Editor's Notes

IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN has issued a number of special-edition watches in tribute to writer and aviator Mr Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and this 'Big Pilot's' model references his most celebrated story - Le Petit Prince. Made from stainless steel, it's engraved with the novella's famous character on the reverse and complemented by a leather strap produced in collaboration with Santoni. It runs on an in-house 52110 calibre with an impressive seven-day power reserve and has a soft iron inner-case to protect against interference from magnetic fields. It's designed with a blue luminescent dial that houses a date window and handy display to denote how much power you have left.

We offer an eight-year warranty for all working parts and manufacturing faults for IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN watches. For more information, contact one of our experts by emailing
