Ralph Lauren expands its watch offerings with Polo Vintage 67, a new collection of manual-wind watches styled to evoke the look of timepieces of the 1920s and 1930s.
The collection features time-only models with distinctive, retro-styled black lacquer numerals, hands and markers, all set within an equally vintage-styled opaline silvered dial. A handsome boxed sapphire crystal tops the nicely proportioned dial, which also features a sub-seconds display.
This new series is decidedly more classically designed than the recent Ralph Lauren Polo models with the brand’s Polo Bear or Polo Pony on their dials.
Inside the 40mm aged-steel case Ralph Lauren places a customized La Joux-Perret manual-wind movement that offers an impressive ninety-hour power reserve. From the clear sapphire caseback the owner can eye the movement, which exposes its hand-finished vertical Côtes de Genève stripes and circular graining.
Ralph Lauren attaches an interchangeable burnished tan calf strap (with a removable back pad) to the watch. While Ralph Lauren has thoughtfully pre-aged the Polo Vintage 67’s case and dial style, the strap will age slowly as you wear it.
