IWC has dropped its 15th Laureus Sport for Good Edition watch, this time bringing the charity’s signature shade of blue to the entire case rather than the dial.

Each year the Swiss brand from Schaffhausen crafts a limited edition watch with proceeds going to the charity, usually with the charity’s blue featured on its dial or strap but this time IWC has also formed the case for this Pilot’s Watch Automatic Edition “Laureus Sport for Good” from scratchproof matte-finish blue ceramic and paired it with a high contrast blue dial with white Arabic numerals and hands coated in Super-LumiNova. To complete the look the watch is supplied on a matching blue rubber and fabric strap.

Inside is an IWC 32111 movement made by parent company Richemont’s ValFleurier movement producer, that offers five days of power reserve, with a soft iron inner cage protecting the movement from magnetism.

Laureus Sport For Good was launched by Richemont, and Daimler in 2000 with the aim of “using sport to transform the lives of children and young people and end violence, discrimination, and disadvantage”. The foundation currently supports over 250 programmes in more than 50 countries worldwide.

The caseback of each edition watch features a stamped relief of a child’s illustration, the winning entry to a competition held each year by IWC and open to all of the children taking part in Laureus programmes around the globe. This year’s winning entry ‘Vivir en Armonía’ was drawn by 12-year-old Melissa Mejía Castilla from Colombia.

IWC is making 750 pieces which are available now via IWC, priced $6,250 USD.
