This is already the tenth time that IWC Schaffhausen has supported the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation with a special edition
The blue alligator leather strap by Santoni combined with twelve diamonds give this watch its luxurious overall appearance.
The back engraving, based on a drawing by 16-year-old Eleni Partakki from Cyprus, show boys and girls playing with a ball.
The dial and moon phase display in unmistakable Laureus blue give the watch depth and a sense of three-dimensionality.
Sixteen-year-old Eleni Partakki's drawing is a call to young people on the divided island of Cyprus to play basketball together.
The latest IWC “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” special edition is already the tenth in the series. And, once again, the colour of hope for disadvantaged children is blue.
This time it is the turn of the Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37 Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” to feature the unmistakable Laureus blue on its dial. And because the moon phase display is the same shade of blue, the silver moon appears to float in infinite space, while the 12 diamonds for the hour indices give the impression of being a twinkling continuation of the star-studded night sky. The dark blue Santoni alligator leather strap tones perfectly with the colour. With a moderately sized case diameter of 37 millimetres, the Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37, water-resistant to 3 bar, is also ideal for a more slender wrist. The hands and the moon phase display are powered by the mechanical 35800-calibre automatic movement. The phase of the moon in the display is set using the correction button at “2 o’clock”. The central hacking seconds hand is stopped using the crown and the sapphire glass has an antireflective coating on both sides.
In 2015, in keeping with a revered tradition, IWC Schaffhausen organized another children’s drawing competition throughout all the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation projects. The subject of this year’s competition, “Time for Sport”, encouraged many children and adolescents from all over the world to submit entries.
The jury chose the drawing by 16-year-old Eleni Partakki from Cyprus. Her picture shows happy girls and boys playing with a ball. The winning design is engraved on the back of the case. The engraving is a reminder that some of the sales proceeds are destined to help Laureus Sport for Good Foundation projects in some of the world’s crisis regions. Eleni Partakki is a participant of PeacePlayers International Cyprus (PPI), which actively encourages Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot boys and girls to play basketball together. About 1,400 Greek and Turkish Cypriots play basketball at summer camps, street festivals and local competitions.
The latest IWC “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” special edition is already the tenth in the series. And, once again, the colour of hope for disadvantaged children is blue. The watch, with its moon phase display and 12 diamonds has a case diameter of 37 millimetres and is thus particularly suitable for watch lovers with slightly smaller wrists. It is limited worldwide to 1500.
