A replica watch in a limited edition in honor of the work of Saint-Exupéry. And the best is only visible in the back reserved for the lucky owner.
We are sure that the IWC Replica loves at least two things: the work of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince, and the annual calendars. Presented for the first time in the renovated Portuguese collection, last year, this complication has now been chosen for this special edition of the French author’s work. One more. The seventh!
The reason is simple: poetry and technology, write and fly are all sides of the same coin in the life and work of Saint-Exupéry. And for the IWC could blow this spirit in a timepiece is wonderful. Especially if it is an aviator replica watches collection, like the Big Pilot.
In front of the clock then we find the three sub dials of the annual calendar, which shows the month, date and day of the week. An annual schedule takes into account the length of every month except February, because of leap years. So, once a year – but only once a year – we must set the clock. The display is in a “deep” blue, but in the back we find the most poetic side of the watch, with the rotor to take the form of the Little Prince and his small planet in a drawing the same as the creator of the work, to look for a starry sky. The Prince and the planet are made of gold, as well as the edit box, limited to 250 watches.
The Big Pilot Annual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince”, which is why, for this hidden nature of a ‘guilty pleasure’, but with special emphasis on pleasure. The price is 36,900 euros.
The range of swiss replica watches Big Pilot was all renewed this in and presented at the International Exhibition of Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva earlier this year. Before being disruptive, the IWC decided to adjust the small details, like he had done the previous year with his Portuguese collection, giving them above all a more vintage character.
