Cartier and the Duchess

Sounds just like a fairy story, and it is really – for all the paid ambassadors of a brand there are out there, you cannot beat an endorsement of members of the Royal family themselves picking to wear your band. Marketing money just cant buy!

It seems our most recent Duchesses are rather fond of the Cartier timepieces they own. 

The Duchess of Sussex  owns, and still wears, her two tone Cartier Tank Française watch, {which retails from £4,800 for the small face model} She tells the media she treated herself once her role in ‘Suits’ was confirmed for the third season, marking a milestone in ‘making it’ for her.  Its engraved on the back with “To M.M. From M.M.”  – from herself to herself; for a job well done. 

The Duchess of Cambridge received the Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch for her third wedding anniversary in 2014. {retailing at £4,950 for the steel model} The watch is famously set with a tiny sapphire, a perfect match for her engagement ring.

The Cartier brand has a special significance to Prince William whose late mother always wore a Cartier watch, and gave him a specially-engraved timepiece for one of his birthdays when he was younger.

If you want Cartier to make you feel like a princess you have your pick of models from around £3,000 to the breathtaking Tank Cintree at £87,000.
