Charlie Paris has been an established watchmaker and retailer in France since 2014, but is making a rare foray across the Channel to present its watches at WATCHPRO Market in London next month.
The business has a boutique and workshop in Paris’s leafy and luxurious 6th arrondissement, from where it retails a range of men’s and ladies watches.
Charlie Paris‘s logo, a flying stork, conjures thoughts of newborns on the way, and visitors to WATCHPRO Market will have the chance to try-on and buy the very latest arrivals from the brand.
Charlie Paris makes both automatics and quartz-based watches.
In the UK, where demand slants heavily towards the mechanical, the brand’s most popular collection is likely to be the Initial, which uses Miyota automatic movements in clean and classic three-handers with date and open heart models with apertures exposing the beating balance wheel of the movement.
Top of the Initial line is a pair of watches in blue or white with power reserves on the dial.
A particularly interesting watch for the Shoreditch set visiting WATCHPRO Market is a Charlie Paris Initial limited edition with dial art by Erró (pictured top) an artist and painter who is best known for his painted pop art collages of images from comic books and advertisements.
Prices range from €395 to €595 for the three-handers and power reserve models while the limited edition Erró watch sells for €750.
“At Charlie Paris, we put all our enthusiasm and skills into creating a watch brand with a design that is both timeless and unique, assembled in France with care and with excellent value for money. Whether with an automatic or quartz movement, we seek to offer watches for men and women that can accompany you for many years thanks to quality components and special attention to detail,” the company says.
