IWC Schaffhausen has introduced the Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37 Edition ‘Laureus Sport for Good Foundation’ to celebrate the Laureus World Sports Awards Ceremony in Berlin.
The timepiece, priced at £6,750 and limited to 1,500 watches, marks the tenth special edition to be launched by the Schaffhausen-based luxury watchmaker as part of its commitment to Laureus Sport for Good.
The winning design from last year’s IWC children’s drawing competition is engraved on the case back.
The company claims that the special engraving is a reminder that a portion of the proceeds from sales goes to Laureus to help support its social projects.
The dial and the moon phase display feature the unmistakable Laureusblue, lending the timepiece an “extraordinary plasticity and depth”, according to the brand.
The hour indices are complemented by 12 diamonds, which combine with the blue alligator leatherstrap from Santoni to give the timepiece an elegant overall look.
With a case measuring 37 millimetres in diameter, the watch is also suitable for watch lovers with slender wrists. It is driven by the automatic 35800-calibre movement with a power reserve of 42 hours.
