IWC Honors A Legendary Flight With This Handsome Chronograph Watch

A whopping 80 years have passed since Antoine de Saint-Exupéry flew from Biscarrosse to New York in the Latécoère 521 “Lieutenant de Vaisseau Paris” flying boat. To honor that legendary transatlantic flight, the folks at IWC have crafted this absolutely stunning Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph.

Called the “80 Years Flight To New York” Edition, this breathtakingly gorgeous pilot’s chronograph is done up in a tobacco brown colorway — harkening back to the flight suits of Saint-Exupéry’s time. The watch is also done up in stainless steel for some handsome durability, boasts an automatic movement with a 68-hour power reserve, and it’s water-resistant to 6ATM. However, perhaps the handiest feature, from a traveler’s perspective, is the world timer bezel, which allows the user to set another timezone with a simple twist of the bezel. Only 80 of these watches are ever to be made, and they’re available now for $13,100 each.

Purchase: $13,100
