    The Timezoner mechanic is IWC’s ingenious solution to the hassle of changing time zones in a dual-time watch. Rather than mess with the crown or fiddle with pushers, you only need to depress the bezel and move the desired time zone to 12 o’clock, and the hands and date automatically correct themselves without interfering with the movement’s timekeeping. This first appeared in 2016’s Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Chronograph and 2019’s Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Spitfire Edition “The Longest Flight”. It now makes another appearance with the Pilot’s Watch Timezoner Edition Le Petit Prince. Those familiar with The Little Prince versions will know to expect a blue dial and a rendering of 03 01 02 the prince that can be found on the winding rotor. Modelled after “The Longest Flight”, this reference also has a blue ceramic city ring. Limited to 1,500 pieces.
