SIHH 2010: Ralph Lauren Slim Classique Collection

Ralph Lauren Slim Classique

White gold, rose gold and platinum cases just 5.35mm thick enclose an ultra-thin Piaget caliber RL430 that is only 2.1mm thick. The thin, round case offers a polished case back that is ideal for personalized engraving. Two rows of diamonds around the bezel surround an elegant silvered opaline dial featuring a delicate barleycorn guilloché pattern. The roman numerals sit atop a second guilloché pattern, and these, along with the Breguet hands, give this Slim Classique a decidedly formal attitude.

The bezel carries over the barleycorn guilloché along with two rows of 96 round, brilliant-cut stones totaling about 1.11 carats. Each gem is grain set. The case measures 42mm in diameter and is water resistant to 30 meters. The mechanical manual winding movement, made by Piaget for Ralph Lauren, has a power reserve of 40 hours.

You can read more about Ralph Lauren’s use of guilloché in the February issue of WatchTime.
