The Da Vinci Chronograph Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” Story
The elegant Da Vinci Chronograph Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” has a diameter of 42 millimetres. Newly designed articulated strap horns and curved lugs ensure that the black alligator leather strap from Santoni fits comfortably on the wrist. The in-house 89361-calibre chronograph movement with a 68-hour power reserve draws its power via a double-pawl automatic winding system. Thanks to the flyback function, this stainless-steel watch allows ongoing chronograph time measurements to be instantly “deleted” and a new measurement started without an intermediate stop. This year, IWC Schaffhausen organized another children’s drawing competition throughout all the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation projects. The jury chose the drawing by 12-year-old Hou Ye from Shanghai.
Laureus Sport for Good is a charitable organization founded by Daimler and Richemont in 2000 with the aim of using the power of sport to end violence, discrimination and disadvantage, proving that sport can change the world. Laureus supports more than 100 programmes that use sport to drive social change in around 40 countries. IWC Schaffhausen has been a Global Partner of Laureus since 2005. As part of this cooperation, the Schaffhausen watchmakers launch a limited special edition watch each year. The watches feature a characteristic blue dial and an engraving on the case back. This engraving depicts the winning picture from a drawing competition for children and young people, which is organized by IWC each year throughout all the Laureus Sport for Good projects.
