In this digital day and age where smartphones have become the new pocket watch, old-fashioned timepieces (read: analog) are made even more personal and quite the rarefied accessory. Personal because it’s the one thing you wear on your wrist day in and day out—its style highlights your sensibilities. Passed down from a loved one? Even better. Something like... Charriol.
The now-iconic Charriol St-Tropez tickers—easily a Valentine’s Day gift guide staple—recently got an upgrade with the launch of the St-Tropez Style range. Much like the French Riviera town of southeastern France from which it takes its name, the collection is glamorous yet unashamedly romantic.
Accessorize your accessory!
And the best part? You could style it—your way. The Charriol St-Tropez Style Collection is customizable. It can be adorned with interchangeable decorative clips and bracelets to suit your mood or mark a special moment—just like the charm bracelets you grew up with. It has this overt femininity that’s not cloying but rather conveys a certain allure. I love how the chain mimics the piled-on accessories trend—only more sophisticated.
Everything’s adorable, we know. Now the only problem is choosing. Clips range from P2650 to P8950, while chains range from P6550 to P12,450.
Oh, and you no longer have to be constantly pulling out your phone from your pocket when someone asks the time. Now, they probably won’t just ask about the time.
Charriol is located at Greenbelt 4, Power Plant mall, Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Tower, Gateway Mall, SM Mall of Asia, TriNoma, Robinsons Magnolia, Robinsons Midtown, Newport Resorts World, The Podium, Rustan’s Ayala Cebu, Abreeza Davao and Limketkai Cagayan de Oro.
