A Long History of IWC Aviator Watches

The Pilot’s ‘Le Petit Prince’ 43mm is part of a long and illustrious history. IWC made their first pilots watch in the mid 1930s. Flying a plane was a very different experience back then without the modern heated cockpits of today. The watch had to be highly resistant to extremes of temperature, and it was. It could withstand a range of -40 to +40 celcius, and featured anti-magnetic technology.

IWC has been producing precision pilot’s watches since then, and the Pilot’s ‘Le Petit Prince’ Chronograph 43mm carries on that proud tradition.

You can see the aviation history in the little details. The Le Petit Prince features a triangular index at the twelve o’clock position, flanked by two small dots. After all, a pilot needs to be able to tell the time at a glance, and the classic IWC triangle index makes it easy to do that.

IWC Schaffhausen watches also feature large, conical crowns, designed to be easy to use even by a pilot wearing thick gloves in a cold cockpit. Of course today’s models are self-winding with a power reserve of up to 44 hours, but still retain the historic look of the 1930’s models.
