Boldly contemporary and delightfully classic, the new variation of the Égérie self-winding model pairs its exquisite curves with an 18K 5N pink gold bracelet.
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.
Flowing seamlessly into a new 18K 5N pink gold bracelet, its case is a dainty 35 mm 18K 5N pink gold pebble rimmed with 58 diamonds. Its silvered opaline dial features a “pleats” pattern created using the traditional 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 open-worked oscillating weight – inspired by the shape of the Maltese Cross – equipping the Manufacture self-winding 1088 calibre.
