Watches of the British Royal Family

The British monarchy is without a doubt the most famous royal family in the world. They have remained the subject of fascination (and sometimes, scrutiny), so all eyes are on them when they step out in public.

Royals abide by very specific rules when it comes to dressing up; and they hold the wristwatch with high regard when choosing accessories. Check out the timepieces of the British Royal Family.


Seamaster Midsize


Prince William

Prince William has been wearing his quartz mid-sized Omega Seamaster Blue Wave Dial watch for over a decade now. This particular timepiece was given to him by his mother, the late Princess Diana, and has been his go-to timepiece ever since – he even wore it during his wedding to Kate Middleton.


Explorer II 42 Orange Hand


Prince Harry

During his time in the military, Prince Harry frequently wore his Rolex Explorer II White Dial Orange Hand a.k.a. Polar. Designed for cave explorers, the Polar has a robust build, highly legible dial, and a 24-hour bezel and orange hand that helps distinguish night and day. This adventurer’s watch was a perfect choice for the harsh conditions of his assignment.



Cartier Santos
Prince Charles was often seen wearing a two-tone Cartier Santos and a yellow gold Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso back in the day. These days, he sports a Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronograph.


Ballon Bleu


Kate Middleton

Kate is well-known for her elegant and timeless style; and her sartorial sense is admired by women the world over. She sports the classic and delicate Cartier Ballon Bleu in stainless steel. With a blue spinel cabochon floating like a balloon on its side, it’s a perfect match for the sapphire engagement ring given to her by Prince William.


Tank Francaise


Meghan Markle

Meghan’s Cartier Tank Francaise was acquired even before she became a royal, but the classic timepiece suits her current tailored ensembles and is in line with the royal family’s taste. She rewarded herself with the watch after the third season of Suits, and it’s engraved at the back with the message “To M.M., from M.M.”



Audemars Piguet
The queen has an extensive collection of jewelry watches from Patek Philippe, Chopard, and Audemars Piguet. She currently wears an 18k yellow gold ladies Audemars Piguet timepiece.


Tank Francaise Leather Strap


Camilla Parker Bowles

The Duchess of Cornwall has kept her elegant but down-to-earth style when she officially joined the royal family in 2005. Like the rest of the ladies in the family, she wears a Cartier watch – a yellow gold Tank with a leather strap.


AP Royal Oak Rose Gold Mens Watch


Prince Michael of Kent

Queen Elizabeth’s first cousin is not as visible as the immediate family, but he makes up for it by always being impeccably dressed. He wears a two-tone, steel and rose gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak under the cuff.
