A closer look at the new Pride Edition Sport Loop.
Pride script woven into the band
Made with pride, featuring vibrant colors that honor the strength and inclusivity of the LGBTQ+ community
Matching animated Pride watch face
Inspired by the strength and inclusivity of the LGBTQ+ community, the Pride Edition Sport Loop displays a vibrant gradient that unites the core Pride flag and five new colors: Black and brown symbolize marginalized LGBTQ+ communities of color, as well as those currently living with HIV/AIDS and those who have passed away from it. Light blue, pink, and white honor trans and gender nonconforming people.
Utilizing the Sport Loop form, the band features a double-layer nylon weave composed of soft and breathable textile loops. To create the Pride script, some of these textile loops were removed, resulting in a three-dimensional texture you can see and feel. On the reverse side, the attachment loops are securely anchored for superior durability. The hook-and-loop fastener allows for quick and easy adjustment.
