The engraved image on the caseback, as on previous IWC Laureus editions, reproduces the winning entry of a children’s drawing competition that IWC organizes in cooperation with the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, a charity that supports more than 100 programs worldwide to use “the power of sport” to affect positive social change. This year’s winning drawing, chosen from more than 1,000 submissions, is by 11-year-old Ana Claudia from Brazil.

I usually love the Laureus releases, but I don't know how I feel about the black case here... I'm not too enthusiastic right now.

I was able to try this watch on at an IWC Boutique, and let me tell you... in person it is absolutely stunning. The sunburst blue with the polished charcoal black ceramic look incredible together. The pics don’t do it justice. It is very light and comfortable on the wrist and is just the right size (41mm) to be worn casual or dress IMO. The crown and buckle are both titanium which also lends to the lightness of the watch.
The watch is gorgeous, and well worth the $5600 price tag they are asking especially given it’s a limited release of 1500.

The only downside is the patterned leather strap. It’s an embossed leather that doesn’t really look expensive enough next to the beautiful case and dial.
