These new creations from Vacheron Constantin’s Égérie collection are just what you need to add to your ensemble of luxurious timepieces.
The Égérie collection by Maison Vacheron Constantin is entirely inspired by and dedicated to women. In keeping with the brand’s belief of meeting expectations by designing timepieces as technically impressive as they are aesthetically stunning, this capsule symbolises the coming together of haute couture and haute horlogerie.
Each of the meticulously crafted, high-end Égérie watches invites you to make every moment more precious than the one before. Further, each of the luxurious timepieces in this range is a testament to Vacheron Constantin’s rich history. Égérie reinterprets, with refinement, the aesthetic codes from the manufacturer’s iconic models, some of which date back to the 19th century. The exquisite background pattern in the dial is inspired by a tapestry technique made possible by a unique machine dating from 1904.
The two new additions to this exquisite collection are the Égérie Moon Phase, which, as the name suggests, displays moon phases in addition to indicating the time. It revisits the tradition of skilful watchmaking with a poetic touch, allowing you to follow the lunar cycle over a mother-of-pearl sea of clouds in a star-studded sky. The other is the Égérie Self-Winding, which indicates the date and time. Both come with three interchangeable taupe-coloured straps: in alligator leather, satin and quilted lambskin.
Their inner beauty is revealed through a transparent sapphire crystal caseback. The numbers seem to float over a delicate drape of pure silk. While the original versions feature English numbers, watch enthusiasts in the Middle East can order a customised option with Arabic numerals. Their dials feature an 18-carat 5N pink gold ring set with round-cut diamonds. Accentuating the bezel in both versions are 58 round-cut diamonds. The Égérie Moon Phase is adorned with a total of 94 diamonds and Égérie Self-Winding, 92. The crown, used to set the time, holds a moonstone. Two of a kind, these precious bejewelled beauties come with an approximately 40-hour power reserve and are water resistant.
