The same Cartier Baignoire Folle 18-Carat White Gold Diamond Ladies Watch comes in a case made of rhodiumised white gold set with brilliant-cut diamonds while the side of the case is an octagonal crown set with a diamond is just $129. The watch case is 44mm high, 35mm wide and 10mm thick and is covered by glare-proof sapphire crystal glass.
Our investigations on search engines revealed that there are exactly same watches of same make but with different prices.
What we however cannot confirm is whether Buhari’s wife wore the original of the watch or one of its replica which may be going for far less the price earlier reported.
Here is the price of the watch we found on KO-Watches, one of the companies that replicates the Cartier Baignoire Folle 18-Carat White Gold Diamond watch.
