The Duke of Sussex has a collection of unconventionally fine watches, many of which he wore while on armed missions

We take a closer look at the watches that Prince Harry has been seen wearing—and what makes them so special.

Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer II 216570

Prince Harry wore a Rolex Explorer II with a stainless-steel bracelet at a visit to Royal Air Force in Honington in the UK, where he met his fellow pilots and their families, in 2012.

The watch case measures 42mm and encloses the Rolex calibre 3187—an automatic movement with 50 hours of power reserve. It has a white analogue dial with a 24-hour orange hand. The date is displayed at 3 o’clock and the watch is water resistant down to 100m.

Breitling Aerospace Avantage E79362

The Prince sported the Breitling Aerospace Avantage at the Invictus Games in London in 2014. The watch was presented to him as a member of the British Armed Forces, after he completed a mission serving on the front lines for the Royal Air Force.

There are different versions of the watch, but the one Prince Harry owns has a blue dial with a digital display and a titanium bracelet. The timepiece is powered by a quartz movement and the 42mm case with a rotating bezel is made of titanium. It has a unidirectional rotating bezel that helps to mark the start time of an event—a function that could come in handy for pilots on a mission.

Casio G-Shock

The Prince was seen wearing the digital watch on numerous occasions. It is run by a battery and is water resistant down to 200m. It has a black resin strap and, as the name suggests, is shock resistant.
