Nothing is ever scandal-free when it comes to the British royal family. You don’t need to be a dedicated royal-watcher or even a big fan of Netflix’s The Crown (which came back over the weekend with its fourth season) to know that, either. But a recent Vanity Fair headline caught my attention especially quickly, answering the burning question I didn’t know I needed to be asking: How did Meghan Markle wind up with Princess Diana’s favorite watch, a gold replica Cartier Tank Française?
I won’t totally spoil the tale for you here (you’ll have to click through and read the VF piece for that), but it’s way more complicated than you might expect. Princess Diana owned quite a few watches, including multiple cheap AAA fake Cartier Tank watches and an engraved Patek Philippe given to her by her then-husband, Prince Charles, just after the birth of their first son, Prince William. Since Princess Diana was photographed basically non-stop, there is a pretty robust visual record of these watches. Just do a quick Google search, and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
When it comes to the best replica Tank Française in question (a solid-gold model on a matching gold bracelet), it’s not exactly clear who gave the watch to Diana, how it ended up with Prince Harry, and if it’s actually the exact same watch Markle has been seen wearing recently. The watch has been the subject of speculation for some time, with various news outlets reporting on it over the last 25 years or so, but this latest development is the first time this watch has popped up in quite a while.
Now, does the quality fake Tank Française make an on-screen appearance in the latest season of The Crown? Honestly, I have no idea. It was a busy weekend, so as of writing this, I’m only one episode in. If you’ve got a better answer than that, let us know down in the comments below!
Perhaps the creature’s most famous association has been with storied house of Swiss movement fake Cartier. Its first appearance at the Maison was as a graphic pattern of white diamonds and onyx, an evocation of its spotted pelt, on a woman’s bracelet watch in 1914. That same year, the artist George Barbier was commissioned by Louis Cartier, grandson of the company’s founder, to illustrate Dame à la Panthère (‘Lady with a Panther’) as a display card for new jewellery collection. It depicted a woman in a long white gown and ropes of pearls, a black panther reclining at her feet, and was reputedly modelled on Barbier’s friend Jeanne Toussaint, a creative visionary who had herself been nicknamed ‘the panther’ for her fierce determination.
Precious little is known about Toussaint’s early life. Born in Belgium in 1887 to a lace-making family, she left home at 13 and worked as a model in Paris. Later, as a member of the city’s café society, she counted Coco Chanel, Cecil Beaton (who famously described her looks as ‘birdlike’) and Louis Cartier among her inner circle. The best Cartier replica watch and Toussaint soon became lovers and, in 1917, he gave her a cigarette case bearing the house’s first figurative representation of the panthère, a platinum and onyx beast pacing between two emerald trees.
Keen to capitalise on Toussaint’s natural flair and exquisite personal taste, white gold case copy Cartier recruited her to oversee women’s handbags at his family firm in the early 1920s, before quickly promoting her to head of the silver accessories department. Like her friend Coco Chanel, Toussaint understood the inextricable connection between the worlds of fashion and fine jewellery. After her appointment as creative director of jewellery in 1933, she moved the Maison away from the abstract, stylised panthers that had dominated Cartier’s repertoire in favour of a pride of sinuous creatures sculpted from fashionable yellow gold and colourful stones like coral, sapphire and emeralds.
If you’re anything like British actress Maisie Williams, you are certainly not afraid to stand out in a crowd. Though the Game of Thrones alum and fashion fan has been known to wear matching outfits with boyfriend Reuben Selby and dye her locks pastel hues, this fall Williams is trying out a new accessory. For her L’Officiel USA cover, Williams sports the new best Pasha de Cartier replica watch for sale —for which she is an ambassador—and an eclectic mix of gold and white gold rings, bracelets, and necklaces. Any jewelry lover will tell you that mixing metals is a major way to make a statement, and if you’re looking for a master class in mixing, look no further. Try out the look by stacking Clash de Cartier and Juste un Clou rings, and don’t be afraid to pair a gold watch with a white gold bangle.
