PILOT’S WATCH PERPETUAL CALENDAR CHRONOGRAPH EDITION “LE PETIT PRINCE”
1300 808 135
The mechanically programmed perpetual calendar is the supreme achievement in the art of watchmaking. IWC’s perpetual calendar was originally designed in the early 1980s by ingenious watchmaker Kurt Klaus and has been continuously improved since then. It comprises 87 individual parts and will display the date, day, month, year in four digits and even the leap years for the next 577 years. All the displays are easily adjusted via the crown. Some models are supplied with an additional century slide, so the watch can continue showing the correct date until 2499. Other complications also run on the basis of the perpetual calendar, among them the perpetual moon phase display and the digital date display.
The IWC-manufactured 89630 calibre combines the perpetual calendar with a chronograph function. The calendar’s moon phase display is integrated with the chronograph totalizer at “12 o’clock”.
This complicated Pilot’s Watch is housed in an 18-carat 5N gold case. The special edition designed to honour “Le Petit Prince” features the typical midnight blue dial and is limited to just 250 watches.
