Flight has always been one of the main arteries into the watch hobby.We fantasize about strapping a reliable timepiece to our wrist and taking to the sky on a grand adventure – the iwc replica watch, our noble companion keeping us on track. One way that IWC recognizes this and honors that tradition is with with their Le Petit Prince collection.
This watch will feature a constant force tourbillon in the Cheap IWC Replica Manufacture Calibre 94805, which we saw used in a Portugieser here.This patented constant-force tourbillon solves that problem by separating the escapement from the dial train and meters the tension applied to the balance spring.
The result is an even dispersion of force to the escape wheel canceling out the effect of gravity and providing remarkable precision, the brand claims. The tourbillon itself is visible at 9 o’clock on the dial ticking away at 2.5Hz. The hand-wound movement boasts a 96hr power reserve indicated on the IWC Replica Watches dial between 4 and 5 o’clock, and a perpetual moon phase display at 1 o’clock with the Petite Prince character perched on his planet instead of a moon.
As with other Big Pilots, this version is 46.2mm wide and 13.5mm thick, and the case back features a sapphire display to view the decorated bridges and get some glimpses of the gear train.
