Which timepiece will the Prince of Cambridge wear?
Tuesday - 23 July 2013
Britain and the world are abuzz with delight at the birth of a baby boy to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The child was born yesterday at St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington at 4.24pm, weighing 8lbs 6oz. News of the birth has made headlines across the globe, from America to Australia and Poland to Portugal.
"We could not be happier," Prince William said.
Buckingham Palace announced that the child's title would be the Prince of Cambridge, making him the first baby to take this title for over 190 years.
Meanwhile, Prince Charles said he and Camilla were "overjoyed" at becoming grandparents. "I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather," he added.
Along with the rest of the country, we at Jura Watches send our warmest congratulations to the royal couple.
It will be a good few years until a timepiece adorns the baby's wrist, but we can't help wondering which watch the child might choose.
If he takes after his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, then perhaps he will choose a Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece. The Queen wore a Jaeger-LeCoultre 101 for her coronation.
On the other hand, perhaps he'll be influenced by stories from his father, Prince William, nervously checking the time on his Omega Seamaster throughout Kate's time in labour. The Prince was given the Omega Seamaster - the only timepiece he wears - by his late mother, Princess Diana.
Following roguish advice from his uncle, Prince Harry, may lead the young Prince of Cambridge to opt for a Casio G-Shock. Prince Harry's day-to-day watch of choice is a G-Shock.
Then again, the Prince of Cambridge may be swayed in his choice of timepiece by learning that Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld sketched out a beautiful maternity dress for his mother.
Of course, it's very possible the young prince will choose none of the above and will instead branch out and establish his own style.
