The Black Stirrup Collection
“The common denominator of all my designs and my passion is the same: timeless elegance, quality and craftsmanship. I aspire to create watches that portray a way of life and authenticity. Like everything else I design, I want them to have character and an enduring sense of style and luxury.” —Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren’s iconic stirrup-shaped timepiece debuts in new black finishes as the latest expression of the designer’s passion for the equestrian lifestyle. Watches from the Stirrup collection celebrate the grace, beauty and tradition of horse riding, all with the unrivaled precision of Swiss horological craftmanship.
The Ralph Lauren Stirrup Large and Medium Timepieces, in 36mm and 32mm respectively, are presented in a matte-black finish with every detail designed to Ralph Lauren’s specifications, from the black lacquered dial, with its Roman numerals and minute track, to the stainless steel case encompassed by a beautifully curved sapphire crystal. The self-winding, Swiss-made movement is hand-finished with vertical Côtes de Genève stripes and circular graining, known as perlage.
Completing the collection are the Ralph Lauren Small and Petite Timepieces designed with a stainless-steel case in a polished black finish. Powered by a Swiss quartz movement, the waterresistant timepieces also boast a 74-month battery life. The two sizes, in 27mm and 23mm, are further complemented by a bracelet strap composed of interlocking chain links that adapt to the shape of the wrist for seamless wear.
A new interchangeable strap option—in black calf leather with tonal black stitching—features a small tab and stud that attach the top of the watchcase to the strap, emulating a rider’s saddle. The unique strap design recalls the contours of the saddle as it passes beneath the case and through the stirrup to secure it.
Available for men and women, the watches are the perfect complement to Ralph Lauren’s fine jewelry and accessory collections.
