Charriol is known for its signature Celtic cable, a concept which has been lovingly embraced by so many, and can now be appreciated through a universe of other luxury products that include accessories, small leather foods, eye-wear and fashion.
Charriol’s new Saint-Tropez watch with it’s cable motif rubber strap in white and has a sunburst motif on the mother-of-pearl dial base finish.
Their new collection, Saint-Tropez, was actually launched 30 years ago, according to the family patriarch himself, Philippe. But for the rebirth of the collection the luxury brand decided to have the watches and jewelleries be clad with diamond set in mother-of-pearl, a first in the Charriol range. Dubbed as an “It” watch, the Saint-Tropez Infinite Summer jewellery watch has a cable bracelet and adjustable chain that shines beneath an unusual sapphire crystal.
It’s also available in black, the watch also features small seconds sub-dial.
The French company is already labelled as a veteran Swiss watch manufacturer, Charriol, is renewing its collection centered on the Celtic cable: the iconic motif that first sparked its success. The Saint-Tropez collection also features innovative cable motif rubber straps in black or white which afford a casual touch and is destined to appeal to younger wearers. Remember when our grandparents passes down to our parents some watches and jewelries? That is the main goal of Charriol! To be known from one generation to another generation of younger Charriol wearers.
In line with the brand’s global initiatives for corporate social responsibility, Charriol and Stores Specialists, Inc. chose The Cancer Resource and Wellness (CAREWELL) Community Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides support, education, and hope to persons with cancer and their loved ones, as beneficiary of their fund-raising program. That’s why with every Charriol watch sold during the period of October 13 to November 12, 2012 across all 15 Charriol stores in the Philippines, a thousand peso will be donated to The CAREWELL Community.
