Swiss watchmaker Charriol has chosen actress Kimberley Anne Voltemas as its new ambassador in Thailand.
Pauramin Srichawla, chief executive at Everest World, the brand’s distributor in Thailand, introduced the Thai actress of German descent as she presented the latest collection, which fuses modern innovation with ancient Celtic art.
The event at Central World drew a crowd of celebrities. Kimberley told them she was honoured to join “the Charriol family”.
“I’ve known Charriol for a long time and now that I am representing the brand, I feel it fits my character.
“As an actress, I can’t have just one style – I have to wear many different styles all the time. Charriol watches truly suit me. They go well with any outfit and any occasion. They tell the time, of course, but they’re also beautiful pieces of jewellery. This is an item worth having for any woman.”
French entrepreneur Philippe Charriol founded the firm – which also deals in jewellery, fragrances, eyewear and leather goods – in 1983. It remains an independent, family-run enterprise.
Charriol has 285 boutiques and 3,800 other points of sale around the world.
The Celtic Collection, crafted from gold and stainless steel cables, pays homage to the art of the ancient European civilisation. The colour palette ranges from bold and vibrant shades to soft pastels.
The St Tropez line is refined and luxurious, rendered unique by the pretty bracelet attached to the strap. It’s one of the brand’s most versatile models, continually updated with new interpretations that recall the glamour of its namesake French town.
This season there are the St Tropez Glam, combining artistic flair with ice-cool sparkle, the St Tropez Colour with a new silhouette, and the fun and fabulous St Tropez Bubbles with a playful circular pattern on the dial, evoking the bubbles in sparkling wine.
The Forever line is stylish and colourful and includes jewellery, handbags and now a chic dress-up watch. Unveiled at Basel World 2016, the bracelet-watch has the slim cables and an Eastern-inspired latticed design.
Charriol has a boutique at Siam Paragon in Bangkok.
