The 46.2mm Big Pilot’s Watch Edition “Le Petit Prince” features the characteristic blue dial which has become the signature trademark of IWC’s special editions in tribute of Antoine de Saint-Exupérys most famous literary work. The watch is powered by the IWC-manufactured 52110-calibre movement. It features an efficient Pellaton automatic winding system with parts made from black or white ceramic. With the help of two barrels, it builds up a reserve of 7 days. The display at “3 o’clock” provides an indication of the remaining power reserve. The Big Pilot’s Watch has a date display at “6 o’clock” and the central seconds essential in any watch used for flying. With its soft-iron inner case, it is optimally shielded against the influence of magnetic fields. This Pilot’s Watch has an engraving on the rear of the little prince with his cape and sword.

Give your watch a quick check on a regular basis, wiping down the face and bracelet with a soft cloth, checking the leather on a strap, and making sure that the strap or bracelet is firmly attached to the watch face. Also, while many watches are water resistant, few are truly waterproof, so if you find that moisture or dust has penetrated the case of your watch, bring it into your local Ben Bridge store where we can have one of our watchmakers clean it out for you.

Our best advice on watch maintenance is to never attempt do-it-yourself repairs, no matter how handy you are or how good the instructions are on Youtube. Watches are super complex little machines and only an expert watchmaker should be trusted to get a watch back into working condition. Attempts by an untrained repair person may seriously damage the watch and can even invalidate factory warranties.

In general, having your watch checked regularly by your Personal Jeweler or watchmaker and serviced according to the manufacturer's guidelines should keep it in excellent shape.
