For three years, the Swiss watchmaker IWC has launched special edition watches with the theme of The Little Prince described by Anthony Saint Exupery. This year, IWC also launched a watch that pays tribute to the ‘Little Prince.’ Today’s Watch House brings you a special edition of the Little Pilot’s Watch, the Little Pilot, which is decorated with the original colors of the Little Blue Special Edition, the night blue dial, the brown calfskin strap, and the back engraving. The official watch model: IW500916.
The collection launched under the name of the Little Prince is marked by a night blue dial and beige stitched calfskin strap. Leather straps are now brand-new from the Santoni brand-these two features turn sporty and elegant timepieces into unusually eye-catching highlights. Elegant blue and chic design make the watch more elegant and refined.
IWC Large Pilot’s Watch ‘Little Prince’ Special Edition IW500916
The watch is made of stainless steel, and the 46 mm diameter model makes the watch look wide. The blue dial is superb and deep, very charming. The watch comes with an elegant and comfortable calfskin strap. Elegant watches and exquisite designs contain precision and excellence.
Chic design with exquisite appearance and easy to grasp
The steel crown of the watch is specially designed, and the round crown is decorated with delicate pits, which is not only beautiful, but also easy to grasp. The IWC logo is engraved on the crown, highlighting the brand’s style in the details.
Calf leather strap for comfortable wearing
The leather strap is made of calf leather, and the soft and tough material makes the watch more comfortable to wear; while the edges of the strap are stitched with white stitching, which is exquisite and elegant, adding a striking highlight to the watch. The strap is fitted with a folding pin buckle.
Polished fine steel case with sleek lines
The stainless steel case is sturdy and stable, and it has a soft iron inner case, which can effectively protect the movement from extreme magnetic fields. The surface of the case is carefully polished to give it a fine and beautiful texture, while the bezel is polished to give it a smooth and beautiful appearance. The case reflects a silver metallic luster.
Elegant and simple blue dial
The round blue dial of the watch is simple in style and exquisite in design. The superb deep blue tri-color dial has radial patterns, while the large luminous white propeller hands and Arabic numerals are set against a dark background to ensure fast reading in all light conditions. The power reserve is displayed in the form of a small dial at three o’clock and a date display window at six o’clock.
Swirl-shaped power reserve indicator small dial
The small dial at the three o’clock position of the blue dial is the watch’s power reserve indicator. The movement equipped with this watch can provide the watch with a seven-day power reserve. White and red Arabic numerals are used as scales; the small dial is detailed with delicate swirling patterns.
Date display in black text on white
The date display window at the six o’clock position of the dial is displayed with black Arabic numerals on a white background, blue, white, and black. The three colors have obvious color differences, making it easy to read the date.
Cast with the case, the lugs with curved design are exquisite and beautiful
The watch’s lugs are small and exquisite, and they are cast in one piece with the case for smooth connection and beautiful lines. The watch’s lugs present a natural arc, which is not only beautiful, but also makes the watch fit more closely to the wrist.
Engraved stainless steel buckle
The watch strap is equipped with a folding pin buckle. The folding opening and closing design is not only simple but also more elegant in appearance; and the use of the pin buckle can be more necessary to adjust the length of the strap. The buckle is engraved with the IWC logo.
The beautifully decorated sealed back is engraved with the image of the little prince
The special edition pilot’s watch is decorated with ‘EDITION LE PETIT PRINCE’ engraved on the closed case, and the image of the little prince wearing a coat and carrying a sword drawn by Anthony Saint Exupery in the 1940s. Inside the case is an IWC-made 51111-made movement. The spring-loaded oscillating weight and Pellerton pawl winding system provide a power reserve of more than 7 days in the shortest time.
Summary: IWC continues to launch special edition watches with the Little Prince as the main body. This is an opportunity to commemorate one of the highest-selling works in the history of literature written by the legendary writer, pilot and adventurer Saint Exupery. The bright color application and elegant and exquisite watch design make the watch possess elegant elegance, while the excellent movement is a powerful guarantee of precision. This watch deserves to be called ‘special’.
