The dial of the timepiece, created in signature Laureus blue, is harmoniously balanced, striking by its clarity and simplicity.
As already a worthy tradition, IWC Schaffhausen organizes a painting competition among children within the projects supported by the Foundation throughout the world.
The painting of the competition winner is engraved on a medallion featured by the case back of the special edition watch. This year, 12-year-old K.D. Sriyan Chamod Dilshan from Sri Lanka became the winner, having reflected the theme of "Team spirit" in his painting. He depicted four young people who hold hands in a circle. The engraving is a good reminder that part of the proceeds received from the watch sales will support projects developed by Laureus for underprivileged children from socially disadvantaged backgrounds of the world.
All buyers of the IWC Portuguese Automatic Edition Laureus Sport for Good Foundation watch will get a copy of the book devoted to 10 of the over 65 projects of the Foundation for underprivileged children.
The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation has already helped more than 750,000 children and young people throughout the world who suffered from poverty, war, violence, drug addiction, discrimination, racism and HIV/ Aids.
The stainless steel case of the IWC watch, 42.3mm in diameter, incorporates a convex sapphire crystal provided with antireflective coating. It is coupled with a blue alligator leather strap fitted with a stainless steel folding clasp. The timepiece, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is 30-meter water-resistant.
