One of the industry’s most preeminent designers, Ralph Lauren has held the fashion world in thrall for more than 40 years. This American clothing and accessories designer, best known for his Polo Ralph Lauren range, started in neckties before moving to menswear, fragrances and luxury goods – all carrying the distinctive Polo emblem.
Ralph Lauren always had a passion for watches and all timepieces are crafted in Switzerland by master artisans, with movements created by the Richemont Group, a world-renowned creator of luxury goods.
The result of this partnership is four iconic watch collections, the Ralph Lauren Stirrup, Ralph Lauren Slim Classique, Ralph Lauren Sporting and Ralph Lauren 867. Each watch carries typical Ralph Lauren style and glamour with mechanical movements demonstrating Swiss Made excellence. Stirrup is an expression of the label’s equestrian heritage; Slim Classique features classic style and the engraver’s art of guilloché; Sporting is inspired by the romance of safari with each piece contrasting between the rugged and refined such as the tourbillon juxtaposed against weathered straps and gunmetal; and finally the 867 Collection, featuring glamorous deco design which is named after Ralph Lauren’s flagship store at 867 Madison Avenue and includes the house’s most lavish watch – the 867 Diamond.
