As night falls, the Vacheron Constantin Égérie series of self-winding watches is a debutante, dress flowing with the movements of her dance. “Égérie” is this year’s latest series named after the Roman water nymph”geria” and dedicated to elegant women in their endless pursuit of elevated taste. This self-winding watch is a ceaseless pursuer of time and comes in two versions, a 19K 5N pink gold or stainless steel. The watch’s iconic feature is the asymmetrical design which captures the sentiment of each moment through different styles.
Time may pass, but the Égérie series remains in your company. The slightly curved case measures 35mm and boasts 58 full-set diamonds in the bezel; the ears of the watch extend from case while a curved moonstone is inlaid between the 1 and 2 o’clock position, emanating gentle light and shadow. The straps of this series contain a unique design; the 18K 5N pink gold edition includes 3 Mississippi crocodile skin straps (satin effect is present in all 3 models of raspberry pink, night blue, and candied chestnut) that can be quickly replaced, enabling the watch to adapt to any occasion. The steel edition comes with an exquisitely polished steel bracelet and triple-blade folding clasp that accentuates the watch’s smooth lines and extraordinary quality.
This watch uses classic “fold” design to add a bit of playfulness. The manufacture’s guillochage workshops utilize the historical “tapestry” technique to interpret the features of modern women such as abundant inspiration, independence, and unparalleled charisma. The 18K numerals include laced edges and are arranged in a fan-style, with each diamond exhibiting the texture of precious embroidery. The classical aesthetics of Vacheron Constantin’s off-centered design forms a whispered dialogue between haute horology and haute couture, bestowing a gentle femininity. The straps of the Égérie self-winding watches contain playful and distinct personalities. Their timeless elegance is similar to a confidant that provides accompaniment during the precious hours of each day.
