The IWC Big Pilot Annual Calendar Le Petit Prince reference IW5027-04 is a piece unique created in 2016. It features a red gold case, a blue dial and a blue-coated movement - the latter being making it unique. It is to be auctioned by Sotheby's at their Sale of Important Watches November 15th 2016, with the proceeds from the sale benefitting the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation. The final price was CHF 48.750
Located at “12 o’clock” on the dial, IWC’s annual calendar shows the month, date and day in three separate windows. The mechanism automatically takes into account the differing lengths of individual months. Unlike a perpetual calendar, however, the annual calendar is unable to make allowance for the leap days in February or the leap years. Once a year, then, at the end of February, it requires manual correction. In the case of IWC’s annual calendar, the correction is made simply, via the crown.
