The overall design and shape is inspired by his iconic Caudron Simoun plane and his famous novel Night Flight. Engravings on the barrel and cap show the sky seen by Saint-Exupéry on November 1, 1929 at 23:00. As director of the newly formed company Aeroposta Argentina S.A, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry conducted Aeroposta’s inaugural flight on November 1, 1929, flying from an airfield at Villa Harding Green to Comodoro Rivadavia. The fittings are inspired by the cockpit of his plane. The geographic position of important cities in Saint-Exupéry’s life are engraved on the cone.
