Introducing the Ralph Lauren Stirrup Miniature Collection
Ralph Lauren introduces a new miniature size of his iconic stirrup-shaped timepiece as part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the Stirrup collection.
Complemented by a colorful array of interchangeable straps, the miniature watches are elegantly presented in 18K rose gold, polished stainless steel, or with a delicate diamond setting, affording equestrian lovers a variety of ways to make a statement of personal style.
Perfectly proportioned for the female wrist, the new size measures 16.8mm by 22.5mm and is powered by a RL1032 Swiss manufacture quartz caliber. The lacquered white dial highlights black Roman numerals and a minute track with black oxidized sword-shaped hands. Distinctive details express the designer’s signature vision of equestrian style, including interchangeable straps—in alligator, calfskin, or bridle leather with contrast stitching—featuring 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 contour of a saddle as it passes beneath the case and through the stirrup to secure it.
The Stirrup collection is completed this season by new jewelry-inspired petite 23mm steel bracelet timepieces with lacquered black or blue dials for a striking, chic contrast. Two sizes of the traditional off-white dial steel case, in 27mm or 32mm, are additionally adorned with an intricate pattern of diamonds encircling the bezel—inspired by the natural beauty of a snowfall—for a glamorous and feminine finish. “A watch for a woman is a piece of jewelry; it’s an heirloom,” says Mr. Lauren.
