Charriol Gran Celtica™ SuperSportS Mechanical Watch

Charriol Gran Celtica™ SuperSportS  Mechanical Watch
This year, the Gran Celtica™ SuperSportS automatic chronograph comes in a distinctly dressier version. The originally two-tone domed bezel is now made of polished and sunray satin-finish steel, as is the new bracelet replacing its black rubber strap with its cable motifs. The motorsports inspiration remains clearly visible, backed by the longstanding racetrack experience acquired by skilled driver Philippe Charriol.

Charriol Gran Celtica™ SuperSportS  Mechanical Watch


This racing spirit is expressed through original elements such as the guilloché sunray-brushed silver-toned dial, colourful hour-markers, the turbine-wheel small seconds resembling a racing-car wheel, as well as the black rubber-clad crown. This generously sized 46 mm-diameter chronograph is powered by the ETA Valjoux 775 mechanical movement equipped with a personalised oscilating weight.
