Recently (unless you live under a rock), the whole world took notice of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding. While Harry himself did not don a watch for his wedding, enthusiasts did spot a Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronograph on Prince Charles’s wrist and an Omega Seamaster on Prince William’s wrist. But we want to take a look at what Prince Harry and Prince William have favored over the years. Both Prince William and Prince Harry show their own sense of style in the timepieces they’ve chosen.
Prince William has been spotted wearing the Omega Seamaster Quartz 300m Mid-Size quite often, and, as it was rumored to be gifted to him by his late mother, Princess Diana, we love to see it on his wrist. He did actually wear this watch to his wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011. Both casual and elegant, Prince William definitely favors the timepiece also known as the James Bond watch, the blue Seamaster in the Bond movies: GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day.
Prince Harry, on the other hand, has been caught wearing a crown on his wrist. Prince Harry previously donned an Explorer 2 ref. 216750 “Polar” during his service in the military. We haven’t spotted the Explorer 2 on his wrist lately, but we’re hoping he hasn’t abandoned it just yet. A durable yet beautifully crafted timepiece, the Explorer 2 catches the eye (especially on the wrist of a man so regal). Definitely a good choice for the extreme weather conditions of Afghanistan, where he served multiple terms. Prince Harry is completely dedicated to his military family in launching the Invictus Games (hosted in Sydney this year in October). The Invictus Games is like Olympics for wounded soldiers. Being a soldier himself, its moving to see what he has done for wounded soldiers in giving them a chance to compete in games such as this. Kudos to Prince Harry.
Back to the wrist though, Everest is incredibly excited to announce a new line up of Explorer 2 Everest Rubber Watch Bands will be available later this year - you’ve asked and we’ve listened! How amazing will an Orange Rubber Watch Strap look on the Polar Explorer 2?
