IWC – Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition “Antoine De Saint Exupéry” – IW371808
The seven hands, together with the date and day display, have been so skilfully integrated into the brown dial that the instrument look is emphasized without making the watch difficult to read. The double chronograph allows the user to record two separate times, precisely to the second, within any given minute. The 79420-calibre chronograph movement guarantees the mechanical perfection of the watch. The 44-millimetre stainless-steel case is painstakingly finished by hand. With its soft-iron inner case for protection against magnetic fields and a sapphire glass secured against displacement by drops in pressure, the Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Edition ‘Antoine de Saint Exupéry’ has all the credentials of a watch designed for flying. This model comes with a brown calfskin strap from Santoni. An engraving on the back of the watch depicts a Lockheed P-38 Lightning, the aircraft in which writer and flying pioneer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry took off on what would be his last reconnaissance flight over the south of France on 31 July 1944.
