New IWC marks first flight of Saint-Exupery


IWC has created a watch to mark 100 years since the first flight of pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

2012 marks 100 years since Saint-Exupéry had his first flying experience as a boy aged 12 who was taken for a flight in the plane of pilot Gabriel Salvez.

IWC has been making pilot’s watches for 70 years now, and the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph Edition Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is the sixth special edition of its pilot watch.


The watch has been crafted in 18ct rose gold and limited to a run of 500 pieces. It has a tobacco-coloured dial and calfskin strap with cream-coloured quilted stitching.

The watch has been developed completely in house at IWCV and is fitted with the brand’s 89361 calibre movement.
