the Ralph & Ricky Bear Watch
In celebration of love, unity, and timelessness, Ralph Lauren presents the Ralph & Ricky Bear Watch, inspired by the designer’s longtime relationship with his wife and muse Ricky. The charming new timepiece showcases two bears holding hands in signature looks modeled after a 1996 photograph of the couple walking together at their estate in Bedford, New York.
“I aspire to create watches that portray a way of life and authenticity. Like everything I design, I want them to have a character and an enduring sense of style and luxury.” – Ralph Lauren
The Ralph & Ricky Bear Watch brings together Mr. Lauren’s admiration for the finest watchmaking with a beloved icon from the World of Ralph Lauren. Shown here, Ralph & Ricky Bear wear a double-breasted blazer and flag sweater respectively—styles derived from the designer’s personal way of dressing and his classic designs.
The Polo Bear debuted in 1991 as 200 limited-edition bears produced by Steiff, the famed German toy manufacturer, and dressed in miniaturized Polo Ralph Lauren apparel. In the years since, the world’s best-dressed bear has appeared as embroidery, prints, and patches on a variety of items, from neckties to sweater.
Powering the automatic watch, the Swiss-made caliber RL200 movement runs at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, featuring 26 jewels with an approximate 38-hour power reserve.
The case back is engraved with Ralph & Ricky and the 38mm round case is available in white dial, polished stainless steel, to be worn with interchangeable navy calf strap.
