This week an auction was launched by Sotheby’ and finally it was sold by 60,000 dollars. It was the IWC Big Pilot’s fake watch with blue dial which has been engraved with special pattern on the caseback and it is the one and only in the world. The proceeds from the auction was all donated to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation to assist the charity programs.
In fact, the wristwatch Bradley Cooper wore to attend the Academy Awards was exactly the IWC copy with rose gold case. The pattern of “The Little Prince” has been engraved on the back. Meanwhile, “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly” has been engraved on the case too, which is in line with the original aspiration of this auction.
The proceeds of the timepiece has been donated to the Foundation to support the Arrimage located in France. One important program of the Arrimage is to teach the children who are visually impaired to read two dimensional drawings through touching, which is really meaningful.
