The Big Pilot’s Watch Perpetual Calendar Edition “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” and the Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” both feature the same tobacco brown dials and brown calfskin straps with creamy white ornamental seams. In this way, they pay tribute to the extraordinary life’s work of this great humanist. Part of the proceeds from sales will go to the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation. The perpetual calendar displays not only the cycles of the moon but also the seconds, minutes, hours, date, day, month and year in four digits. Until 2100, the differing lengths of the months and even the leap days in the Gregorian calendar are all factored in without the need for a correction. Powered by two barrels, the IWC-manufactured 52610 calibre has a 7-day power reserve and supports nine functions and displays. The rotor is made of solid 18-carat red gold. To the right, an engraving stating ONE OUT OF 750 indicates the special edition. The Double Chronograph in an edition of 1,000 features a split-seconds hand that permits the precise recording of two different times within a given minute. With its soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields and sapphire glass secured against sudden falls in pressure, the watch has all the credentials of a watch designed for flying.
