It was 1983 when a young Philippe Charriol sought to bring his spirit of bon vivant to the world with a knack for artful living and an eye for technical mastery. It was the debut of the Celtic Collection, his first, and with this elegant timepiece a legacy was born. A twist of fate would lead him to the masterful beauty of intricate and ancient metal work, inspiration which he then imbued precious materials, luxurious codes and a modern spirit.
His legacy as a gentleman driver lives on through the “Philippe Charriol Award” Stéphane Ratel, creator and CEO of SRO Motorsports Group, introduced – to the 850 guests attending the ceremony at Bellagio Hotel on October 20th, the new Award dedicated to Philippe Charriol – the pilot that motorsport’s world has lost on February 27 2019 on the French racing track Le Castellet.
Charriol is rooted in the aura of Celtic Femininity: rebellious, refined, and sophisticated. Over 30 years later, this inspiration has manifested into a timeless modernity and personified in the contemporary, extraordinary Charriol Woman. Queens, druidesses, fairies and goddesses of then, are the protective mothers, passionate lovers, political advisers and formidable fighters of now.
In 2020, through Coralie Charriol Paul, this femininity endorses a new and plural dimension. A new Luxury is born. With the same red thread accompanying the brand since its beginnings: be visionary, keep in touch and care of the beauty of the essentials and the Humanity patrimony.
The secret links between equestrian and watchmaking arts are stamped with the same strong and timeless values: rigor, purity, transmission, passion. They both share the same song of gestures with the hand as a major actor, the eye as a conductor and the heart as a motor. They take time without counting it to achieve excellence, erase complexity to keep only the essential, the beauty, the pure gesture, the perfect moment.
Saint-Tropez… This legendary icon of the French Riviera is a muse that has inspired Charriol for 30 years. A star that is as glamorous as it is extravagant. But there is also a more secret, complex and intimate Saint-Tropez only known to a select few.
The new CALYPSO line reinvents the “Invitation au voyage” with a sensual, solar and colorful jewelry collection, which captures light and magnifies each gesture.
