The Lamborghini Aventador has inspired yet another flashy accessory that fans of the supercar will have to keep an eye out for – the Avenger Vertical Tourbillon Watch.

Designed by Marko Petrovic, this timepiece is still in the concept stage, but pictures of the Avenger Vertical Tourbillon promise great things from this luxury watch. Outfitted in black and orange, this watch takes style cues from the Aventador’s engine. Its face is styled after the Aventador’s engine cover and even features an engine roll bar. Holding it in place is a tire tread-like wrist band.

Since it’s still just a concept, there are no official specs, prices or a release date. But if it’s anything like its inspiration, it will be expensive and exclusive. We’ll keep you posted on updates and availability when they become available.

Embodying sophistication and style, there’s only one designer up to the task of creating a signature Bugatti timepiece, and that’s Ralph Lauren.

Ralph Lauren may be best known as being an upscale clothing designer, but the man behind the legend is also the proud owner of one of the finest classic car collections around, which includes a 1938 Bugatti.  That’s why he designed a watch that would go perfectly with it.

The latest timepiece in Lauren’s Sporting Watch collection is influenced by the interior of the Atlantic and is outfitted with an elm burl wood ring that’s styled after the car’s dashboard. It also features a galvanized matte black dial with white Arabic numerals like the Bugatti’s gauges, and visible screws around the case front. The watch’s movement is made for Ralph Lauren by the Richemont group (the same company that makes Cartier, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Panerai and IWC – and features a 45-hour power reserve.

You can pick up one of these watches for $13,200, and don’t worry, it will look great no matter what you’re driving.
