IWC Big Pilot Antoine de St Exupéry Platinum edition

Found on watch forums and I love it!

Homage to Antoine de Saint Exupéry

The fourth special edition pilot’s watch commemorating Antoine de Saint Exupéry completes the collection of exclusive timepieces designed by IWC to honour this renowned aviator and humanist. While the earlier special edition watches in this collection all focused on a selected literary work with flying as their theme, this edition is dedicated to author’s entire literary oeuvre. Saint Exupéry was born on 29 June 1900 in Lyon and disappeared at age forty-four during a reconnaissance flight over southern France when his plane was shot down and crashed into the sea. IWC CEO Georges Kern is greatly looking forward to the auction: “This reverence of Antoine de Saint Exupéry’s life’s work in true aviator spirit is the crowning event in our four-part homage. The person who ultimately owns this prestigious timepiece will not only enjoy the distinction it embodies but also, through its purchase, can improve the developmental opportunities for needy children in Madagascar.”

IWC and Antoine de Saint Exupéry

IWC Schaffhausen, the Swiss watch manufacturer, founded a partnership with Société Civile pour l’OEuvre et la Mémoire d’Antoine de Saint Exupéry in 2005, and since then the two organisations have launched a number of joint projects. The series of IWC special edition watches honouring Antoine de Saint Exupéry was launched in 2006 with the Pilot’s Watch Chrono-Automatic. In 2007, the Pilot’s Watch Automatic followed, and in 2008 the series continued with the Pilot’s Watch UTC. How the proceeds from the auction are used is decided in cooperation with the Société Civile pour l’OEuvre et la Mémoire d’Antoine de Saint Exupéry, which ensures that the donation reflects values held dear by Saint Exupéry.
