How did you come up with the brand name – Christine Granville?
The brand name springs from the nickname of Krystyna Skarbek – a Polish agent of British Intelligence. The founder of Christine Granville watches is a mentor and for years has been motivating and supporting women in business. That’s why Krystyna Skarbek – a strong, brave woman who changed the course of history became an inspiration to create the brand of watches.
What organization/foundation is the money from the sales of the watches donated to?
The brand supports a Polish foundation Sieć Przedsiębiorczych Kobiet (The Network of Entrepreneurial Women) which has been supporting and educating women for 7 years, reminding them of how much business potential they have, how causative and self-reliant they can be. The foundation’s mission is to promote the idea of entrepreneurship among women, to support and promote the development of companies run by women. The idea of the foundation perfectly fits into the goal of the Christine Granville brand – to support the entrepreneurial spirit among women by developing a women’s community, mentoring or initiating business programs.
Are there also watches for men?
The offer of Christine Granville will be enlarged by other leather products, but all watches are made and dedicated to women because of the brand’s history and our mission, that is to support women. That’s why the brand donates a percent of the sale of each watch to the Foundation „Sieć Przedsiębiorczych Kobiet” (The Network of Entrepreneurial Women).
