British Royal Family Watches - When it comes to timekeeping, the British royals know how to do it in style. That is most likely unsurprising because we are talking about the Royal Family that Forbes reported as holding nearly $28 billion in real estate assets as of 2021, which cannot be sold. That includes The $19.5 billion Crown Estate and $4.9 billion Buckingham Palace.


Given that they have an entourage who oversees every minute of their day, we may reasonably assume that they wear watches as statement fashion pieces rather than useful components. And, with many of their watches being classics, the entire royal family may be the world's most famous horologists (please click here to see watches of world leaders part 1 and here for part 2.


Here’s a look at some of the most favored timepieces among the British Royals.

Thursday, 8 September 2022 marked a sad day for the British Royal Family, as Queen Elizabeth II, the country's longest-reigning queen, died at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle, her home in Scotland.


Her Majesty's personal assets from her 70 years on the throne total over $500 million, which Prince Charles will inherit when he is crowned king.

The late 96 year-young Queen has been collecting luxury watches, from Patek Philippe, and Audemars Piguet to Omega. In the picture, she was seen wearing an extremely rare 20mm yellow gold Patek Philippe Ladies Calatrava with a quartz movement on fascinating beads of rice bracelet. The price is unknown. I’m wondering how much it costs.

The late Queen’s other Patek Philippe watch is the super rare and beautiful white gold Patek Philippe 4975/1G encrusted with brilliant-cut diamonds on an elegant pearl bracelet. This model is unquestionably a work of genuine craftsmanship.
