Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2009

The Ralph Lauren Watch and Jewelry Company announces the launch of its first collection of timepieces to be unveiled in January 2009 at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) watch fair in Geneva, Switzerland.

Last year, Polo Ralph Lauren and Richemont, two leading companies in the global luxury market, announced the formation of the Ralph Lauren Watch and Jewelry Company, S.A.R.L., based in Geneva, Switzerland. In this unique partnership, Polo Ralph Lauren and Richemont formed a joint venture to design, develop, manufacture and distribute luxury watches and fine jewelry through select Ralph Lauren boutiques and the finest independent jewelry and luxury watch retailers globally. The partners each own 50 percent of the new entity and are committed to this joint venture on a long-term basis. This is Richemont’s first such joint venture with a luxury fashion designer and it is Polo Ralph Lauren’s first foray into the precious jewelry and luxury watch businesses.
