A Special Edition IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVII “Le Petit Prince” For The Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was a famed early 20th century writer with a passion for flying. His famous works, “The Little Prince”, “Southern Mail” and “Night Flight” are read even today (I’ve read them, now my kids are reading them!). This year, IWC is releasing a special Mark XVII pilot’s watch to celebrate the the 70th anniversary of what is Saint-Exupéry’s most famous work, Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince).

It is a limited edition of 1,000 pieces with the expected retail price of USD5,400 per unit. The watch is 41 mm wide and 11 mm thick stainless steel case.

The solid case-back has a nice image of the “Little Prince”.

Love to have one as it does have a historical link to a famous author and book that I personally read. Unfortunately, the steep price does put a brake on the idea!
