Bejewelled timekeepers for the lover of fine, fabulous things.
First unveiled in 2020, the Vacheron Constantin Égérie collection is as multifaceted as the women they adorn.
Born from the conjunction of Haute Horologie and Haute Couture, Égérie timepieces are embodiments of elegance and refinement, whose aesthetic signature is an asymmetrical display comprising two intertwined circles with a complication (date or moon-phase, depending on model) taking its haloed place between 1 and 2 o’clock, aligned with the gem-set crown and Vacheron Constantin logo.
This year, in line with the Swiss Maison’s theme of “Classic with a Twist”, the new additions to this exceptionally elegant family are two Égérie self-winding diamond-pavé models.
Dressed in a dazzle of 912 diamonds, each spectacular timepiece captures hearts as surely as it catches light on every millimetre of its 35mm-diameter case – dial, bezel, flanks, lugs and interlugs – and even the pin buckles mounted on the strap. Two precious metal alternatives are available: 18K white gold or 18K 5N rose gold.
Paved with 574 round-cut diamonds on the dial, 303 round-cut diamonds on the bezel, flanks, lugs and interlugs, 17 round-cut diamonds on the pin buckle of each of the 2 accompanying straps, and 1 rose-cut diamond on the crown, the Égérie self-winding diamond-pavé is a real 4.10 carat stunner.
Housed within the gold case and visible through the sapphire crystal case-back is the self-winding Manufacture calibre 1088 with a handcrafted Côtes de Genève motif and Maltese-cross-inspired oscillating weight. With a power reserve of 40 hours, this day-to-night companion has style and substance in equal measure.
Offering versatility of wear in all the moments that matter, the Vacheron Constantin Égérie self-winding diamond-pavé watch is accompanied by two interchangeable straps in alligator leather and satin – both in an understatedly chic night blue shade.
