IWC BIG PI­LOT’S WATCH AN­NUAL CAL­EN­DAR EDI­TION

Golf Asia - - LUXE TIMEPIECES -

The IWC Big Pi­lot’s Watch An­nual Cal­en­dar Edi­tion “An­toine de Saint Ex­upéry” is lim­ited to 250 pieces: in 18-carat red gold with a brown dial and gold-plated hands (Ref. IW502706). The an­nual cal­en­dar dis­plays the month, date and day in three sep­a­rate win­dows and only re­quires ad­just­ment once a year, at the end of Fe­bru­ary. The IWC­man­u­fac­tured cal­i­bre 52850 boasts a Pel­la­ton wind­ing sys­tem with com­po­nents in vir­tu­ally wear-free ce­ramic and gen­er­ates a 7-day power re­serve in two bar­rels. A spe­cial fea­ture of this watch is the ro­tor in solid 18-carat red gold in the form of a Light­ning P-38: it was in this par­tic­u­lar model of air­craft that Saint-ex­upéry took off on a re­con­nais­sance flight across the Mediter­ranean from which he never re­turned. This watch is just the lat­est in a se­ries of time­pieces cre­ated by IWC to high­light its long-stand­ing part­ner­ship with the thhe An­toine de Saint-ex­upéry Foun­da­tion.
