Ralph Lauren’s new Minute Repeater is an instant classic

We don’t often hear much about Ralph Lauren watches, perhaps their marketing is as subtle as their designs! For 2017, the brand has launched the Ralph Lauren Minute Repeater. There is nothing showy or ostentatious about this watch, it’s simple and understated with only a detailed bezel to give it a distinguishing detail.

The detail on the dial has been created on an antique rose engine by a master engraver. The hand-guilloché designs continue on the bezel as an interesting detail that doesn’t distract from the overall design of the watch.

The watch is powered by a manually wound caliber RL888 with 100 hours of power reserve.

On the side of the 42 mm white gold case you can see a lever that triggers the Minute Repeater’s three distinct sounds for the hours, quarter- hours, and minutes.

The watch is priced at $206,000. Its aesthetic may be simple, but since there is often a dearth of simple design in the minute repeater watch category, this one is sure to be well received.
