The latest IWC “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” special edition is already the eleventh in the series. And, once again, the colour of hope for disadvantaged children is blue. The elegant Da Vinci Chronograph Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” with the Reference IW393402 has a diameter of 42 millimetres and is limited to 1,500 watches. Newly designed moving lugs with curved horns ensure that the black alligator leather strap by Santoni fits perfectly, even on slimmer wrists. The in-house 89361 chronograph calibre with a 68-hour power reserve draws its energy via the automatic IWC’s double-pawl winding, which has four pawls to transfer energy to the pawl wheel. The stainless-steel timepiece, which is water-resistant to 3 bar, is equipped with a flyback function. This allows a time being recorded by the chronograph to be erased instantaneously without an intermediate stop and a new measurement to start immediately. IWC has supported the invaluable work of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation since 2006. Through more than 150 projects worldwide, the Foundation has to this day helped to make better lives possible for around 1.5 million children and young people. This year, once again, IWC Schaffhausen organized a children’s drawing competition within all the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation projects worldwide. The subject, “Time Well Spent”, inspired many children and adolescents from all over the world to take part. The jury chose the drawing by 12-year-old Hou Ye from Shanghai. His winning picture shows himself on skis setting his personal best time. The arrows surrounding him symbolize his lack of fear as he shoots forward. Despite his mental handicap and limited motor abilities, Hou Ye dreams of skiing and is participating in one of six Special Olympics East Asia programmes. Their aim is to make it possible for young, mentally handicapped people to participate in sport and sporting competitions.
