THE CORONATION OF DELICACY
The Geneva-based manufacture pays tribute to its long love affair with the feminine world through an exceptional watch that delicately combines different crafts.
The Egérie collection, born in 2020, is a double statement: Vacheron Constantin‘s desire to celebrate a long line of watches specially designed for women since the beginning of the 20th century and the wish to extend the exploration of this universe by interpreting the watch complications with delicacy. This fall, the Geneva-based manufacture unveils the Egérie Creative Edition, an exceptional timepiece crafted like precious embroidery, embodying the meeting of mechanical know-how and stylistic refinement, the encounter between four art crafts – enameling, guilloché, engraving and gem-setting – that express themselves in symbiosis.
Richly decorated, the face of this novelty is composed of a center pleated like a silky fabric and covered with translucent black enamel that hosts the trio of tapered hour, minute and second hands. A meticulously sculpted metal lace lined with diamonds bends the time indication while revealing a poetic bubble for the moon phases, two mother-of-pearl discs set against a starry sky that hide behind a plique-à-jour enamel cloud.
The white gold case, 37mm in diameter and 10.53mm thin, is entirely covered with diamonds, one of which is a rose-cut to cap the crown. This dazzling case houses the caliber 1088L, a 4hz automatic manufacture movement that delivers approximately 40 hours of power reserve. The Egérie Creative Edition is worn on the wrist with a black interchangeable strap in calfskin or alligator leather and a pin buckle punctuated with two gems.
