On the occasion of the 2022 Laureus World Sports Awards in Seville, Spain, IWC Schaffhausen unveils the Portofino Chronograph 39 Edition “Laureus Sport for Good” to highlight its support for the work of the charity organization. Laureus Sport for Good operates in more than 50 countries and supports over 250 programs around the world, which employ sport to transform the lives of children and young people. They aim to promote social change, and put an end to violence and discrimination.
The stainless steel timepiece with a diameter of 39mm and a height of 12.8mm is already the 16th special edition that IWC has launched in collaboration with the foundation. The chronograph sports a dial in signature “Laureus blue” with a two-register layout. Limited to 1,000 pieces, it is driven by the automatic caliber 79350.
The movement ticks behind an engraved case back that displays the winning entry from the drawing competition that IWC organizes every year within all Laureus programs. It depicts hands united together as equals, and was created by 15-year-old Jatin Malhan who is goalkeeper for the Youth Football Club Rurka Kalan in the Jalandhar district of Punjab, India.
Pricing is marked at $6,700.
