Pearl Evening Watch

The Pearl Evening Watch
The Queen always wears a watch on her left wrist, including for evening and formal engagements. This is her pearl version, worn usually when she uses her pearl and diamond jewelry. Made by Patek Philippe, it is a pearl bracelet of 5 strands with a diamond clasp and a central watch face in a diamond frame. Surrounding the watch face on either side are shorter pearl strands that hang down when the watch is in use.

Thank you to Windsorfan on the Royal Jewels of the World Message Board for posting about a Patek Philippe exhibit which included this watch, and to Jelena for adding the information here.
