Three new pilot watches pay tribute to legendary aircraft and airmen from decades past.

IWC’s new Timezoner Chronograph Edition 80 Years Flight to New York watch – with its beautiful sepia dial – celebrates the 80th anniversary of Antoine de Saint Exupéry’s historic flight across the Atlantic.

The French writer and pilot was on board the flying boat Latécoère 521 during its first non-stop crossing of the North Atlantic in 1939 that took 28 hours and 27 minutes.
