Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este is an elegant competition for classic and vintage cars taking place at Villa d’Este on the shores of Lake Como, Italy.The winner of this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza “Best of Show” title is Ralph Lauren’s 1938 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic Coupé. Lending support to the event since last two years, A. Lange & Söhne has designed a unique Lange 1 Timezone for the winner. Mr. Ralph Lauren has been awarded the one-off timepiece in white gold sporting a Como on the dial and a special caseback. The Concorso model of the Lange 1 Timezone displays time in 24 time zones along with home time too.
Because it indicates two time zones, the watch also stands for the art of travelling in style. The caseback of the white-gold watch displays the hand-engraved coat of arms of the Concorso d’Eleganza. On the rotatable city ring, Como represents Central European Time – as homage to the venue.
A fitting compliment of a beautiful timepiece which runs on the wheels for a gorgeous car which also runs on wheels.
