Graduation is one of the most pivotal moments for anyone. It marks the culmination of your hard work and celebrates your readiness to be catapulted into the real world. But not all women are privileged enough to wear a toga or march up a stage to get their diplomas.
However, with Swiss brand Charriol's initiative through its "Watch Me Graduate" campaign, women are given the opportunity to finish their education. In an official statement, the brand boasts of the success of the said campaign, "The funding has given them hope and renewed their spirit to continue their journey to become successful women of their time."
In the Philippines, Charriol has partnered with The Foundation for Professional Training, Inc. (FPTI), a non-profit oragnization that promotes "lifelong development for women by conducting formal education and vocational programs." Through the partnership, Charriol has watched their scholars graduate and launch a career for themselves.

Join the initiative by purchasing any of the brand's Art Deco St. Tropez timepieces to help fund the scholars. Charriol, donates P1000 for each timepiece sold in all of the store's branches nationwide. The initiative started last March 16 and will continue on until May 31.
The watches feature a 25mm face with a finely woven twisted cable strap and chain bracelet that are a nod to the 1920s art deco pattern. The collection is available in all their stores across the country including Greenbelt 5, Newport Mall, Podium, Bonifacio High Street Central, Gateway Mall, Power Plant Mall, and Trinoma.
