Gianfranco D’Attis, President IWC North America, and Olivier D’Agay, grandnephew of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, then welcomed guests into the pilot’s lounge at the back of the boutique for a special presentation. D’Agay even treated guests to a short reading from the beginning of Le Petit Prince, complete with him showing off the illustrations, before the official unveiling of the two watches, the Mark XVII and the Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar Edition “Le Petit Prince,” both of which feature nods to the novella on front and back. The Mark XVII bears a small shooting star on the seconds hand’s counterweight and has the Little Prince himself engraved on the caseback, while the Perpetual Calendar has a special moonphase indicator with the Little Prince as well as the same motif adorning the movement’s winding rotor.
"I love these watches because they really succeed in capturing the spirt of The Little Prince," says D’Agay. "I don’t know how they did this, but we are happy to share the 70 years of Le Petit Prince with everyone here in New York."
Finally, as the presentation closed, guests were invited to join D’Agay and D’Attis for a dinner at Le Grenouille to finish the celebration of the Little Prince’s birth some 70 years ago.
