French watchmaker Charriol celebrates its Celtic Legacy


The original Celtic Legacy was an oddly-named but surprisingly popular timepiece that landed on wrists decades ago. Featuring a crown at four o’clock and a uniquely-positioned seconds dial at seven o’clock, the watch was a fashion icon.

The new model, running quartz ETA movements, clocks in at about $2,000 in steel and about $12,000 in solid gold.

From the release:

The entire Maison and Creative Director – and newly appointed Chairwoman Coralie Charriol, worked in the search for a line that honored its founder, her father?s life?s work.

??As we looked ahead to 2020, a new decade and new chapter, we knew we wanted to find a really special way to honor Dad. We spent time combing through the archives, understanding the enormous heritage that he built. Nothing seemed to capture his spirit quite like the original: The Celtic Collection. We are so proud to have remade it, just like I?ll be proud to wear it and share it with the world. It?s the most fitting way to honor his life and to keep his memory at hand,” she said.

It’s a cool piece with an interesting history and just right for the non-watch lover in your life who deserves a little extra on their wrist.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
