One of the special features of the Portuguese Marine Elite Chronograph “Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation” is the engraving on the bottom of the watch, which reminds people that some of the proceeds from watch sales will be used to help vulnerable children worldwide. The engraved pattern is based on a painting by a Sri Lankan boy. IWC hosts the International Children’s Drawing Competition each year in the Lawrence Sports Foundation project.

Summary: In fact, the watch itself already has enough strong appeal, but what I want to say is the brand’s feedback to the society. Qiao Qisi commented on the successful concept of the Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation: ‘The power of sports to change the world It is the concept of genius, because sports is a universal language, regardless of their origin and education, everyone understands this language. ‘With this conviction, in 2007, IWC advocated the establishment of the Lawrence Sports Charity Foundation in Switzerland, and Actively promote various activities.

The work of the Lawrence Sports Public Welfare Foundation has helped children and young people around the world who are suffering from poverty, homelessness, war, violence, discrimination, drugs, racism and AIDS. In fact, I think charity is a fashion shining with brilliance.

It is limited to 1,000 pieces. Part of the proceeds will be donated to different sports to help teenagers regain confidence and self-affirmation.
