The fashion and auto world join together quite frequently to produce some of the most elegant and dramatic pieces known to man. While a lot of these example are in the form of a vehicle that has been dressed up by a designer, some come as a fashion accessory inspired by a particular model. Timepieces are huge in this area, and this latest watch from Ralph Lauren is about as elegant a collaboration as one can get.
Ralph Lauren has unveiled a special watch inspired by his very own vintage Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. The Bugatti Sporting watch features a stainless steel case with a matte black dial and a wood finish of loupe d’orme or elm burl–in. These features are a throwback to the Bugatti’s iconic wooden dashboard and trim detail. Furthermore, the watch features Arabic numerals, arrow-shaped hour and minute hands, and a black calf leather strap.
This elegant timepiece is now available through Ralph Lauren’s Sporting collection for a grand price of $13,200. Not exactly cheap, but a heck of a lot better than the price associated with any Bugatti, let along a vintage model.
