This unique IWC is powered by a blue movement, a feature produced for the very first time by IWC for this watch and indeed one that adorns this watch only. Due to the highly complex techniques required to ensure the Chemical Vapor Deposition creates an even finish combined with the delicacy and skill required to handle such pieces after this process is complete, the movement took IWC nearly 2 years to develop.

Was auctioned by Sothebys on 15 Nov 2016 for CHF 48,750, the funds raised will be used to launch the Fondation St. Exupéry in the US to partner with local NGO or Associations. The aim is to produce the book “Le Petit Prince” in Braille (text and drawings) and not only teach visually impaired children to read the text but also to read drawings.
