BET NOW - The IWC Portofino Hand-Wound 8 days Moon Unique Piece
Laureus Italy is auctioning a one-off IWC ahead of the F1 Charity Night
About a year ago, at the Vetra Theatre in Milan, Lewis Hamilton and a large group of entrepreneurs, showmen and journalists took part in the Laureus F1 Charity Night - the gala event that precedes the Monza weekend and whose aim is to raise funds for those redevelopment and development projects supervised by the Italian branch of the Laureus association.
The commitment of Lureus Italia is confirmed again this year. In an evening, where collectors' items are auctioned - to which I actively participated in 2017 - a very special watch will be auctioned for the second time - special both from the point of view of the noble goal to be achieved and from the truly unique features of the timepiece itself.
On the charitystars.com/laureus website you can place your bet until 6pm on 29 August 2018 and choose from a lot of different items that include sports memorabilia signed by champions from the present and the past, paddock passes to attend the Monza GP on 2 September or two watches - one offered by the cousin of the IWC brand (Baume et Mercier). The items also include a cooking class with Oldani or the latest Smart Brabus.
The evening's top lot, however, moves from the 2017 IWC Big Pilot Perpetual Calendar to the hero model of the 2018 Jubilee collection; the Portofino Hand-Wound, a one-piece watch that features, for the first time, a case made of platinum that contains the inhouse-built manual winding movement that guarantees up to 8 days of power reserve. It is the only modern manual winding Portofino with a platinum case in the world and this makes it extremely attractive for every collector.
