The latest IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph Edition by Swiss watchmakers IWC Schaffhausen is a tribute to the French aviator and poet Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The casing for the astounding time piece is made from 18-karat rose gold with anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal, measuring 43mm x 15.5mm in total.

Powering the time-telling work of art is the Swiss caliber 89361 movement which has 38 jewels and can reserve power for up to 68 hours due to IWC's chronograph flyback system.

The tobacco-hued, hand-stitched leather band complements the aesthetics of the gold casing, beautifully adding a rugged appeal to a luxurious accessory. Limited to only 500 pieces, the IWC Pilot's Watch Chronograph edition will be an eclectic, desired addition to any aficionado's watch collection.
