Montre d’aviateur chronographe “The Last Flight”

The French have all read and enjoyed Le Petit Prince by famous pilot and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The poetic and philosophical story published in 1943 is an integral part of French culture. However, few people know that its author died during a reconnaissance flight off the coast of Marseille in 1944. In tribute to Saint-Exupéry’s last flight, IWC has designed a special edition available in three different versions. The watch features a 46mm chocolate brown ceramic case housing a self-winding in-house calibre which brings to life the time functions in the centre, small seconds at 6 o’ clock, chronograph hour and minute counter at 12 o’ clock and date at 6 o’ clock. These features are displayed on a chocolate dial to match the case with rhodium or gold-plated (subject to model) Super LumiNova® coated Arabic hour numerals and hands. Price: 14,500 CHF (ceramic and titanium) – 24,000 CHF (ceramic and red gold) – 32,000 CHF (ceraminc and platinium)
