Just in time for Christmas, Swiss watch manufacturer Vacheron Constantin has entered the world of „Haute Manufacture“ with the Égérie self-winding. Gold and diamonds are beautifully combined in this watch, gracing the female wrist with stunning elegance.
With its seductively precious allure, this newest Égérie model is an ideal companion for both daytime and evening wear.
Inspired by the world of haute couture and the aesthetic sophistication inherited from Vacheron Constantin’s heritage, the Égérie self-winding celebrates the collection’s unique style. The 35-mm-pink gold case is pebble rimmed with 58 diamonds. Its silvered opaline dial features a „pleats“ pattern created using the tapestry technique. The fine engraving creates a subtle play of textures and depth evoking a precious fabric. It is against this backdrop that time performs its never ending 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 wonderfully restrained crown, perkily adorned with a moonstone. This asymmetry enhances the personality of the Égérie self-winding, gives it a old contemporary twist – and plenty of character.
The Égérie is powered by the in-house calibre 1088. It operates at a frequency of 4 Hz and provides a power reserve of at least 40 hours. Vacheron Constantin has equipped this timepiece with a sapphire case back, revealing the fine watchmaking finishes and openworked oscillating weight inspired by the Manufacture’s logo.
The case is water-resistant up to 3 atm and it pairs its exquisite curves with a pink gold bracelet. Delightfully supple and feeling soft to the skin, it wears comfortably and barely noticeable.
The Égérie self-winding is a very worthy addition to the Égérie Collection introduced earlier this year. Aesthetically and technically outstanding and utterly fascinating, this piece of jewellery will undoubtedly delight watch lovers.
