THE RALPH LAUREN POLO WATCH COLLECTION

In the midst of The Rake x Ralph Lauren ‘Negroni Bear’ Polo Bear Watch introduction, Ralph Lauren asked our Founder, Wei Koh to be part of the launch of the new Ralph Lauren Polo watch collection.

There have been a number of important milestones on the path that has led to the glorious addition to the horological canon you see before you. Perhaps the earliest was the moment in the late 1960s when Ralph Rueben Lifshitz, born in the Bronx in 1939 to Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants from Belarus, left his job at Brooks Brothers to run a necktie company from a tiny space within the Empire State Building. Another came shortly afterwards, in 1972, when the polo player motif, mallet raised aloft in the moments before a ball is struck goal-wards (as prophetic a statement of intent as has existed in the history of fashion) was introduced.
