The Marie-Olga is a jewellery watch creation which takes inspiration from one of the passions of its eponymous muse, Marie-Olga Charriol, an accomplished horsewoman. With her love of riding and, in particular, her involvement in competitions with the Ladies Charriol Polo Cup, Marie-Olga and her late husband, founder Philippe Charriol, wanted to reflect the body language of the rider on her mount in the design of the watch. The volutes of the masterful numbers on the dial are like thoroughbreds in their mother-of-pearl pens. A single stirrup extends the case with its asymmetrical fastening, underlining the equestrian metaphor and magnifying the design and personality of the Marie-Olga watch case.
The watch is immediately recognisable thanks to the stainless steel cable bracelet, the true DNA of the brand. In contrast to Charriol’s other collections, the bracelet is very slim and the steel cables are delicately separated, evoking the plaited mane of a competition horse. The Marie-Olga watch comes in two colours: PVD rose gold or yellow gold and set with or without 148 diamonds. The oval-shaped case and the mother-of-pearl dial give the timepiece a particularly feminine allure. The bezel, set with multiple diamonds, illuminates this jewellery watch that will appeal to both sophisticated and sporty women.
