Adding the timezoner function to IWC’s Pilot watches in Le Petit Prince design for the first time, this twenty-two-jewel timepiece is yet another decorous accretion to other Le Petit Prince themed special editions.
IWC Schaffhausen newly presents a timezoner function to the pilot’s watches in Le Petit Prince family, not long after a recent announcement of the luxury watchmaker IWC’s virtual online boutique.
This latest addition features a 46-millimetre, true-to-type stainless steel case, a brown calfskin strap and of course, a conventionally ravishing blue dial in a classic midnight shade. The brand new watch also comprises of a city ring made of blue ceramic, as well as numerals and hands beautifully coated in gleaming white.
Another paramount feature is a “Pellaton automatic winding” technology where it’s designed to minimise the friction and deterioration sustained from consistency in usage. Plus, this remarkable, aviation-focused pilot’s watch timezoner edition “Le Petit Prince” remains its standard with a glass secured against displacement by drops in air pressure, followed by a screw-in crown, aiding in with a 6-bar water resistance.
The watch is powered by the IWC-manufactured 82760 calibre, a frequency of 28,800 vph/4 Hz and a 60-hour power reserve.Besides, a case back display is a miniature decoration of the little prince caricature through a clear, lucent glass. And yes you’ve guessed it right, a stark figure of 1,500 pieces are bound to exist – just what we’d expect from a limited edition, I suppose.
