Ralph Lauren’s “Best Of Show” Prize From A. Lange & Söhne At The Concorso d’Eleganza

Ralph Lauren Concorso d'Eleganza

American fashion designer and classic car collector Ralph Lauren has received the coveted “Best of Show” prize at the Concorso d’Eleganza which took place on the shores of the Lake Como last week.

The award was a one of a kind Lange 1 Time Zone which was crafted exclusively for this event and was presented to Mr. Lauren by Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid.

The fine automobile that secured the prize was the 1938 Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic Coupe which was one of the seventeen cars on exhibit at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris back in 2011 and mentioned by us in the post “Ralph Lauren’s Car Collection in Paris“.

The white gold Lange 1 Time Zone case-back displays the hand-engraved coat of arms of the Concorso d’Eleganza and on the rotating city ring, Como represents Central European Time (instead of Berlin) as homage to the venue.
