At the young age of 25, Prince Harry is undoubtedly one of the world’s most eligible bachelors. He’s cute, he’s got class, he’s a bit of a bad boy and now, he’s got money and lots of it. Upon turning 25 years old on September 15, Prince Harry gained access to part of his late mother’s, Princess Diana’s, inheritance.
Harry and his brother Prince William were left equal shares from Princess Diana’s estate following her death in a 1997 car crash in Paris. At that time, the shares were estimated to be about $10.6 million each, which has now been estimated to be about $46 million each.
However, even with all this money and fame and constant media attention, Harry is as normal as they come. He dates, he makes mistakes, he voluntarily joined the British Army where he has become a lieutenant, and he wears a watch that any “ol bloke” could afford: the G Shock by Casio.
The G Shock was designed to be an outdoor sports watch. It’s a tough watch, one that is shock resistant and can sustain the bumps and bruises of physical contact. All G-Shock watches have some kind of stopwatch feature, countdown timer, light and water resistance. As they’ve gained a somewhat celeb following, there are now some fancier styles.
Other fans of the G Shock include musicians / producers Usher, Kayne West (who also likes Rolex watches), Pharrell Williams and football fav Brett Favre.
The G Shock has done well in Hollywood flicks as well, appearing on the wrist of Brad Pitt in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” and on Steve Carell in the “The 40 Year Old Virgin”.
Speaking of inheritance; Harry’s ability and desire to be “normal” very much comes from his mother. What people loved about Princess Diana was her ability to connect to people, which is why she was known as the “People’s Princess.” Her classic sense of style was much admired, and when it came to watches, she didn’t disappoint; she wore a Cartier Tank yellow gold watch with full bracelet, among other luxury watches that could only be fit for a Princess.
