The Ralph Lauren Automotive Skeleton Watch is the first open-worked timepiece by the American fashion brand. This intricate watch is a part of the 2015 Ralph Lauren Automotive collection and it is the most interest Ralph Lauren watch yet.

The Automotive Skeleton Watch is inspired by the designer's very own 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe. The watch's elm burl wood dials, amboyna burl wood bezels and black alligator straps mirror the automobile's lush interior whereas the Arabic numerals are inspired by the car's notable gauges. The Automotive Skeleton Watch is powered by a custom IWC hand-wound caliber RL1967 and encased inside of a gunmetal steel 44.8 mm case.

Wearers of this Ralph Lauren watch can witness its powerful mechanical movements through its smoky sapphire crystal caseback.
