Ralph Lauren Introduces
the Minute Repeater Timepiece
The Ralph Lauren Minute Repeater—a rare, exclusive timepiece—brings together the glamorous style of the Art Deco age with one of horology’s most intricate and prestigious complications.
This marriage of past and present, of time-honored handcraftsmanship and modern elegance, requires the utmost technical expertise to achieve its micro mechanism. Struck on demand by a slide piece on a thin, 42 mm white gold case, the Minute Repeater features three distinct sounds for the hours, quarter-hours, and minutes. The hand-wound RL888 movement, with its 100-hour power reserve, is equipped with an additional complication that offers needed protection between the caliber and the activating lever at the side of the case, ensuring the timepiece’s 30-meter water resistance.
Created on an antique rose engine by a master engraver, hand-guilloché designs complement the sophisticated complication with an intricate barleycorn pattern of 80 waves spiraling from the center of the watch and adorning the bezel. A small seconds subdial at the 6 o’clock position further emphasizes the Art Deco–inspired geometry of the dial, highlighted against a black alligator leather strap.
While the refined materials and guilloché decorations of the timepiece demonstrate a respect for tradition, the cutting-edge calibers of the Minute Repeater complication exemplify Ralph Lauren’s eye for innovation in the world of haute horology.
