As you might have already seen throughout the year, 2021 is the year of the pilots watches for IWC and their latest release is no exception.

The cooperation between IWC and the Laureus Sport For Good foundation started way back in 2006. Subsequently, IWC created a yearly special limited edition piece to support the foundation. Obviously, a percentage of the proceeds from every IWC Pilot’s Watch Automatic Edition “Laureus Sport for Good” Edition will be donated to the foundation.
