IWC Pilot’s Watch Automatic Edition Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Posted by wristwatch on September 3, 2007


Antoine de Saint Exupéry published his novel “Courrier Sud” (Southern Mail) in Paris in 1929. In it, he reflected, among other things, on what was perhaps the happiest time of his life: in Strasbourg and Le Bourget. The Pilot’s Watch Automatic Edition Antoine de Saint Exupéry from IWC reminds us of this significant period in the life of Saint Exupéry through its case back relief engraving. Colourful and artistic, it harks back to the original Saint Exupéry watch edition, but now has a power reserve display and a date display that is reminiscent of an altimeter. The limited edition of just 1929 copies provides another historical connection to “Courrier Sud”: 1178 watches in stainless steel, 500 in 18 carat rose gold, 250 in 18 carat white gold and just one in platinum – this will be auctioned off later with proceeds going to a good cause.
