Posted on: 03/06/2019
Why is it always difficult to find Father’s Day gifts? You’ve spent countless hours with your dad and you know him more than anyone. You know exactly what he’s interested in and what his favourite hobbies are, yet you still struggle when Father’s Day comes around.
This year, the search for the perfect Father’s Day gift doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful. The Lacoste 12.12 watch collection embraces colour with its range of tennis-inspired watches that your dad can wear and love all year round.
Inspired by the Lacoste Polo Shirt
Did you know that the first ever Lacoste polo shirt was created by French tennis player Rene Lacoste in 1927? Nicknamed ‘The Crocodile’, Rene Lacoste printed the Lacoste crocodile logo on the right chest area of the polo shirt. Since then many brands use this logo location for their garments too.
The Lacoste brand decided to combine a classic timepiece with their iconic polo shirt to birth the Lacoste 12.12 watch. Embracing the tennis vibe, the watch features bar hour markers inspired by the piping on a tennis court. The silicone strap takes its pattern from the texture of the Lacoste Polo shirt too!
The 12.12 watch comes in many colours including green, navy blue, black and white, perfect for a dad who loves colour or wants to match to his other Lacoste fashion pieces. Let us know what your favourite colour is on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
