Charriol celebrates 30 years of luxury with launch of new timepiece collection and US distributor


New York, NY (October 17, 2013) – On Wednesday, Oct. 16th, Coralie Charriol hosted more than 30 VIP guests including True Blood’s Jamie Gray Hyder, Jennifer Creel, Marisa Brown, Nicole Hanley Mellon and fashion and lifestyle editors from the top national, fashion and lifestyle magazines for a private luncheon at the Nomad Hotel. In celebration of Charriol’s 30th Anniversary, the brand unveiled its iconic new collections which exude a fresh, contemporary and youthful energy.


After two years of extensive product and brand development, Charriol announced a clutch of product releases from the pure lines of the young, modern and novel ‘AEL’ timepieces (meaning ‘angel’ in Celtic), to new variants within the COLVMBVS™ range, all of which demonstrate high levels of technology and artistic flair. The popular CELTICA™ range also welcomes new additions: the GRAN CELTICA ™ Automatic Chronograph, which recalls Charriol’s legacy of motorsports and the CELTIC ® XL Automatic, defined by its strong, masculine appeal and bold, 43mm size.

The roaring success of Charriol’s ST-TROPEZ™ timepiece for women, with its charming chain-link bracelet, is celebrated in four variants, which reflect the relaxed lifestyle of the French Riviera: “Seashells”, “Sun”, “Flowers” and “Love”.  For 2013, the brand’s flagship model will be the ST-TROPEZ ™ Plum, a women’s timepiece rendered in the brand’s signature purple pantone. The elegant watch is worked in stainless steel contrasted with a rich purple, mother-of-pearl bezel and dial, and embellished with Charriol insignia clips.

In conjunction with the 30th anniversary, Geneva’s Charriol has partnered with Kronos America, LLC, for exclusive distribution of the brand’s timepieces in the United States and Canada. Despite concerns of a turbulent global financial climate and crowded luxury market, Charriol timepieces continue to stand strong in their sector, representing 70 percent of the company’s luxury portfolio.
