Not a special edition, but, it is beautiful. I am torn, oddly, between that-I would trade speedmaster towards it, or simply adding black bay 58 blue...yes, a very different watch, but, I prefer vintage style watches or derivatives of them...I was contemplating adding an Omega 300 in blue...but, while I love it on other people, I don’t like it so much on me.
It’s funny because my attention recently has been on the BP…

and of the options present, this blue dial is tops, followed by the Heritage titanium version (if still available). I’ve just been searching the forum wondering why IWC or at least the BP doesn’t get more attention/air time despite being such an important piece in horology, I think. Heck, even John Mayer sweats the BP😳. Perhaps it’s the size, but every post I’ve seen on here makes it more attractive. So maybe 2023 is the year for me too. I just don’t want to add a watch that won’t get enough wrist time, but I feel this one with its rugged cool vibe would suit me casually. I like the small 43mm version because no date, but it doesn’t have subdial and it isn’t classic BP.
It does have a nice vintage look with the gilt colored markers and hands. But the titanium makes it lighter on wrist than I’d prefer. So the Petite Prince is the winner. Thanks so much for all the information.
