Charriol watches offer a distinctive blend of French ingenuity and premium Swiss-made craftsmanship. The brand was founded in 1983 by French entrepreneur Philippe Charriol, who sought out to create precision Swiss-made timepieces assembled in Geneva, incorporating both modern and ancient artistic designs.
Charriol wanted his wristwatches to do more than just tell time. He wanted each timepiece to be a fine piece of jewelry as well. This was conveyed in one of the brand’s early collections, the Celtic Hearts watch series, which featured a twisted cable design inspired by early Iron-Age Celtic metal work.
Crafted from stainless steel and titanium the twisted cable has been used by Charriol as an accent on watch bezels, cases and bracelets and even as stylish watch straps in many of his prestigious timepiece collections. The design is globally trademarked and the hallmark of the Charriol brand.
With the international success of his watch collections, Charriol added fine jewelry, writing instruments and leather good accessories to the assortment. The signature twisted cable design is featured on many of the items in the various Charriol collections.
You’ll find many of today’s most sought-after Charriol watches for men and women at luxury retailer The Watchery, including popular styles from the Alexandre, Ael, Celtica, Colvmbvs and St. Tropez collections.
The Charriol Celtica men’s chronograph captures the spirit and legacy of the highly regarded brand. Outstanding timepiece has a dark gray ion-plated stainless steel case, which is an impressive 44mm in diameter and 14mm thick. The case is presented on the signature twisted cable design strap in durable, hard-wearing rubber.
The stationary bezel encircles the chronograph dial with three subdials, luminous hands and hour markers. Features include a date outer dial, day and month window, 1/10th of a second, small-second and 30-minute registers.
