Time Well Spent

A unique de­sign by a very spe­cial 12 year old

Golf Asia - - LUXE SCENE -

Ade­sign by a 12 year old Chi­nese boy has been cho­sen for this year’s lim­ited edi­tion watch which will raise funds to help Lau­reus Sport for Good im­prove the lives of young peo­ple around the world. Hou Ye, a Spe­cial Olympics ath­lete in Shang­hai, was one of hun­dreds of chil­dren from Lau­reus-sup­ported projects world­wide who en­tered the IWC Schaffhausen draw­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

Hou Ye and the pupils at the Jin­gan Qi­hui Spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion School were thrilled when Olympic gym­nas­tics su­per­star Li Xiaopeng came to con­grat­u­late him on his de­sign, which is en­graved on the case back of the 11th in the se­ries of Lau­reus spe­cial edi­tions, the IWC Da Vinci Chrono­graph Edi­tion “Lau­reus Sport for Good Foun­da­tion” (Ref. IW393402), with a theme of ‘Time Well Spent’. The draw­ing fea­tures a young boy ski­ing and throw­ing his hands up in joy – a ref­er­ence to Hou Ye him­self, who is an ac­com­plished Spe­cial Olympics ath­lete. The Spe­cial Olympics makes it pos­si­ble for chil­dren and adults with in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­i­ties to par­tic­i­pate in sports train­ing and com­pe­ti­tions. It is es­ti­mated that China has over 85 mil­lion peo­ple liv­ing with a dis­abil­ity.
