Ralph Lauren is broadening its range of emblematic Stirrup watches with the Baby model that now brings the number of sizes to four different options : large, medium, small and now very small. It perfectly preserves the originality of the collection with its distinctive stirrup-shaped case, a tip of the hat from the designer to his beloved equestrian world that inspired the Polo Ralph Lauren brand. The all-steel new model picks up the classic Roman numerals, minute track and dagger-shaped hands, appearing in black against an off-white background. It comes in a Link version featuring a chain-style bracelet with voluptuously intertwining links creating a remarkably supple feel, complete with a clever adjustment system. The sensual and elegant Stirrup Steel Link Baby is an ideal jewellery watch to which one willingly becomes enchained with unabashed pleasure.
