“The watches I’ve been drawn to represent a passion for design and a respect for tradition and craftsmanship. A watch also represents something personal. It reflects your individuality and taste—from its functionality to its aesthetic.”
The Ralph Lauren Stirrup Collection captures the iconic equestrian heritage of Ralph Lauren design with a signature stirrup-shaped silhouette that is a bold expression of the designer’s philosophy. Watches from this collection reflect a spirit of nobility and adventure, evocative of the time-honored bond between horse and rider.
For 2015, Ralph Lauren introduces a new addition to the Stirrup Collection. The Ralph Lauren Stirrup Petite Timepiece brings further versatility to the Stirrup Collection, with a 23.30mm by 25mm stainless steel case in the instantly recognizable stirrup shape. Every element is achieved with the designer’s signature attention to detail, from the immaculately executed dial, with its Roman numerals and minute track, to the convex sapphire crystal and black oxidized sword-shaped hands.
Powered by the RL057 Swiss manufacture quartz caliber that is decorated with vertical Côtes de Genève stripes, the Stirrup Petite timepiece is offered on a luxurious saddle brown calf strap with contrasting beige stitching. A detail that equestrian fans will appreciate is the small leather flap that attaches the top of the watchcase to the strap, emulating the stirrup leather of a rider’s saddle. The unique strap design also recalls the contour of a saddle as it passes beneath the case and through the stirrup to secure it. Enhanced by these subtle yet distinctive equestrian details, the watch’s stirrup-shaped buckle complements its matching case.
The Stirrup Petite watch strap is available in luxurious calf or alligator leather in a variety of vibrant colors.
