Égérie - Vacheron Constantin's New Collection Dedicated to Women

24 February 2020

By Peter Vossner

Haute Horlogerie and Haute Couture share this same vocation, continuously reinvented by the artisans working behind the scenes. Égérie was born from the conjunction between these two fields of expertise. Imbued with this two-fold inspiration, the new Égérie collection weaves the face of watchmaking femininity according to Vacheron Constantin. A watch featuring a classic look "draped" with a mischievous touch reflecting today’s women: inspiring, independent and charismatic.

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 daringly taking its place between 1 and 2 o’clock.

Égérie Self-Winding

Self-winding version in 18K 5N rose gold or steel.

35 mm pebble-shaped case is crowned with a slender bezel overstitched with 58 diamonds.

Égérie Moon Phase

The night star is at the very heart of the Égérie moon phase model, which comes in a 37 mm case in 18K 5N rose gold or steel, with a diamond-set bezel.

An offset circle glittering with 36 diamonds displays a dreamlike vision of time, with the 18K gold moon appearing in a starry sky revealed behind clouds formed by a delicate mother-of-pearl assembly.

Design Elements of the Égérie Self-Winding & Égérie Moon Phase

  • Composed of concentric circles, its centre and periphery are graced with a pleated pattern, using the historical "tapestry" technique.
  • Calligraphic numerals evoke fine embroidery
  • Leaf-type hours and minutes hands recall the fine needles used by the nimble fingers at work in Haute Couture ateliers
  • Crown is graced with a cabochon-cut moonstone, a symbol of calm and serenity.
  • A bold move for this versatile watch, escorted by three interchangeable leather straps for the 18K 5N pink gold version. The steel model is paired with a polished metal bracelet designed to ensure an extremely flowing look and feel.

Égérie Moon Phase Diamond-Pavé

Stunning case display of 37 mm 18K white gold sparkles with 292 diamonds, while the dial deploys its concentric circles amid a shower of 510 diamonds resembling a precious embroidery
