At the crossroads between Haute Horlogerie and Haute Couture, the Égérie collection by Vacheron Constantin reveals a new facet of its personality with two new Égérie self-winding diamond-pavé models.
The Égérie self-winding diamond-pavé watch catches and reflects light from all angles. A stunning setting of 303 diamonds accentuating the slender bezel, flanks, lugs and even inter-lugs of its 35mm-diameter case in 18K white gold or 18K 5N pink gold. The gold dial sparkles with the same brilliance.
Adorned with 574 diamonds, it transforms the passing of time into a truly dazzling sight. The show begins with the offset date appearing in a diagonal formed by the Vacheron Constantin logo and the crown positioned between 1 and 2 o’clock, which is topped with a rose-cut diamond adding a daring touch of coquetry. This skilful composition of curves and interlaced circles is punctuated by 18K gold Arabic numerals scalloped like fine lace and swept over by slim gold hands.
A clever interchangeable strap enables the wearer to change the look of the watch as she wishes: satin or satin-effect alligator leather, night blue coloured for the white gold version; candied chestnut coloured for the pink gold model. Once chosen, the strap is simply and easily clipped to the case in a smooth tool-free move. The gold pin buckles mounted on each strap, set with 17 diamonds, sets the perfect finishing touch.
The Égérie self-winding diamond-pavé watch is equipped with calibre 1088, a self-winding Manufacture movement with a 40-hour power reserve. The sapphire crystal on the caseback affords an admirable view of the Haute Horlogerie finishes: a hand-crafted Côtes de Genève motif and an opened 22K gold oscillating weight inspired by the shape of the Maltese cross.
