Tamika Catchings Visits IWC Schaffhausen - Laureus Sport for Good Foundation Event in Cyprus

IWC Schaffhausen and the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation visited Cyprus to celebrate with Cypriot student Eleni Partakki, the winner of last year’s IWC children’s drawing competition. Her drawing showing girls and boys playing ball together is engraved on the case back of the Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37 Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation”.

Tamika Catchings, US sports legend and one of the greatest players in WNBA history, and Eleni Partakki joined forces on the basketball court in order to celebrate Eleni’s win in last year’s IWC drawing contest, themed “Time for Sport”.
Eleni is a participant in Peace Players International, a Laureus-supported project which encourages Greek Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot boys and girls to play basketball together. She won the drawing competition IWC organizes each year for children and adolescents in the context of the foundation’s projects. An expert jury reviews all entries and selects the winner.

Eleni’s drawing shows girls and boys playing with a ball and is engraved on the case back of the Portofino Automatic Moon Phase 37 Edition “Laureus Sport for Good Foundation”, which is limited to 1500 pieces worldwide.

The timepiece marks the tenth special edition IWC has launched as part of its commitment for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. The engraving on the case back is a reminder that a portion of the proceeds from sales helps to support the foundation’s various social projects. IWC has been a Global Partner of Laureus Sport for Good since 2005.
