Ralph Lauren’s Safari RL67 line of cool looking watches has just gotten its highlight model, a remarkable tourbillon timepiece that brings a high level of elegance to the brand’s Sporting Collection. Besides its technical excellence, the great quality of this watch is its design that establishes a perfect harmony among contrast elements. Thus, robustness and the bold appearance which are characteristic for sport models form a beautiful unity with a striking gunmetal finish and a stylish leather strap. Finally, a combination of different finishes makes each part of the Ralph Lauren Safari RL67 Tourbillon watch special and striking.
So far, this is definitely the most attractive and the most quality timepiece of the RL67Safari line, as well as of the entire Sporting Collection. New Ralph Lauren’s timepiece demonstrates the refinement and the brand’s excellence in design. The first that you will notice is its robust, 44.80 mm case, made of stainless steel with a very distinctive blackened gunmetal finish. That is not all. Its components, including a bezel, lugs, a crown and 6 screws are marked by different finishes, all applied by hand (polished, sandblasted, brushed and chamfered).
A black dial with sandblasted finish also deserves the highest marks for its exceptional design. The minute scale at the outer rim surrounds stylish Roman numerals and the central part which includes polished black hands and the tourbillon cage, revealed at the 6 o’clock position. Housing a balance wheel, a hairspring and an escapement, this cage incorporates a large blackened bridge, bearing a small seconds sub-dial with an interesting smiley image at its base.
The watch is powered by a RL67 self-winding movement that beats at the frequency of 28’800 alternations per hour and ensures the power-reserve of 38 hours. This movement, including its gold plated micro rotor, is visible through a sapphire crystal case-back.
Ralph Lauren RL67 Safari Tourbillon watch is water-resistant up to 50 meters and it is available with a polished brown leather strap.
