Press Release – Geneva, March 16th 2016 — It was thirty years ago that Charriol undertook the creation of a timepiece made just for women, an elegant watch of timeless design that a woman could own from her youth, and that would carry her through the many stages of her life. These special timepieces are encapsulated in the St. Tropez 35 Collection.
What better way to celebrate one of the most pivotal times in a young woman’s life — graduation — than with a treasured timepiece from the St. Tropez 35 Collection. A watch is a special gift, traditionally given to young women as they make the transition from college to the world before them. As much as it is a lovely piece of jewelry, a watch also signifies this rite of passage and all the headiness it entails. The sophisticated, mature design that Charriol embodies couldn’t be a better fit for a young woman venturing out into the world. No other timepiece could represent that new era, one where getting down to business is both a professional and personal journey.
As a company, Charriol has historically supported education, hard work and determination, and that’s why we’ve partnered with Graduate Women International, the nonprofit organization whose goal it is to empower women and girls through lifelong education. GWI advocates for the advancement of the status of women and girls, and enables them to apply their knowledge and skills in all forms of public and private life. Investment in education, particularly girls’ education, has a return of 10-15 dollars for every dollar invested, in addition to improving the lives of families and communities. Charriol recognizes the impact this has, and has pledged to donate five percent of the sales of each watch from the St. Tropez 35 Collection toward the work of GWI.
Each watch from the St. Tropez 35 Collection can also be engraved with the name and year of the student. Its special packaging will mark a remembrance for years to come.
In an acknowledgement of the hard work students put in, Charriol is giving an exclusive gift to graduates who present their degree — from either college or graduate school — at certain Charriol boutiques. Visit the location nearest you for further details on our promotion.
This is the watch, and the most special gift a graduate can receive at one of the most special times. Embrace your future and watch your life begin!
