The 867 Diamond Watch by Ralph Lauren

By Paul Joseph

Amongst the array of eye-catching models unveiled at last month’s Baselworld watch fair in Switzerland was a dazzling addition to Ralph Lauren’s collection of luxury timepieces.

Designed as a homage to the pre-war Art Deco Era, the Ralph Lauren 867 has been named after the brand’s flagship store at 867 Madison Avenue in New York.

The watch boasts an 18-karat white gold square case containing round and baguette-cut diamond encrusts.

A delicate diamond motif continues halfway down the black suede straps and along the 18-karat white gold clasps, whilst a silver opaline dial encases domed black Roman and Arabic numerals.

Other notable features include a caliber RL430 movement and a power reserve of 40 hours.

Better known for their luxury apparel, Ralph Lauren have diversified in recent years by creating a range of luxury goods and accessories including high-end watches.
