The Vacheron Constantin ladies’ collection revealed at the beginning of last year has continued to flourish with a new variation of the Égérie self-winding model. Boldly contemporary and delightfully classic, it now pairs its exquisite curves with an 18K 5N pink gold bracelet.
Delightfully supple and as soft as a second skin, feeling like leather on skin, its links adorn the wrist with infinite elegance, making one almost forget it is even there. Draped entirely in gold, this watch presents a seductive composition, capturing the spirit of the times and perfectly suited to all outfits and every occasion, ranging from super-casual to ultra-formal.
Inspired by the world of haute couture and the aesthetic sophistication inherited from Vacheron Constantin’s heritage, the Égérie self-winding watch celebrates the collection’s unique style. Its case is a dainty 35mm 18K 5N pink gold pebble rimmed with 58 diamonds. Its silvered opaline dial features a “pleats” pattern created using the time-honoured tapestry technique.
Using a machine dating from 1904 and resembling a pantograph, it is finely engraved thanks to the expertly applied touch of the guillocheur, revealing a subtle play of textures and depth evoking a precious fabric. It is against this backdrop that time performs its fascinating choreography, punctuated by leaf-type hands sweeping across gracefully scripted numerals recalling finely scalloped lace embroidery. Setting a final distinctive touch, the beautifully rounded diamond-set date display is offset along a diagonal line running between Vacheron Constantin’s signature and the crown, perkily adorned with a moonstone. This asymmetry enhances the personality of this extremely chic watch with an audacious contemporary twist.
Through its sapphire caseback, the Égérie self-winding model reveals the hand-crafted Côtes de Genève fine watchmaking finishes and delicately openworked oscillating weight – inspired by the shape of the Maltese Cross – equipping the Manufacture self-winding 1088 calibre.
