The Aquatimer Chronograph Edition “Laureus Sport For Good” Story
Water-resistant to 300 metres, the diver's watch is powered by the IWC-manufactured 89365 calibre, a chronograph movement with a flyback function. It displays stopped minutes in a subdial at "12 o'clock". The external/internal rotating bezel guarantees safe setting of dive times. The watch is housed in a rubber-covered, stainless-steel case. It has a dial in distinctive Laureus blue and features black hands with a luminescent coating. On the back of the case is an engraving of 15-year-old Melan's drawing on the subject of "Time to Learn". It was the young Sri Lankan boy's winning entry to the painting competition which IWC organizes annually within the Laureus projects.
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.
