January 11, 2012
The RL 867 comes in an elegant 18k gold square case measuring 27.5 x 27.5 mm and a mere 5.75 mm thick. There are three variations available: white gold rose gold and white gold guilloché. The white gold guilloché version will cost the most and should appeal to connoisseurs, as the guilloché-work is done in-house at Ralph Lauren's Swiss watch production facility.

It is a manual winding movement with hours and minutes functions, 18 jewels, 131 components, a 40-hour power reserve and a balance cadence of 21,600 vph (3Hz). The movement has vertical Côtes de Genève and perlage decoration on the plates and bridges.
