Do you know what watch she is wearing, or have you seen a similar one?

Apologies for DM link.

It's a Cartier one. Think it's called Ballon bleu or something like that.

DisforDoraDDDora Wed 20-Jul-16 14:37:20

ahh... Cartier. Out of my reach. Any ideas for a similar style? is this a dual tone, I can't quite see, I like the size, not too chunky, not too dainty.

DisforDoraDDDora Wed 20-Jul-16 14:38:06

It looks elegant and sporty, which I love.

Crikey never mind the watch - look at that bloody ring!!!

LaConnerie Wed 20-Jul-16 15:02:52

I don't like the ring - it looks cheap grin

I bought a gold chunky Orla Kiely watch a few months ago and love it. Totally different to a Cartier, so probably no use, but it's beautiful in it's own way!

Raymond Weil make nice looking watches.

Hundreds rather than thousands which Cartier cost.

Cartier own the patent to the unusual crown setting that the ballon blue range have so you won't find a watch with similar crown unless it is counterfeit

The thing is laconnerie, he's a hedge fund manager so makes it look super gorgeous as clearly it's a bona fide ascher cut? on me it would look cheap as there would be an assumption that it was CZ but she can totally pull it off as genuine.

RW watches are very nice.

What's the verdict on two-tone styles? Stylish or naff?

also what do you think about
Viviennne Westwood rose gold

Viviennne Westwood silver

cheeseandmarmite15 Wed 20-Jul-16 20:58:45

I wouldn't buy a Vivienne Westwood watch. It's a fashion brand like Armani etc. You are paying for the name.

A watch from a watch maker will be far superior in quality.

I am currently coveting this 2 tone Burberry watch:

I really want it as my wedding rings are platinum but these days I wear a lot of gold so think a 2 tone watch might help tie it all together. My engagement ring is an asscher cut diamond too, though just a teeny bit smaller than Pippa's (which I love).

Looks like the DM has noticed Pippa's fancy watch hmm grin.
The burberry one is pretty Sex. I like dual tone watches as I like yellow gold but my wedding and engagement rings are white gold so could be a nice way to integrate a bit of yellow gold bling.

What other dual tone watches are nice?

Thought the ring was gorgeous. She is looking good at the moment. Must have a new stylist!

Thought the watch a little vulgar. Only dress watches should have diamonds.

JohnCheese Fri 22-Jul-16 19:31:23

Love the white dress in the link. Anyone know where it's from?

Meh to the ring. grin

billybigballs Fri 22-Jul-16 19:37:04

I read somewhere the dress is whistles.

Love the watch, not hugely keen on the ring. I don't like the metal bit in between the two layers if you know what I mean. It doesn't look very sparkly? Maybe I need to see it in the flesh.

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Fri 22-Jul-16 19:40:29

Don't like the watch.

Piscivorus Fri 22-Jul-16 19:46:32

Rotary make some nice two tone watches although I am clearly common as I wear mine all the time but it has diamonds on it hmm

JohnCheese Fri 22-Jul-16 19:55:59

Thanks billy. V pretty dress.

Gasp at crass everyday diamond watch wearing Pisci. grin

cheeseandmarmite15 Fri 22-Jul-16 20:53:47

Dress is by Vila. Only £45

JohnCheese Fri 22-Jul-16 21:54:46

Thanks cheeseandmarmite, but I was wondering about the white dress.

Heatherjayne1972 Fri 22-Jul-16 21:57:22

That ring cost £200,000!

bakeoffcake Fri 22-Jul-16 22:05:15

I don't think the ring did cost £200000. It's what the DM say it's worth, so it's probably about 50000. A bargain grin

cheeseandmarmite15 Fri 22-Jul-16 22:16:02

The lk Bennet karo dress?

I was going to buy it but I don't like the viscose lining.

Is that the dress you mean?

JohnCheese Fri 22-Jul-16 23:22:41

No, not the Karo dress. The white one. Broiderie or laser cut white one.
