Brown dial and bracelet are the most important distinctive features of the special editions developed by IWC Schaffhausen to honor author and French pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Now, for the first time, two classics of the IWC Pilot family are available with the Saint Exupéry signature look: the Pilot Chronograph and the Pilot Mark XVIII.
The Pilot Chronograph Edition “Antoine de Saint Exupéry” features day and time display. The automatic rope system generates a power reserve of 44 hours and the numerals and hands have luminous coverings to ensure a good readability, even at night. Both watches also feature a recording of a Lightning P-38 from the back of the case. It was in this model of airplane that Saint-Exupéry left for a recognition flight of which never returned.
