We ourselves take inspiration from our environment and the many things around us and I bet if one of my most-prized possessions was a 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic coupe, my creative juices would consistently flow like the Nile. The good folks at Hodinkee have an exclusive look at the all-new Ralph Lauren Sporting Watch and boy is it an eye-popper. Much inspiration is pulled from the aforementioned Bugatti 57SC such as the outer dial of the RL Sporting Watch which is made from elm burl, the same type of wood found on the dash of Lauren’s Bugatti. The watch also features a matte black galvanic dial that, just like the gages on the Atlantic coupe, feature Arabic numerals for increased legibility. No detail was spared when crafting this innovative timepiece.
The RL Sporting Watch features a sapphire exhibition caseback allowing full viewing of the RL Caliber RL98295, which happens to be made by IWC. Legit? We think so, but for more information on this timepiece including pricing, head over to Hodinkee.
