Ralph Lauren Slim Classique is an Instant Classic


Like many man-made objects, watches tend to reflect the era in which they were made. Notice how we threw that “tend” in there; that’s because you see quite a few modern watches whose design harks back to the olden days by being simpler and less frivolous. And few big-name apparel and accessory brands do simpler and less frivolous better than Ralph Lauren.


Officially titled the Ralph Lauren Slim Classique, this baby teams a stylish 18 karat gold case with your choice of a blue or purple dial adorned with Roman numerals and a bezel featuring a Barleycorn guilloché bezel with or without 60 brilliant-cut diamonds. The gold varnished Breguet-style hour and minute hands are driven by a Swiss-made caliber RL057 quartz movement, and the whole thing is water resistant to depths of 30 meters (99 ft.). Just goes to show you don’t have to buy vintage to look vintage.
