This Is The Bugatti-Inspired Ralph Lauren Skeleton Automotive Watch

If you’re going to make a watch worth $35,000, we guess it’s only appropriate that it’s inspired by a car worth $40 million. That’s exactly the case with the Ralph Lauren Skeleton Automotive Watch, which takes its cues from the designer’s very own award-winning 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe.

A first for Ralph Lauren, the timepiece features an exposed movement, giving you a clear view of the precision mechanism powering the horological creation. The hand-wound RL1967 caliber movement is visible both front and back, giving you a clear view of the underlying magic from a variety of angles.

While the open-worked movement is a huge part of the Ralph Lauren Skeleton Automotive Watch, it isn’t just its only defining element. Emulating the appearance of a vintage Bugatti’s dashboard, the dial is surrounded by a bezel of Amboyna burl wood, a commonly-used material in the instrument panels of luxury automobiles in the 1930s. A black finish across the plates and bridges helps accentuate the depth of movement, with the black oxidized hands coated in beige Super-Luminova further enriching the stunning visuals. Other features include steel and brass elements on the gear train, a large balance oscillating at 18,000 vph, and a black shot-blasted stainless steel case.

    Very beautiful watch! I love Ralph Lauren clothes, and although they can be pricey at times, it’s definitely worth the investment–as they last much longer than other brands and look a lot nicer. I personally hit stores like Marshals and find a lot of their nicer shirts and ties for a fraction of the price, so you just have to shop around. I hope they start creating businesses that rent-watches! Would love to wear this to a special event or work a few times, very nice.
