    Hi Everyone! :wavey:

    I've been contemplating adding a classic watch to my collection--it's been on my wishlist for quite some time now. I was initially looking at the Cartier Tank Francaise last year and even tried on a few samples for size.

    However, when I saw HRH the Duchess of Cambridge's Cartier watch from Prince William, I immediately fell in love with the the Ballon Bleu line instead! :love:

    Can't tell you how many times I looked through DS's luxury watch thread for inspiration, too! :read:

    After finally trying on several of the BB sizes in the Cartier store, I found the 33mm version was the best size for my wrist (thanks, DS! ;)) ).

    I love the clean lines of the watch along with the subtle blue accents! DH was gracious enough to upgrade to the diamond studded version, too! :sun: A PS'er can never have too much bling, right?! :naughty:

    It will be a definite staple piece for me along with all of my other bling! I must say my local Cartier service was impeccable, too! :))

    So glad to be finally joining the Cartier watch club! Yay! :appl:

    Now onto pics...

    Love how the BB and the MRB mirror each other in terms of shape...

    I would normally not stack my bangle with this watch--just wanted to post it for size reference only...
