This imposing chronograph not only allows intermediate times to be measured with down-to-the-second accuracy, but also features a perpetual calendar that independently recognizes the different lengths of the months, as well as the leap day occurring every four years. The complex mechanism can be set easily using the crown and will not require any adjustments until 2100.

The date and month are displayed with large numerals in the style of a digital watch. Oscillating at a frequency of 4 hertz, the IWC-manufactured 89801 calibre guarantees high precision. And thanks to its double-pawl winding mechanism, the watch is driven solely by being worn on the wrist: a rotor in 18-carat red gold converts the wearer’s kinetic energy into tension in the spring and generates a power reserve of 68 hours. The watch is fitted with a black alligator leather strap by Santoni.


10,000 SWISS YOUNGSTERS
PARTICIPATE IN LAUREUS PROJECTS

The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation was founded in South Africa 16 years ago. In 2007, IWC Schaffhausen and Mercedes-Benz Switzerland joined forces to establish the Laureus Foundation Switzerland. Laureus focuses on the power of sport to integrate disadvantaged children and adolescents into society more effectively. 10,000 or so young Swiss girls and boys participate in the sports projects on offer, such as Laureus Girls in Sport and Laureus Street Soccer. The foundation raises most of the funding required for these projects with its annual Laureus Charity Night. Last year, donations amounting to CHF 1.1 million were collected.
