The Grand Masters might not agree but to me Chess seems to be a game you can relax with. The planning of a move and the anticipation of the counter move is invigorating intellectually. You could relax with a drink over a game. That is the beauty of chess. When it comes to the Chess set you have a wide variety of choices. Right from the very simple, to the unusual, to the very exclusive. If you are looking for a chess set with class that is exclusive you must have look at the Ralph Lauren’s Hammond chess set.
The Hammond chess set is made from rich leather and blackened nickel. It has that sober and serious tone that is required for while contemplating your next move. The blackened nickel board and chessmen flaunt a minimalist modern design and the black leather base houses all game content. It will go very well with your interiors if it has been done with rose wood and leather.
The chess set comes with a unique number inscribed on it that indicates that it is not a mass produced item but a collector’s item. The plaque under lid bears the signature “Ralph Lauren” along with the unique number.
