Ralph Lauren will present updated versions of the Slim Classique Square collection, which was originally introduced in 2011, and is now referred to as the RL 867, at SIHH next week.

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.

Powering the 867 is manufacture caliber RL430, made by Piaget for Ralph Lauren. It’s 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.

Solid case back. Water-resistance 30 meters. Black alligator strap (white gold) or brown alligator (rose gold) – pin buckle. (Ref.RLR0132701)
