Always a fan of good watches for great causes, this is the fourth year running that I’ve featured IWC Schaffhausen’s special watch for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. Since 2006 IWC has launched several limited editions in honour of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. In addition to their blue dial color, these watches are distinguished from regular counterparts by the caseback which features an exclusive engraving on the back based on the winning entry in a drawing competition organized by IWC for children involved in Laureus projects. They are given a specific topic as a guideline and asked to produce a work of art showing how the project has positively affected and inspired them. The caseback of this year’s winner is seen below.
This IWC Portuguese Classic Chrono for Laureus Foundation 2014 is a limited edition of 1,000 pieces and priced $13,200. Comes in a 42mm steel case (14.5mm thick) and automatic mechanical IWC Cal. 89361. More images of this beautiful time piece below or alternatively visit IWC for more details.
