Title: It can be said that in the just-concluded Hong Kong International Watch & Clock Fair, there has never been a single piece of outstanding work. All exhibitors took out their most proud works and unveiled the veil of those fine watches from the most gorgeous perspective. Maybe I should use words like stunning, incredible or surging to describe the feelings of those works, but at the starry show, or you can find a touch of childlike tenderness in the blank.
—– To IWC Mark XVII Pilot’s Watch ‘Little Prince’ Special Edition
A plane crash or more could be a painful accident, but it might be an opportunity to meet the little prince. Today, let the nations give the little prince a new understanding. From a watch perspective, this watch is no longer on the new counter. But when we flipped over the dial, it suddenly made people’s eyes bright. Yes, the ‘kids’ on the bottom of the watch made it once the ‘big hit’ of the entire watch exhibition. Just a glimpse of pearly jealousy, what impressed me most was this limited edition IWC ‘Little Prince’ watch.
At the time of the 70th anniversary of the birth of ‘Little Prince’, IWC has withdrawn from two limited edition watches: the ‘Little Prince’ special edition of the large pilot perpetual calendar watch and the ‘Little Prince’ special edition of the Mark 17 pilot watch. The birth of these two special edition watches is Schaffhausen’s greetings to Saint Exupery and The Little Prince. The Little Prince, which has been translated into more than 270 languages, and the IWC 17 pilots have become classics in their respective fields. The combination of classics, I think, will become eternal in the world.
To fully appreciate the secrets of the IWC Pilot’s Watch, start by learning about the Mark XVII Flight Watch. This watch fully embodies the spirit of the pilot’s watch. The essence of this watch is reflected in its pure flying cockpit style. In the field of watches, when we talk about flying watches, we almost always think of IWC. This style of deep impression has become a brand in the hearts of watch fans. The hard-bodied flight watch can be found in the roar of the aircraft, but can it be warm and pleasant in the steel-framed machinery? Keep the little prince close to your wrist. The warm current you feel may come from the innocent temperature.
The blue dial is like the instrument panel in the cockpit, and it is the primary standard when reading quickly during flight. Compared with the refined Mark XVII, the watchmakers have made some adjustments on the date display window, so that the current dial of the Mark XVII flight watch looks more like the instrument shape of the cockpit, even on land, it seems to have Soaring in the sky. The vertical arrangement of the digital windows is reminiscent of the instrument design for measuring heights, and the date can be quickly identified by the triangular mark, which is simple and easy. Or the most eye-catching design in the dial is the small star-shaped balancer at the tail of the second hand. This design is to express the innocence of ‘Little Prince’. Perhaps for those who know ‘Little Prince’, this design makes You will think of the little prince coming from another planet.
This watch is water-resistant to 60 meters, which is enough for daily waterproofing. The movement uses a 30110 automatic mechanical movement, which has a full power reserve of 42 hours. Whether it is flying or thinking has traveled to the planet of the little prince, I think it will be too late. Adhering to the tradition of high quality as before, like the Mark XVII of the 1940s, this watch is equipped with an antimagnetic soft iron inner case, and it is firmly equipped with a glass mirror that can withstand sudden pressure drops. No matter from the accuracy or sturdiness of the watch, this special edition of the Mark XVII ‘Little Prince’ is enough to meet all the indicators of the pilot’s watch.
The most noteworthy of course is the shape of the little prince engraved on the bottom of the watch. He is standing on the little planet that belongs to him only. The picture of the scarf flying with the wind is the cover of the book The Little Prince. Every corner of the world, of course, this includes the factories of IWC. Master watchmakers have a passion for the little prince and restore every detail to the bottom of the watch in order to allow customers to fly in the vast sky with the little prince. This stainless steel Mark XVII pilot’s watch ‘Little Prince’ Special Edition is limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide. Whether it will pass the ‘Little Prince’ may depend on whether your eyes are fast.

We are proud of our partners who are committed to spreading the humanitarian ideas of this great man. Saint Exupery is still a model of bravery, pioneering, perseverance and passion. ‘
In a watch, those delicate and cold machinery can only lie quietly and regularly in the case, but when the little prince is carried on the bottom of the watch, the emotional pursuit will be changed from The wrist extends to my heart. Suddenly, the original things suddenly have a little vitality, so we are no longer afraid of loneliness in the dark, and we have the courage to correct in the face of hypocrisy. The revelation of the little prince to humanity is still extending, but for the limited edition IWC, it is an instant and eternal gesture.

Love Lights Up Dreams Casio Volunteers In Action-casio’s ‘my Dream Backpack’ Charity Event Walks Into Hunan
In the winter, the cold wind in Hanshou County, Hunan Province is lingering, but this has not stopped the Casio volunteers from giving their children thousands of miles with warm footsteps. On December 8, the fifth stop of CASIO’s ‘My Dream Backpack’ charity event went to Pioneer Primary School, Zhouwenmiao Township, Hanshou County, Changde City, Hunan Province. Caring donations and volunteer activities were carried out to make teachers and students of the school feel cold. The wind felt the warmth from Shanghai.
The school building of Pioneer Primary School in Zhouwenmiao Township has been in disrepair for many years. There are many cracks on the walls of the classrooms, and the roof often leaks. The cafeteria and toilets have become dilapidated rooms and need urgent renovation. Forty-eight students in the school had to squeeze into three dimly lit classrooms. At the same time, there was almost no complete glass window in the classroom, and the bitter cold winter wind through the broken window blew the little children’s faces flushed, and the little hand holding the pen shivered. In such a difficult teaching environment, schools can barely maintain basic teaching for children, unable to purchase teaching equipment and organize after-school activities.
In order to help children improve the teaching environment and improve the quality of teaching, Casio volunteers brought Casio’s electric pianos, projectors, learning machines and cameras to children, as well as advanced teaching equipment such as laptops, printers, etc. And donated cash for repairs to school buildings.
Mr. Lin Chengbin, the general manager of Casio (China) Trading Co., Ltd. told the children passionately, ‘The world’s difficult things must be done easily, and the world’s big things must be done carefully. I hope you can overcome the difficulties in the pursuit of your dreams and learn cultural knowledge. Master practical skills and move towards your dreams. Casio is willing to help you improve your learning environment, enrich your extracurricular life, and accompany you along your path to pursue your dreams, because your dreams are Casio’s dreams! ‘
