A friend of mine had come in to Singapore for a short visit and had wanted to visit some watch boutiques. Ion was the place and the first boutique we went to was IWC. And what we found there we a couple of surprises including the IWC Pilot Chronograph Little Prince Edition reference 3777.
What's so special about this piece? Well one year ago, IWC launched the Pilot Le Petit Prince and the Big Pilot to commemorate the book's 70th anniversary. This year, they unveiled the unlimited edition of the chronograph. As with the earlier LPP editions, the dial is blue in colour.
Priced just slightly higher than the regular edition, I think the Pilot Chrono LPP edition is a winner. However, it would have been nicer if they had used the seconds hand with the star at the tip. But then they would probably make that a limited edition and end up charging more too.
