Lighting has always been one of the main arteries of watch lovers. One way IWC recognizes this and respects this tradition is the Le Petit Prince series. This series of watches is named after the famous novel of writer and aviation pioneer Antoine deSaint-Exupéry, and is equipped with the iconic midnight blue dial. In 2019, the new IWC replica watches Swiss made announced the next chapter in the I Petit Prince series, including the IWC Big Pilot replica’s constant force tourbillon watch “Le Petit Prince”.
Force Tourbillon Edition ‘Le Petit Prince’ IW590303 Replica
This high quatily replica watch will be equipped with a constant force tourbillon in the IWC 94805 movement, which we will use for the Portuguese here. The tourbillon itself is visible at 9 o’clock on the dial, ticking at a frequency of 2.5 Hz. The hand-wound movement displays a 96-hour (or 4 days) power reserve on the dial between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock, and a permanent moon phase at 1 o’clock, with the Petite Prince character placed on its planet. Not the little prince on the dial. moon.
In addition to remarkable movement functions, this new Le Petit Prince is also an IWC replica watch with a “hard gold” case. Hard gold is a new 18kt red gold alloy that has been formulated to have a wear resistance that is 5 to 10 times higher than wear resistance. This is a bit reminiscent of Hublot’s “Magic Gold” that we tested and tested here. “Like other Big Pilots, this version has a width of 46.2mm and a thickness of 13.5mm. A sapphire display is installed on the case back, allowing you to AAA replica watch the decorated bridge and learn about the gear train.
Therefore, under any circumstances, I will never see one of them in metal. This does not prevent me from appreciating IWC replica’s technical achievements. The tourbillon has existed at this point for more than two centuries, but the partnership between the constant force mechanism and the 96-hour power reserve is inherently extraordinary. As for the “hard gold” case, we will have to see how it performs, but if it works as expected, it will be a worthy addition in terms of wear resistance.
