Ralph Lauren For The Rake Bearfoot Negroni Bear watch$ 1,950
- Product Notes
The Negroni Bear goes barefoot to the Maldives dressed in the height of tropical black tie chic. Our Rakish Bear is back and this time he's without shoes for this special edition to celebrate the opening of our physical stores in the Maldives.
When it came to selecting a design for our travelling Negroni Bear, we imagined him in the Maldives. We asked, ‘What stylistic sartorial master stroke of bella figura would the Polo Bear accomplish?’ Going through the incredible coffee table book created for Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary we found our answer. Captured in black and white, I like to think of it as the ultimate expression of Ralph Lauren’s effortless, nonchalant cool. Photographed from high above, Lauren is seen at his home in Double Tree Jamaica with his hands in his pockets, a laid back poise in his contrapposto, dressed in a double-breasted white tuxedo jacket, evening trousers and with his feet bare.
The Bearfoot Negroni Bear, like his forbearer, is holding our signature libation, the Negroni, a symbol of resistance against despair, its distinct orange hue burning bright against the darkness. The watch features a seconds hand as well as the 5 index in distinct Negroni orange. Why the number “5”? Well, because it is always 5 o'clock somewhere! Like his brother that came before him last year, we hope The Rake’s “Bearfoot Negroni Bear” achieves his one defining mission in life. Which is to put a huge smile on the face of each and every one of his owners this year as we celebrate all the promise 2021 has to offer.
The watch is a 42mm edition, made in Switzerland. It is limited to 200 pieces.

If it were possible to give a visual definition of the modern American man, then he would undoubtedly be wearing clothes by Ralph Lauren. The world-famous polo player logo first adorned shirts in the 1960s, and is now a ubiquitous site in stylish milieus across the globe. It was Lauren’s introduction of softer, more comfortable fabrics at a time when Americans had the money and the time to enjoy out-of-work activities that made his name synonymous with American leisure. A champion of smart-casual, every rake who both appreciates his history and knows how to enjoy the present should have some Ralph Lauren staples in his wardrobe.
