Everything associated with the recent royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry was worth a look. Appreciation poured in from all walks of life for everything that Meghan and Harry donned. From Meghan’s Givenchy wedding gown, her sparkly Queen Mary diamond bandeau (tiara), to Harry’s traditional military uniform, everything has suddenly become the talk of the town and the craze just refuses to die down even a week after the wedding.

You may be still reeling in the charm of the way Duke of Sussex lifted Duchess of Sussex’s veil and the romantic look he gave her. But there was lot more to the wedding that is worth your time. For instance, everyone noticed Prince of Wales, Charles’s jewelry when he walked Maghan down the aisle. His Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronograph Watch caught everyone’s fancy so did his golden ring. The 18ct gold watch that he flaunted during the wedding is one of Parmigiani’s iconic models. The watch features Parmigiani 190 automatic COSC certified movement.

If the sources are to be believed, he had been loyal to the timepiece brand since 2015.  He is known to have been wearing this 18 karat yellow gold Parmigiani Fleurier Toric Chronograph for a long time. The watch in itself is so regal and since it appeared on the wrist of Charles during the most watched wedding of the year, the watch has gained all the more magnificence. The 39 mm in diameter watch was introduced in 2005.

Many believed that it was an understatement on the Prince’s behalf to sport the timepiece for such a grand event at Windsor of Castle. However, he has been a true sport and the rare sight of spotting an organic watch, these days, was a treat to the eyes. This is not the first time ever that a watch spotted on the wrist of a royal is garnering reviews and opinions. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton frequently sports her Cartier Ballon Bleu and was seen with one at Wimbledon, even Harry is loyal to his Rolex Explorer II but the occasion was not suitable for his favourite watch so he may have decided to give it a skip. Perhaps, he wanted an undivided attention to be showered on Meghan.

Talking about the endorsers of Parmigiani Fleurier, the brand had some time ago partnered with Chef Izu Ani with the Michelin-star chef being its brand ambassador for a while.
