The cooperation between the watch brand and the foundation began with the Portuguese Chronograph Automatic model in 2006. This year, IWC delivers its new Ingenieur Automatic Edition Laureus Sport for Good Foundation watch.
Inspired by the Ingenieur Automatic of 1955, the novelty is set in a 42.5mm case. It is rendered in stainless steel with a nicely polished surface. Equipped with a screw-in crown, the new IWC watch is 120-meter water-resistant.
An attention-getter of a special kind is surely the case-back. The company arranged a drawing competition for children and opted for an illustration by the eight year-old Sohel Abrar Khan from Mumbai. The competition was devoted to the idea “Time for Unity” and the winner’s drawing revealed seven youngsters who gathered for a game of football.
The new IWC Ingenieur Automatic Edition Laureus Sport for Good Foundation watch comes equipped with an imperial blue sunburst dial. Completed with pointed indices and sword-shaped hands, it indicates central hours, minutes and hacking seconds. The date indication is offered in the aperture at 3 o’clock.
All the functions are driven by an innovative in-house 80111 calibre movement. It is endowed with the Pellaton winding system and an integrated shock absorber. Set with 28 jewels, the mechanism supplies a 44-hour power reserve.
Offered in a limited series of 1000 pieces, the new IWC watch is coupled with a leather strap, which makes a fine match with its dial.
