CHARRIOL ST-TROPEZ™ MANSART

CHARRIOL’s ST-TROPEZ™ collection is a glamorous watch collection for women. The range is inspired by everything chic and French, as epitomised by its eternally appealing namesake Riviera town. Femininity and style are the bywords of this range, constantly updated. Now, CHARRIOL releases a brand-new variant, inspired by another eternally chic city, Paris.

The ST-TROPEZ™ Mansart takes its name from Jules Hardouin-Mansart, one of the most influential European architects of the 17th century. His classical style is behind many of Paris’ famous buildings and squares, including the Place Vendôme. Designed in an octagonal shape, Place Vendôme is synonymous with a formal architectural beauty that has inspired artists, couturiers and movie-makers over the centuries. Still today, the elegance of this famous square lives on, inspiring the world’s most luxurious brands, hotels and couture houses to make their home on Place Vendôme.

Taking cue from the elegance of this square, CHARRIOL has re-worked the ST-TROPEZ™ watch in homage to Mansart’s creations. ST-TROPEZ™’s usual circular case is replaced by a petite rectangular version (25mmx30mm) with angled edges, to form an octagonal shape.

Three styles become ever more precious: a warm yellow-gold version, a rose-gold variant with diamonds at each corner of the bezel, or steel versions set with 61 diamonds.

Dials come in two styles and reflect the elegance of the famous Parisian square: they shimmer with a white mother of pearl dial set with diamond counters and an opaline seconds counter, or come with an engraved white mother of pearl and seconds hand at 6 o’clock.

The watch is fitted with the signature twisted steel cable strap, and pretty chain bracelet.

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.
