For 2015, Ralph Lauren presents the elegant Stirrup Petite-Link timepiece with mother-of-pearl dial as a timeless, memorable gift to honor Mother’s Day.
Launched in 2009, the Stirrup collection is at the heart of the Ralph Lauren brand. The collection has become a contemporary icon in the watchmaking world, reflecting Ralph Lauren’s passion for equestrian style. “I wanted to celebrate the grace and beauty of horse riding, an elegant equestrian heritage—but at the same time create something that would be iconic and timeless,” says Ralph Lauren.
In 2014, the Ralph Lauren Stirrup Petite-Link timepieces were introduced with cases measuring a mere 23.30mm by 27mm. Perfectly sized for the delicate female wrist, this modern interpretation of Ralph Lauren’s equestrian heritage contrasts the brand’s iconic stirrup-shaped case with a jewelry-inspired bracelet. Composed of intertwining links flowing into one another, the bracelet adapts seamlessly to the wrist’s contour for an optimal level of comfort.
Among these recent models is the Stirrup Petite-Link with a mother-of-pearl dial. With its unique stirrup silhouette, supple chain-link bracelet and refined dial, this timepiece captures the essence of Ralph Lauren’s approach to designing women’s watches: “A watch for a woman is a piece of jewelry; it’s an heirloom,” says Mr. Lauren.
The mother-of-pearl dial is complemented by classic black Roman numerals, minute markers and sword-shaped hands—all encompassed by a beautifully curved sapphire crystal. The watch is powered by the Swiss manufacture caliber RL057 quartz movement, which is decorated with traditional Côtes de Genève stripes. With a battery life of approximately 60 months, it offers precision and carefree maintenance.
