Sporting Chronograph Guilloché Steel / Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren unveiled three very interesting Sporting timepieces at SIHH 2011 this past January. The Sporting Watch (with unique Burled wood dial), the Sporting Chronograph Black Ceramic and the Sporting Chronograph Guilloche steel. The guilloché-work on the chronograph is not something you see much in this price range, making it maybe the most compelling of the three new sporting models.

This particular watch has guilloche-work, which is very intricate and adds to the beauty and value of the timepiece. Guilloché is a decorative engraving technique in which a very precise intricate repetitive pattern or design is mechanically engraved into an underlying material with fine detail. Guilloche is done with a machine, however, the machine is operated manually and requires a very skilled hand. This makes this particular version of the Sporting Chronograph cost a few thousand dollars more than the black ceramic model. But this is also what makes this particular version, that much more appealing the the ceramic model (or the previous steel RL Chronograph) — via Professional Watches
