Ralph Lauren Safari Watch Unveils 42MM Version

Ralph Lauren Safari watch debuts in a new 42mm size and three different iterations while maintaining its Chronometer certification. 

The Safari watch, like the other models in the collection, is inspired by the lifestyle of the fashion designer who gives the brand its name, here in the Safari apparel collection from the 80s. The watch would only appear in 2013, wearing a gunmetal case in two different sizes, 39 and 45mm, and coming with a Chronometer certified movement. 

Today the watch arrives in a 42mm mid-size, maintaining the entire previous layout, with three color options on the dial, including black, khaki beige and camouflage green and with the new movement also Chronometer certified following its lineage. 

On the outside, the watch wears a stainless steel case measuring 42mm wide by 11.50mm high, which comes with a black coat, preserving the rustic appearance, a smooth bezel secured with 6 screws and whose formula is replicated on the rear case, the lugs also follow the theme and are designed with screws at each end, sapphire glass, screw-down crown at 3 o’clock with the brand’s logo and 100m waterproof. 

The dials come with a snailed pattern, featuring oversized Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock that are filled with Super-LumiNova in beige tone in the black and camo variants and in black tone in the beige iteraction, and the same applies to the hours and minutes hands, and finally, an orange center seconds hand. 

Inside it now operates the RL300-1 automatic movement based on the Sellita SW300-1 which is COSC certified, operating 28,800 Vph and offering up to 50 hours of power reserve. 

The watches can come with three different strap options, a brown Bund leather strap, or an olive green Canvas strap with either of them costing €3,600, or with a 3-row steel bracelet matching the case for  €4,050.
