For the seventh time, copy IWC watches for men have created a special edition in honour of the best-selling novella “The Little Prince” and immortalized it on the back of the watch. On the front side of the watch, three separate windows at “12 o’clock” show the month, day and date. The advance mechanism requires adjustment only once a year. The timepiece has a power reserve of seven days.
For the world-famous poet and author of “The Little Prince”, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, poetry and technology, writing and flying were two sides of the same coin. Now the fake Pilot’s Watches Annual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince” brings these two worlds together. On the front side of the watch, the annual calendar displays the month, the date and the day of the week in three separate windows.
Its advance mechanism automatically takes the length of individual months into account, but not the two differing lengths of the month of February or the leap years. Once a year, therefore, at the end of February, it requires manual correction via the crown. The reverse side shows the little prince staring in amazement at the sky. He stands on a tiny planet, which in its entirety forms the rotor and revolves eccentrically around its axis. The prince and his planet are made of solid red gold. The elegant special replica edition of IWC will be restricted to just 250 watches in 18-carat red gold. Thanks to power from two barrels, the IWC-manufactured 52850 calibre supplies the higher torque necessary to drive the three display discs in the annual calendar. The barrels also provide sufficient energy to keep the watch running for a week when fully wound.
