Ralph Lauren Slim Classique Square

RL Slim Classique

The Ralph Lauren Slim Classique collection represents modern watchmaking with classical, slender proportions that recall a bygone era. For 2011, Ralph Lauren introduces a new square design inspired by the grand era of Art Deco style. Find technical information, wallpaper and pricing inside.

In an age of increasingly large watches, this timepiece is tastefully restrained at just 27.5mm wide. The case is available in rose gold or white gold, including a guilloché reference (shown below).

Beneath the classic Art Deco dial with its concentric squares and mixed Arabic and Roman numerals is a caliber RL430, made by Piaget for Ralph Lauren. This ultra-thin manual-winding movement beats at 21,600 vph and offers a 40 hour power reserve.

The Ralph Lauren Slim Classique Square is priced at $12,600 in red gold, $13,800 in white gold, and $15,200 in white gold with guilloché. Technical information appears below the images, which may be enlarged with a click.

About Mike Disher

My name is Mike Disher and I am WatchTime's technical editor. My interest in watches dates to 1972 and I caught the internet bug in 1997. In 1999 I combined these interests by joining TimeZone.com as its first full-time employee, and later that year I attended my first Basel Fair. I managed TZ from 2000-2007, and in 2008 I joined WatchTime.
