IWC - Da Vinci Chronograph Edition

IWC Da Vinci Chronograph Edition "Laureus Sport for Good Foundation"

Every year since 2006, IWC Schaffhausen has launched an exclusive special edition for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.

Like its predecessors, the 11th in the series of IWC special editions, the Da Vinci Chronograph Edition « Laureus Sport for Good Foundation », is a symbol of hope for children and young people who are socially disadvantaged because they have mental or physical handicaps or live in difficult family cir cumstances. Part of the proceeds from the sale of these Laureus Sport for Good Foundation special edition goes directly to the Laureus Foundation and contributes to the funding of its projects.

The Da Vinci Chronograph Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation” comes in e 42mm stainless-steel case, water resistant to 30m, and has a blue dial. Newly developed moving horns with curved lugs ensure that the black alligator leather strap by Santoni fits wrists perfectly. The chronograph shows elapsed minutes and hours on a subdial, so that the stopped times can be read off as if on an analogue watch. As usual, the timepiece has a central chronograph hand to show seconds.  The watch also has a flyback function: pressing the push-button stops, resets and restarts the chronograph instantaneously.

The in-house 89361 chronograph calibre has a 68-hour power reserve and draws its energy via the automatic IWC double-pawl winding system, which has four pawls to transmit energy to the pawl wheel.

One of the hallmarks of all Laureus special editions is an engraving on the case back. Traditionally, IWC Schaffhausen organizes an annual children’s drawing competition within all the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation projects worldwide. The motto this year was “Time Well Spent”, and the jury singled out a drawing by 12-year-old Hou Ye from Shanghai. Despite a mental handicap and limited motor abilities, Hou Ye is a passionate participant in the Special Olympics East Asia. His winning picture shows himself on skis, laughing happily as he sets his own personal best time.
