Description

Since 1868 Swiss watch manufacturers IWC Schaffhausen have been
creating masterpieces of haute horlogerie that combine precision
engineering with exclusive design. Over the years, their
straightforward, no-nonsense style has appealed to adventurers far and
wide—especially pilots.


Since the mid-2000s IWC has been
celebrating famed pilot and author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry through
their dashing Pilot’s Watches. This brand-new Antoine de Saint Exupéry
timepiece possesses a self-winding automatic movement and features the
Caliber 89361 and an impressive 68-hour power reserve.





Its stainless steel case, with a fixed stainless steel
bezel, measures 43 mm in diameter (excluding crown, pushers, and lugs),
is 12 mm in height, and rests upon a brown alligator leather strap with
white stitching and a tang buckle. This handsome timepiece possesses a
50 m / 5 atm water resistance, a screw-down crown, a scratch-resistant
mineral crystal, and an engraved case back that depicts Saint Exupéry’s
last plane, the Lightning P-38.





The luminous silver-tone hands, Arabic hour markers,
and white minute track are made prominent against the handsome brown
sunburst-patterned dial. There is a center seconds hand, a small seconds
at 6 o’clock, and a dual 60-minute/12-hour counter at 12 o’clock. A
date window can be found at 6 o’clock inside the small seconds counter.
This brand-new IWC Pilot’s Watch Antoine de Saint Exupéry has a retail
value of $14,100 and we are pleased to offer it here at significant
savings. Add it to your collection today.



By the way, we at Essence of Time recommend Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s excellent novel Night Flight from 1931, a book that chronicles the hair-raising activities of South American airmail pilots.



Standout feature(s): Impressive
68-hour power reserve; celebration of author and pilot Antoine de
Saint-Exupéry; case back engraved with Saint-Exupéry’s last plane.
