Description: 42.3mm, stainless steel case. This is now the fourth time that a “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” special edition watch from IWC Schaffhausen has set off in aid of a good cause. Thanks to the support of IWC and the commitment of the Foundation, the Laureus blue on the dial of the Portuguese Automatic is now the color of hope for underprivileged children throughout the world. In keeping with a worthy tradition, IWC Schaffhausen holds a children’s painting competition within the projects supported by Laureus throughout the world. The winning design is engraved on a medallion and inset into the back of the case of the special edition model. This year, the jury’s choice was a drawing by 12-year-old K.D. Sriyan Chamod Dilshan from Sri Lanka, who is involved in the Laureus project Seenigama Sports. He illustrated the theme of “Team spirit” with a picture of four young people holding hands in a circle. The engraving is a reminder that part of the proceeds from sales of the watch will go towards projects for underprivileged children in troubled areas of the world.
Large-format wristwatch with automatic movement, Pellaton winding mechanism, small seconds hand and seven-day power reserve display, as well as a medallion on the back of the case showing the winning drawing from the “Team spirit” painting competition; limited to 1,000 watches this is number 536. This watch comes on a blue alligator leather strap with stainless steel deployant clasp.
