Vacheron Constantin's Égérie Watches Are The Muse Of The Minute
Named after an horological muse of the brand derived from Egeria, a Roman water nymph, Vacheron Constantin’s new Égérie collection is the ultimate statement in craftsmanship, integrating professional know-how and rarity that is driven by passion, creativity and an eye for meticulous detail.
Haute horlogerie and haute couture share this same vocation, being continuously reinvented by artisans working behind the scenes, craftsmen and women who share a passion for excellence and beauty. Égérie was born from the conjunction between these two fields. Haute couture instilled a sophisticated style, subtly paired with the brand’s asymmetrical aesthetic, thus faithfully perpetuating the Vacheron Constantin heritage.
Imbued with this two-fold inspiration, the new Égérie collection weaves watchmaking femininity with a classic look ‘draped’ with mischievous touches that reflect today’s women: inspiring, independent and charismatic.
Haute couture also invokes elegant pleated designs on the dial, envisioned in the delicate interplay of textures and intertwined shapes, alternating flat and subtly raised areas: a pleated effect reminiscent of fine fabric. A diamond ‘halo’ resembling slender braiding accentuates the feminine shape of the case. It features polished contours and 58 round-cut diamonds set in the bezel.
The first members of the Égérie collection are the Self-Winding 35mm model with date and a 37mm model with moon phase, both offered in 18k pink gold or stainless steel. Beating behind the scenes is the in-house self-winding movement. Its 40-hour power reserve endows the timepiece with a degree of autonomy perfectly suited to a modern lifestyle. And above all, sophistication in each and every detail is expressed through pleasingly harmonious geometry punctuated by 18-carat gold arabic numerals, daintily scalloped like lace. With a clever system of interchangeable leather straps, it is also easy to adjust the look of the watch to suit the mood of the day.
Égérie is also the modern interpretation of aesthetic codes cherished by Vacheron Constantin, which has been offering off-centre displays since the early 19th century, notably by playing on two intertwined circles. Égérie has made this its signature touch. The date or moon-phase integration is thus part of a subtle diagonal line formed by the Vacheron Constantin logo and the crown taking its place between 1 and 2 o’clock. Depending on the model, the latter is adorned with a cabochon-cut moonstone or a rose-cut diamond. This creative freedom is driven by a bold spirit that makes all the difference.
The mischievous Égérie has a strong character reflecting an elegance that is firmly embedded in its era, a daily companion and a confidante of the most precious evenings. It is a muse that has inspired a collection that represents the modern woman of today.
