Ralph Lauren Sporting Watch Inspired by Vintage Bugatti

Drawing inspiration from the vintage ride owned by the designer, the 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic coupe, the Ralph Lauren Sporting Watch is now available for purchase as a part of a new addition to the Sporting collection. Combining luxurious wood finish of the Bugatti with a matte black dial, all of which are reminiscent of the car’s interior, the watch retails for US$13,200.

Arabic numerals for increased legibility, arrow-shaped hour and minute hands, as well as an elm burl frame, are all among the highlights of the new product.

Ralph Lauren himself has an extensive personal collection that reportedly includes the finest models ever made. The
designer’s Sporting line brings the number of timepiece collections to three, joining the Stirrup and Slim Classique lines.

“I have always designed with the goal of creating an entire world. For more than 40 years, this vision has led me from making a man’s tie to his suit, to his wife’s clothes, to their children’s outfits, to outfitting their homes, designing their luggage and handbags and creating their fragrances,” Ralph Lauren says.

“Today, I endeavor to add something to this iconic world - an exquisite collection of watches that set the standard for design and craftsmanship. They represent everything I stand for in terms of quality, ingenuity, and beauty. This collaboration with the Richemont Group has led to something remarkable: the finest, most beautiful watches in the world. They are the prefect finishing touch,” he added.
