Ralph Lauren is set to drop a trio of watches that sports its iconic Polo Bear on the dial. Each three styles are illustrated to depict the American designer’s signature styles. Arriving in the form of the Bedford Bear, Denim Flag Bear, and Tuxedo Bear, each watch holds historic significance for the label, paying homage to the Polo Steiff stuffed bear which debuted in 1991.
The Bedford watch carries a look which Ralph Lauren fancied in his early days when deciding on whether or not to live in England; he later changed his mind and moved to a home in Bedford, New York — a home which he turned into his own vision of England but “filled with American energy.” The Denim Flag Bear watch sees a similar outfit as the one Ralph Lauren wore in a 1989 advertisement photographed at his Colorado ranch. Lastly, the Tuxedo Bear shows Ralph Lauren’s love for contradiction as the bear can be seen wearing a tuxedo jacket with boots and a pair of jeans.
Each watch is sized at 42mm and features a Swiss-made RL200 movement with a 38-hour power reserve. Those interested can find the watches dropping at Ralph Lauren on November 15 for a price of $1,950 USD for the Bedford Bear and Denim Flag Bear, and $2,150 USD for the Tuxedo Bear version.
