The dial and the moon phase display feature the unmistakable Laureus blue, lending the timepiece an extraordinary plasticity and depth. The hour indices are complemented by 12 diamonds, which combine with the blue alligator leather strap from Santoni to give the timepiece a very elegant overall look. With a case measuring 37 millimetres in diameter, this 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 and limited to only 1500 pieces.

In addition to their distinctive blue colour, another characteristic feature of the Laureus special editions is the engraving on the case back. Each year, IWC organizes a drawing competition for children and adolescents in the context of the foundation’s projects. An expert jury then reviews all the entries to select the winning design to be engraved on the back of the watch. For the tenth special edition in this series, the jury chose the drawing by 16-year-old Eleni Partakki from Cyprus. Her drawing on the competition theme “Time for Sport” shows girls and boys playing with a ball.
