tradition

Astonishing in its beauty and precision, guilloché is one of watchmaking’s rarest art forms. Engraved patterns interlace, creating lines often so fine that they are barely visible to the naked eye.

Created using a rose engine that dates back to the late 19th century, the unique guilloché pattern featured in the Ralph Lauren Slim Classique collection adorns the dial with a distinct barleycorn design made up of 80 waves circling from the outer edges to the center of the dial.

Each line is crafted by a master engraver, who skillfully controls the speed and pressure of the rose engine to ensure the flawless depth and symmetry of the pattern. Additional guilloché patterns frame the dial’s Roman numerals and embellish the elegant bezel, representing traditional watchmaking excellence at its most exquisite.

Those few individuals with the patience, dexterity and passion necessary to master the craft are as rare a breed as the rose engines themselves. While at one time guilloché was a thriving art practiced by more than a thousand craftsmen in Switzerland, today the country has only four full-time guillocheurs.

In preserving and presenting the art of authentic guilloché, the Ralph Lauren Slim Classique collection evokes the rich history of some of the finest techniques of traditional watchmaking.

provenance

Ralph Lauren always has had a passion for watches and had aspired to enter the world of luxury watches for many years. In Richemont, he has found the perfect partner to help him realize his vision.

The collaboration between Ralph Lauren and Richemont represents more than a joint venture between two companies. It is a true partnership between two men—Ralph Lauren, chairman and chief executive officer of Ralph Lauren Corporation, and Johann Rupert, executive chairman of Richemont—who share the same passions for attention to detail and quality that are so important in the world of high-end watchmaking.
