With the 2018 Watches & Wonders show taking place in the heart of the Miami Design District this week, Ralph Lauren has just revealed an all-new steel version of its RL Automative Skeleton, the company’s first open-worked timepiece.

Similar to the original Bugatti-inspired RL Automative Skeleton, the watch’s overall composition now boasts a full stainless steel build along with an Amboyna burl wood bezel surrounding the dial which is secured by screws, referencing rivets that reinforce the chassis of a classic 1950’s race car.

The luxurious silver and brown theme of the timepiece can further be solidified with a matching and interchangeable croc-skin leather strap, while it’s powered by a 2.5Hz hand-wound Swiss-made F.A. Jones mechanical movement that has been customized by Val Fleurier for Ralph Lauren, carrying a power reserve of 45 hours.

With the retail price listed at $34,200 USD, learn more about the timepiece directly at Ralph Lauren.
