Last week, Kate debuted a truly stunning Cartier Ballon de Bleu watch when she visited Northolt High School. It complimented her outfit so beautifully, and many Kate-watchers noted that the timepiece was a perfect investment – it could easily coordinate with jeans and a sweater as well as a cocktail dress and heels.
A watch is a very personal investment. Some people have dainty wrists which require small pieces, while other women love the look of a large, men’s style watch. It should be comfortable, well-fitted, and classic in style to last you a while. Kate has recently shown off two beautiful watches; the previously-mention Cartier and a watch by Tissot, which she has owned for many years. Personally, I love both styles of watches. They are so classic and despite their larger size they remain feminine. As soon as I saw the Cartier watch, I scoured the internet for the perfect repliKate.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s Cartier watch costs a whopping $6,000. The watch is timeless, but the small details make it interesting. The hands are a bright blue color and the numbers are large roman numerals. On the left, there is a subtle sapphire on the watch’s crank. This watch by Peugeot nearly identical. With blue handles, roman numerals, identical coloring and nearly-identical style, you are sure to receive compliments. The lack of sapphire on the side can easily be fixed (if you are willing to) with a dab of sapphire blue nail polish.
Kate’s other watch is equally as timeless and gorgeous. Her Tissot watch was sold until 2005, although Tissot sells very similar styles as well. The gold ring around the mother-of-pearl face makes the piece glow. The rest of the watch is simple yet beautiful, with gold detailing on the band. This piece of Armitron is a great lookalike for the Duchess of Cambridge’s watch. The gold frame around the face and stones inlaid into the mother-of-pearl make both pieces classic investments in your wardrobe.
