IWC issued the 50th edition of the Laureus Sport for Good limited edition watch, demonstrating IWC Schaffhausen’s commitment to help the disadvantaged children worldwide. The engineer’s automatic watch from the IWC replica series follows the iconic blue tone, like a beacon of hope, guiding the bright future.
The engineer’s ‘Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation Edition’ automatic watch is not only limited to displaying the correct time, but also dedicated to helping young people to help themselves and bring opportunities for the better lives of disadvantaged children. IWC Schaffhausen has once again taken inspiration from the outstanding work of the Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation, and selected a watch from its own watch series as the spokesman for this beautiful cause. This is the 50th time that the Schaffhausen Watch Factory has launched a special edition of the Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation. In 2006 and 2007, special editions of the Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation were Portuguese automatic chronograph watches and pilot chronograph watches. Da Vinci Chronograph in 2008 and Portuguese Automatic in 2009/10. In 2011, it was an engineer’s automatic watch of the IWC replica series, which continues to show the spirit of movement. The engineer’s ‘Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation Edition’ automatic watch uses a stainless steel case and a striking blue dial.
Continuing its distinguished tradition, Schaffhausen IWC has once again organized a global children’s drawing competition with the support of the Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation, and engraved the winning work on the bottom of this watch. This year, the jury’s illustrations were chosen by Mumbai’s 8-year-old child Sohel Abrar Khan, who is also a member of the Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation’s ‘Magic Bus’ event. The little boy explained the theme of the competition ‘Time for Unity’ with a painting of 7 young people playing football together. The painting is engraved on the bottom of the watch to remind people that part of the sales of this watch will be used to help vulnerable children in some of the poorest parts of the world.
IWC’s self-renewal series has selected a watch as the 50th public welfare watch. This timepiece has a classic appearance, inspired by the engineer’s automatic watch from 1955, equipped with a revolutionary automatic movement, exuding a strong nostalgia. To this day, Albert & Pellaton’s detent-winding system and spring-loaded rotor are still examples of top rugged watch technology. Half a century after its first appearance, IWC’s iconic work has once again made a stunning appearance. This work is not a complete imitation, but a modern gift to this classic watch. This Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation Edition watch is equipped with IWC-manufactured 80111 movement, with a Pellaton winding system and integrated shock absorption.
