IWC pays tribute to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, best-selling author, famed pilot & adventurer. His book Le Petite Prince has captured the hearts of young and old since its initial publication in 1936. The book has since sold more than 150 million books & been translated into more than 250 languages & dialects. Engraved on the back of the case is the little prince with his coat and sword, just the way Saint-Exupéry drew him back in the 1940s

IWC Caliber 51111, beats at 21,600 vph, contains 42 Jewels & has an impressive power reserve of 7 days or 168 hours. As matter of fact the movement is capable of maintaining a longer power reserve, however the movement is mechanically stopped before all the tension in the spring is exhausted, eliminating the effect of reduced torque in the mainspring as it winds down which would result in a loss of accuracy.
