Welcome to The Good Buy, our series where friends of Harper’s Bazaar tell us about the one purchase that was really worth it.
“I’m a watch fanatic and have a number of classic timepieces in my collection. I’ve always bought bigger, more masculine styles, so my luxury Cartier Tank replica watches with gold case is different. It’s the smallest one I own and feels really ladylike. There’s a sense of pride that comes with supporting a brand that has become an expert in a single item. I bought the high quality fake watches at the end of last year and have worn it every day since. Maybe it was because of Covid and having to stay home, but I wanted something that was a bit more practical. My husband and I got our wedding rings from UK fake Cartier, so we have a relationship with a guy there. In typical 2020 fashion, the whole purchase was made over text.
At first I really wanted a black band, but the brown alligator band has a subtleness to it; you can wear it anywhere and have it blend in. All of the things that make it feel so elegant, like its gold case and blue cabochon crown, still feel appropriately casual for when I’m dropping off my toddler at school or going to the farmers’ market. I love pairing it with an ornate Simone Rocha blouse or an oversize sweater by the Row. It goes with everything, and the only time I take it off is when I’m doing the dishes. My daughter likes to wear the Swiss movement replica Cartier too. I have funny pictures of her eating pancakes with it on. It’s a timeless piece that I hope to pass along to her—there’s nothing she won’t love about it in 20 years.”
