Combining his passion for fine automobiles with his passion for fine timepieces, Ralph Lauren unveils the Ralph Lauren Automotive watch with wood dial, recalling the refined interior of his 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe. This timepiece features a stainless steel case with a warmly handsome dial in rich loupe d'orme or elm burlwood–in honor of the car's iconic wooden dashboard and trim detail. Prized for its highly figured patterns and rarity, each piece of elm burlwood has unique grain, and has been traditionally used by artists and sculptors and in the consoles of luxury cars. The warmth of the wood is contrasted by the dial's matte black galvanic center and by the black calf leather strap, reminiscent of the distinct juxtaposition of the wooden dashboard and black leather seating in the automobile. Showcasing both beauty and functionality, the Ralph Lauren Sporting watch combines bygone motoring elegance with the precision of a manual winding mechanical movement–caliber RL98295 made by IWC for Ralph Lauren–featuring a power reserve of 45 hours and a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour.
Ever since the Ralph Lauren brand was founded, it has been synonymous with elegance, refinement and timelessness – and the same values are present in the brand’s timepieces.Find out more >
