[Press Release] For 2011, Ralph Lauren introduces a new square design inspired by the grand era of Art Deco style.
Celebrating the functional elegance of clean, geometric lines, this style came of age in the 1920s–at the same time as the first generation of wristwatches.
This timepiece’s tastefully restrained size, just 27.5mm wide, likewise reflects the timeless proportions of the iconic dress watch.
With its precise case shape, dial composition of concentric squares, and combination of Roman and Arabic numerals this debonair timepiece embodies the synthesis of classicism and modernity that is Art Deco at its finest.
This watch hosts the calibre RL430–made by Piaget for Ralph Lauren, which offers a 40 hour power reserve, beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour.
Available in rose gold or white gold, including a guilloché reference that continues Ralph Lauren’s devotion to this exquisite and rarefied artform.
