The new Ralph Lauren Sporting watch offers everything you could hope to find in a luxury vintage car -- elegance, quality and smooth movement.

Inspired particularly by the ultra-luxurious 1983 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic coupe, the Ralph Lauren Sporting watch boasts a similar outer dial and woodgrain face much like the dash of the Bugatti. See this interesting timepiece for yourselves in the featured gallery.

Implications - The move towards antique and vintage has affected many departments of the fashion industry, particularly accessories. Watches, sunglasses, hats and jewelry inspired by classic looks from decades past are emerging everywhere, from high-fashion houses to bargain shops, as consumers are looking for fresh takes on old perspectives.
