IWC’s New USD16,600 Limited-Edition Watch Was Made For A Good Cause

IWC continues its support for a good cause by producing a Portugieser with a monopusher chronograph.

Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen (IWC) continued its partnership with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation by presenting its 14th Laureus special edition watch, the Portugieser Hand-Wound Monopusher Edition “Laureus Sport for Good” (Ref. 515301).

Limited to just 500 pieces, the model is the first model in the Portugieser range with a monopusher chronograph. The watch features a stainless steel case and a dial in characteristic Laureus blue. The IWC manufactured hand-wound 59360 calibre has an eight-day power reserve. It is set to retail for USD16,600 (MYR68,881).

The chronograph can be started, stopped and reset with a single push-button integrated in the crown. Engraved on the back of the watch is the winning design from the annual IWC drawing competition for participants of Laureus projects.

This year’s contest, with the theme of “Time to Care”, was won by 15-year old Yi Xin, who is a participant of the “Special Olympics China” programme.

This year’s gala focused on Laureus’s anniversary campaign, “Sport Unites Us”. The award ceremony, recognised as the “Oscars of Sports”, not only honours the world’s best athletes but also shines a spotlight on the work of Laureus Sport for Good.

The proceeds of the sale of these special-edition watches go towards supporting more than 200 programs that aim to use sport to promote social change and put an end to violence, discrimination and disadvantage in 40 countries.
