Editor's Notes

Limited to 250 pieces,IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN's 18-karat red gold 'Big Pilot's' watch pays homage to journalist and aviator Mr Antoine de Saint-Exupéry - the tobacco-brown leather strap is inspired by his flight suit, while the tonal dial is etched with his initial. Powered by a precise 52850 calibre mechanical movement, this piece features an annual calendar displaying the month, date and day in three separate windows, and has a power reserve that supplies seven days worth of energy. The sapphire-glass back showcases the internal rotor, which is exquisitely crafted to resemble a plane.
