It’s hard to believe that Friends ended back in 2004; most of us have dreamt of a reunion ever since. Thanks to reruns, the US sitcom has remained on a never-ending loop while we worked from home, spent weekends alone and attempted various internet trends that went viral.
Thankfully our wait is over, with The One Where They Get Back Together now streaming on HBO Max. If, like me, you spent your younger years binge-watching the lives of Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Monica (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), Joey (Matt LeBlanc), Chandler (Matthew Perry) and Ross (David Schwimmer), you can practically taste the coffee from Central Perk and, while blindfolded, locate the wall that hasn’t been spackled.
In the eighth season of Friends, Monica Geller openly fantasised about moving to France where she would live in a house of cheese. So it seems fitting that this high-strung perfectionist and damn good cook would have the perfect fake Pasha de Cartier––a French classic––strapped to her wrist.
Monica frequently wore a pair of well-fitted jeans with a buttoned-up shirt that, for Christmas parties, she’d style with excruciatingly painful leather boots. The more eagle-eyed among us will have also noticed that the younger sister of Ross wore several luxury copy wristwatches over the US sitcom’s 10-year stint.
A quick scan of the show’s seasons suggests Monica preferred a round case in steel or white gold, making the steel bracelet replica Pasha de Cartier a perfect choice.
