IWC has just launched the Portugieser Monopusher Manual Winding Edition “Laureus Sport for Good”. With this special edition, the Swiss brand continues to support social sports projects, led by its partner, Laureus Sport for Good.
Limited to just 500 pieces, the Portugieser Manual Winding Monopusher Edition “Laureus Sport for Good” is the 14th Laureus special edition from IWC and the first Portugieser with a single-button chronograph, which can be started, stopped and restarted by simply pressing a button integrated in the crown . The recorded time is shown on a sub-display located at 12 o’clock.
This watch features a 46 mm steel case, with the characteristic blue Laureus dial and a black leather strap by Santoni. The small seconds hand is at 6 o’clock and the power reserve indication is at 9 o’clock. Powered by the IWC 59360 manual caliber, this model has an eight-day power reserve.
On the caseback of the Portugieser Monopusher Manual Winding Edition “Laureus Sport for Good” is an engraving of the winning design of the IWC annual design competition, for the participants of Laureus projects. This year the jury selected a 15-year-old Yi Xin drawing from China, with an emotional portrait of friendship. Yi participates in the “Special Olympics in China” program. This project, supported by Laureus, offers training in Olympic sports disciplines for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
