Michel Herbelin Antarès and Brigitte Macron: The Constant Wrist Companion of a French Style Icon

Brigitte Macron knows how to dress well. Since becoming the French First Lady in 2017, her outfit choices have delighted fashionistas not to mention older women, everywhere. Her polished look revolves around classic tailoring, neutrals and colour blocking. Furthermore, she often shows off her slim legs in skinny jeans, cigarette pants or a shift dress and stilettos. Also, she opts for belts to accentuate her tiny waist. Whether smart or casual, Brigitte nails it every time. For clothing and handbags, Louis Vuitton is her label of choice. However, when it comes to her wrist, her Michel Herbelin Antarès Watch is her constant companion and favourite accessory.

As a French-owned family company, it is not surprising that Brigitte Macron is keen to champion a French-Made watch brand. Based in the Haut-Doubs region since 1947, Michel Herbelin is famous for its affordable luxury timepieces. However, her connection to her Herbelin watch runs deeper than that. Her original Antarès was a self-purchase from a Parisian boutique near the Place de l’Etoile. Unfortunately, as reported by Paris Match, the watch was lost and in a romatic gesture, was replaced by President Macron.

Antarès is the perfect accessory for Mrs Macron. Thanks to a unique “click and lock system” the straps are fully interchangeable. Therefore, it is possible to change your look on a daily basis and coordinate your watch with every outfit. For a woman who is constantly in the public eye, Antarès guarantees impeccable fashion-forward style without the need for multiple timepieces.
