Go Gear: Keep pace with a luxury motoring-inspired watch

Style and design are important to both cars and watches, so it makes sense to combine the two.

Bugatti brilliance
He is one of the world's top fashion designers and a massive car enthusiast, so it makes sense that Ralph Lauren designed a watch dedicated to his not one but two Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantics. This watch has an elm burlwood ring to match the car's dashboard and a matt black dial surrounded by screws to match the car's rivets. Dh50,000. Visit www.ralphlauren watches.com.
Time for a Ferrari
The influence of Ferrari in the UAE is evident with Ferrari World on Yas Island and so many of the classy Italian cars on the roads, so why not take that association further with a Ferrari Lap Time chronograph, limited to just 399 pieces. As if it's stylish looks weren't enough, the watch comes with a valve from Ferrari's F1 championship-winning car of 2003. Dh2,200; Visit store.ferrari.com.
A graph worth charting
When you combine classic watchmaking with motoring style, this is what you get - the TAG Heuer Monaco Mikrograph Watch, which uses TAG's new 1/100 of a second accurate movement. With more dials than a glorified speedo and a look that sets it apart, it's bound to be a car lover's timepiece of choice. For information visit your nearest TAG dealers in any of the major UAE malls.
