Considered arguably the most prestigious vintage car show in the world, just 50-some vehicles are selected to participate each year. The event takes place at the incredible Villa d’Este (Grand Hotel Tremezzo pictured above – our home for the weekend), and the show has taken place on a weekend in May every year since 1929.

The title sponsor of the Concorso is BMW, but for the past three years, A. Lange & Söhne has been a secondary sponsor – this year presenting a special, limited edition Lange 1 Timezone in white gold customized for the event, where Berlin is replaced with “Como” and a special engraving is featured on the case back. Last year, the winner of the Concorso and this special watch was actually Ralph Lauren.

Here is a look at the actual watch presented to the winner of this year’s Concorso:
