Craig Shelly Honors Hollywood’s Ace Actor, Colin Farrell With a Bespoke Watch — El Capitan Rose — On The Eve of the 91st Academy Awards With An Amalgamation of Style and Humanity

Colin Farrell attended the 91st Academy Awards with a philanthropist flair, and Craig Shelly, in collaboration with City Gala, sponsored and supported 100 underprivileged children with food and education for one year through its partnership the Akshaya Patra Foundation.

As Colin Farrell graced the red carpet on Sunday night, he ushers forth a film career that embraces and cultivates a maturity marked from roles from the HBO hit, True Detective and The Lobster.

Colin was gifted Craig Shelly’s finest and fully customized timepiece, El Capitan Rose. This watch features a Swiss chronograph movement with date, 30-minute register and 1/10 second counter, and a water-resistant body that dazzles. The watch is engraved with Colin’s name as a timeless reminder of his work throughout the years in the film industry.

2019 is a landmark year for Craig Shelly featuring the release of their brand new, limited edition, Hope Collection. Just ask Craig what the Hope Collection means to him:

“‘HOPE’ … such a Simple, Pure, yet a Powerful word! It has the power to change anything and anyone. It can transform adversities into possibilities. Giving the gift of HOPE to someone is elevating their spirits and giving them a chance to make a difference in their lives and that of others around them.”

Craig Shelly is known for their philanthropy and their unique mission, making time to give back. In addition to their partnership with City Gala, Craig Shelly supports Shriner’s Children’s Hospital and A Soldier’s Journey Home.

Together, Craig Shelly has honored Mario Lopez and other Hollywood celebrities, along with celebrities from the IIFA clan, with unique timepieces, actively expanding their philanthropic movement.

“Our goal is to raise awareness and support for some of the most disadvantaged children and provide them with the right to access education and healthy, nutritious meals.”

This timepiece breathes empowerment to children and beckons the opportunity of a thriving existence met with education and sustenance — a program everyone can get behind.

Purpose Before Profit

There exists a unique opportunity to think about other people; children, soldiers, communities in need and find a purpose before humanity puts blinders on and focuses only on profit.

The world needs unity through partnerships and common sense philanthropy, and that’s exactly what Craig Shelly has accomplished through the years and are expanding upon with the release of their Hope Collection. The Hope Collection consists of El Capitan, the watch gifted to Colin, Hope, Faith, Love, Cherish, & Empower. Learn more about our new collection!

All contained in a timeless package of Swiss-made elegance and performance.

The Craig Shelly Difference

The journey of Craig Shelly spans three decades filled with passion and enthusiasm to cultivate aesthetically stunning timepieces, crafted by the imagination and tenacity of two high school sweethearts. They set out to express the joy of love in a physical manifestation — a watch.

Not only is a timepiece a lovely way to celebrate and signify your love, but it serves as a reminder of all whirling and wondrous moments you’ve spent forging a love that endures.

And, in this enrapture, Craig Shelly gives you more than just time and love — they provide you with a chance to make a difference.

With every timepiece purchased, your investment goes towards feeding and educating one child for one year. Be the difference while making a difference — one child, one soldier, one person at a time. These Swiss-made timepieces function to “make time to give back.”
