IWC celebrates the spirit of sport with its new limited-edition chronograph.
While luxury watches boast elegant designs and complex movement technology, brands like IWC Schaffhausen look to incorporate functional and reliable aspects to withstand the abuse of daily use. With a sport-like look and feel, IWC is proud to partner with the Laureus World Sports Awards on a new limited-edition collaboration timepiece that supports the work that Lauren’s Sport for Good undertakes around the world. IWC Schaffhausen celebrates its involvement with the iconic event by unveiling the all-new Portofino Chronograph 39 Edition ‘Laureus Sport for Good’. The special edition Portofino Chronograph features a 39mm polished stainless-steel case design, blending traditional elegant styling with the sport performance of a chronograph. The dial features a classic blue finish that beautifully contrasts with rhodium-plated hands and indexes.

Delivering power to the Portofino Chronograph 39 Edition ‘Laureus Sport for Good’ is IWC Schaffhausen’s in-house 79350 movement, which highlights a 31-jewel construction that holds an impressive 44-hour power reserve. A commemorative covered backcase includes an engraving of the winning entry from the drawing competition that IWC organizes each year within all Laureus programs that appear on the case back. The drawing depicts hands united together as equals and was created by 15-year-old Jatin Malhan.
