Ralph Lauren, the Couture Cowboy himself, recently introduced a special new watch collection. And any of the pieces would be right at home on the range…or in a high-rise penthouse in Houston.
The iconic fashion brand’s Ralph Lauren American Western Watch line features several pieces, all paying tribute to American western style. Set to be released in limited numbers, each special timepiece features western-evoking details from the case and bezel to the caseback and buckle.
The intricate work is the result of four days’ worth of hand engraving particular to each example, so each watch is quite unique. All are paired with a high-quality, Texas-made leather strap, which is also hand-worked.
Western design may decorate the exterior, but the watches boast high-level craftsmanship when it comes to their works. For example, The Ralph Lauren American Western collection pocket watch features a manually wound RL98295 caliber with 45 hours of power reserve behind all that filigree.
Aside from the pocket watch, classic wristwatches and skeleton watches are also available. The series is priced from $24,000 to $58,000.
