This year Lacoste celebrates its 85th anniversary with the all new 12.12 Chronograph. This tribute-timepiece revisits its Lacoste 12.12 roots, which pays homage to the iconic polo shirt created in 1933 by founder René Lacoste. The Lacoste 12.12 Chronograph 85th Anniversary watch is a modern reinterpretation of the iconic motifs that have given the Lacoste crocodile its world renowned status for over eight decades. Influenced by both sport and style, the Lacoste 12.12 Chronograph 85th Anniversary watch features either a black, navy blue or khaki monotone aesthetic.
Each watch in the Lacoste 12.12 85th Anniversary collection is marked on the case back with a Lacoste logo that has been specifically created for the occasion. Featuring a 42mm dial, this new model boasts a minimalist dial with indexes, hour and minute hands, a second hand and three tone on tone counters. To honour Lacoste's origins and traditions, the infamous Lacoste crocodile is displayed at 3 o'clock whilst a leather bracelet is embossed with a petit-pique motif to enhance the shape of the watch.
