THE NY YANKEES POLO BEAR WATCH
Ralph Lauren’s signature Polo Bear Watch collection continues to expand with the introduction of a new NY Yankees Polo Bear style. A beloved icon from the World of Ralph Lauren, each Polo Bear is inspired by Ralph Lauren, his signature style of dressing, memorable moments from his life and the constant themes of his timeless designs that draw on Americana and sports.
A life-long New Yorker and New York Yankees fan, Ralph Lauren threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Yankee Stadium in 2018, the year of the company’s 50th anniversary. The NY Yankees Polo Bear is depicted throwing the pitch — its left-handed stance, a direct reference to Ralph Lauren —wearing the classic Yankee pinstripe uniform. Rendered in a vibrant 3-D print, the dial is available in lacquered off-white or blue with contrast Arabic numbers. Black lacquered hands track the hours and minutes, while a needle-like, red lacquered hand tracks seconds. Crafted in the elite tradition of Swiss horology, the 42 mm timepiece is powered by an RL200 caliber automatic Swiss movement that is hand-finished with vertical Côtes de Genève stripes and circular graining, known as perlage.
Water-resistant with a 38-hour power reserve, the polished stainless-steel case features a matching crown embellished with the Pony logo. Encased by beautiful, curved sapphire crystal finished with an anti-reflective treatment, the watch has an open caseback.
The off-white dial NY Yankees Polo Bear Watch ships with a tan calf leather strap, while the blue dial ships with a navy calf leather strap. Interchangeable bracelet options include a sporty navy rubber strap and a navy and white pinstripe strap, both printed with the New York Yankees logo. Additional straps are sold separately.
A playful and collectable piece of Ralph Lauren heritage, the NY Yankees Polo Bear Watch transcends traditional gender categorizations. It is the perfect complement to Ralph Lauren’s fine jewelry and accessories collections.
