Official description

Masterfully bridging the automotive and horological worlds, a new stainless steel timepiece is the latest addition to Ralph Lauren’s renowned Automotive collection. This timepiece builds on traditions established by the RL Automotive Skeleton, first introduced in 2015 and inspired by Ralph Lauren's celebrated car collection.

The new steel Skeleton strikes a harmonious balance between industrial power and sophisticated design by artfully cutting away the main plate to reveal the intricate mechanics underneath. The combination of polished and brushed steel components—including polished screws that reference the rivets securing the chassis of a car—directly references one of Mr. Lauren’s prized 1950s race cars. The case measures 44.8mm by 11.2mm and is powered by a Swiss-made F.A. Jones mechanical movement that has been customized by Val Fleurier for Ralph Lauren. The manually wound caliber RL1967 runs at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour with a 45-hour power reserve. The movement is decorated with vertical Côtes de Genève stripes and circular graining, known as perlage, as well as an interlocking “RL” logo over a brushed steel plate at 12 o’clock position.
