This isn’t a new watch. American designer Ralph Lauren has shrunk its older version of Sporting Classic Chronometer 45mm to a new, small sized 39mm case, making it suitable for more formal occasions. The new Sporting Classic Chronometer 39mm features a bold black matte galvanic dial accented with shiny white Roman numerals, a seconds subdial, a printed railroad-style minute track and stylish Breguet-style hands.
Finished with a luxurious alligator strap, this watch is driven by a self-winding RL366 mechanical movement, manufactured in Switzerland and COSC-certified. It offers 42 hours of power reserve and is finished with vertical Côtes de Genève and perlage.
The case, in polished stainless steel, measures 38.7mm x 11.2mm. It has an AR-coated sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 100 meters.
The Ralph Lauren Sporting Classic Chronometer 39m was introduced at the annual Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2014 and is available now for $4,000.
