IWC Pilot Antoine de Saint Exupéry Edition Automatic Chronograph Stainless Steel Men’s Watch IW3878-06

Since 1868 Swiss watch manufacturers IWC Schaffhausen have been creating masterpieces of haute horlogerie that combine precision engineering with exclusive design. Over the years, their straightforward, no-nonsense style has appealed to adventurers far and wide—especially pilots.

Since the mid-2000s IWC has been celebrating famed pilot and author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry through their dashing Pilot’s Watches. This special edition Antoine de Saint Exupéry timepiece possesses a self-winding automatic movement and features the Caliber 89361 and an impressive 68-hour power reserve.


Its stainless steel case, with a fixed stainless steel bezel, measures 43 mm in diameter (excluding winding crown, pushers, and lugs), is 12 mm in height, and rests upon a brown cowhide skin leather strap with white stitching and a partially brushed and polished deployant buckle. This handsome timepiece possesses a 50 m / 5 atm water resistance, a screw-down winding crown, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and an engraved case back that depicts Saint Exupéry’s last plane, the Lightning P-38.


The luminous sword-shaped silver-tone hands, Arabic hour markers, and white minute track are made prominent against the handsome brown sunburst-patterned dial. There is a center seconds hand, a small seconds at 6 o’clock, and a dual 60-minute / 12-hour chronograph sub-dial counter at 12 o’clock. A date window can be found at 6 o’clock inside the small seconds counter. This watch comes with complete set of original boxes, manual, warranty card and a tag. Originally, this timepiece was sold in 2014.

Standout feature(s): Clever chronograph function read-out; Impressive 68-hour power reserve; celebration of author and pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry; case back engraved with Saint-Exupéry’s last plane.
