ST-TROPEZ™ is the most glamorous and feminine collection made by luxury Swiss watchmaker and jeweller, CHARRIOL. The ST-TROPEZ™ range is refined, luxurious and made totally unique by the pretty signature bracelet that is attached to the strap. It is also one of the Maison’s most versatile models, continually updated with fabulous new interpretations that recall the glamour of its namesake French town.
Now, for 2017, CHARRIOL presents two brand-new models set with gemstones that take ST-TROPEZ™ glamour to new heights – an on-trend green tsavorite variant and an opulent piece set with white sapphires.
The GreenLight variant is generously set with gorgeous green tsavorite stones on the bezel and lugs, with matching tsavorite counters on the dial. In 35mm size, the stones make a luxurious statement and this sophisticated green is offset by the cool silvery tones of the stainless steel twisted cable strap that makes up CHARRIOL’s signature motif.
Tsavorite is a beautiful natural gemstone from the garnet family of stones. A lighter shade than emerald, tsavorite is appreciated for its light-reflecting qualities, which give it extra sparkle, as seen here on this luxurious piece.
The GreenLight model is also in step with this year’s favourite hue, as ‘greenery’ has been hailed by Pantone as the 2017 color of the year. Green symbolises fresh new beginnings, hope and growth. Tsavorite’s sophisticated shade brings a fresh new twist to evening wear and makes a change from the usual ‘occasion colors’ of black or white.
CHARRIOL clips adorn the bracelet strap, engraved with the CHARRIOL insignia. The dial is truly refined, in shimmering white mother of pearl, with green tsavorite stones to mark the hours. The CHARRIOL logo is seen at 12 o’clock and a discreet date display at 6 o’clock.
The white sapphire version exudes an exquisitely classic mood. A bezel set with 48 baguette-cut white sapphires (3.06 carats) offers a vintage feel harks at the glamour of days gone by. The sparkling stones encircle a shimmering white mother of pearl dial, set with 12 white sapphire counters and a date counter. In contrast, the cool steel cable brings the timepiece up-to-date, adding a contemporary edge perfect for the modern woman.
The hallmark of each ST-TROPEZ™ watch strap is its open-ended bangle design. Each watch strap, embellished with a pair of décors clips, comes attached with a unique ST-TROPEZ™ chain bracelet, finished with a security chain and clasp. All CHARRIOL cables are produced in Switzerland, with an exclusive stainless steel and titanium alloy, in the La Chaux-de-Fonds workshops. They are treated with hypoallergenic finish under a strict production process, also used in the medical field, and meet the ASTM International A967-01 standards.
