foundation, dedicated to spreading the humanitarian ideas of this famous French figure. The limited edition ‘Little Prince’ special edition series also includes the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Special Edition (model: IW377706), which was released in 2014, and the large pilot watch ‘Little Prince’ special model (model: IW500908). In 2015, IWC launched a special edition of the red gold model of the large pilot watch ‘Little Prince’ (model: IW500909), limited to 250 pieces. In the same year, IWC also created a new pilot’s chronograph watch ‘Little Prince’ special edition (model: IW371807), equipped with an innovative seven-star circular week display.
