Did you know that the classic cotton petit pique Lacoste polo shirt is designed by the tennis legend René Lacoste in 1927? He was so tenacious on the court that the athlete was nicknamed the "crocodile"!
A lifestyle polo shirt that was once used for sports for its sweat absorption and freedom of movement, René Lacoste named this the L.12.12.

L - Lacoste
1 - one-of-a-kind-facbric
2 - for its short sleeves
12 - for the number of the final version of the design he selected for production
Heralding the birth of contemporary sportswear, the L.12.12 has remained a beloved wardrobe staple for the elegantly athletic.
Lacoste’s sporting spirit is reignited in the Lacoste.12.12 watch collection, with a timely launch last December 12, held by country distributor Artful Marketing, Inc. (a subsidiary of the Lucerne Group) and global licensee Movado Group, Inc.
“Much like the classic polo shirt it is named after, the Lacoste.12.12 watch embodies the brand’s rich history of designing crisp, elegant pieces, and we are really excited to be bringing its 2014 Holiday collection to Manila,” says Julian Addison, MGI President for Asia Pacific. “Filipinos seem to have a tasteful yet practical sense of aesthetics - values that are manifest in these timepieces.”
The Lacoste 12.12 is available in 6 colors, including blue, green red, black, grey, white. Everything's so beautiful, it's so hard to choose!
The simple style makes this watch another classic Lacoste, with the soft-touch silicone strap imitating the petit pique mesh effect. The legendary green crocodile adorns this timepiece--something that I can wear again and again just like its predecessor polo shirt.
