Day Watches

A watch is as much a staple of the Queen's daily wardrobe as her wedding and engagement rings, her pearls, and her brooches. She has several watches to select from; those spotted at day events covered by this blog will be listed here, though this list will certainly not be comprehensive.

Gold Watch
This gold watch is frequently spotted for events during the day, and was gift from Canada during her 1951 tour. It is her current go-to watch for most occasions.

Since this is the watch most often spotted on the Queen, events won't be listed individually here. They are tagged; you may click here to see them.

Black Strap Watch
For a less formal option, the Queen has this watch with a black strap. She also has at least one other version with a round face, and it can be difficult to tell the difference. (And it would be surprising if there weren't more variations in her collection too.)
