Lacoste Watches

Lacoste watches

Sporty, sophisticated, and effortlessly cool, Lacoste watches represent everything the legendary athletics brand is adored for. Created by French tennis legend René Lacoste, who was nicknamed ‘the crocodile' due to his on-court tenacity, the first Lacoste polo shirt debuted in 1933. It featured the emblematic croc motif and became the go-to uniform for the more discerning player.

60 years later, Lacoste released its first watch, which replicated the fresh, preppy look of the classic polo shirt. Today, the collection is even more diverse. From sophisticated, handsome pieces that replace the croc with a more subtle Lacoste logo to colour-popping models, there's a Lacoste watch to suit everyone's sporty, sophisticated, and stylish side.
