Vacheron Constantin Unveil Égérie Collection of Women’s Watches

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watch brand Vacheron Constantin has unveiled its first women’s watch collection for many years with a new series of lavish timepieces called the Égérie – which translates into English to mean ‘muse’.

The design of the watches in the new Égérie collection has drawn inspiration from the pleats of a woman’s gown, with each boasting an eye-catching sunburst pleated centre dial and outer chapter ring.

This haute couture inspiration translates in several elements including the numerals and curves that imitate fine embroidery work, while hour and minute leaf-style hands are reminiscent of a thin haute couture sewing needle.

The collection includes a total of five models, each with self-winding movements. The watches are all created in 18-karat rose gold or in stainless steel and charm with dazzling double diamond-set bezels.

The brand is also releasing a 37mm 18-karat white gold moonphase version whose case and dial are completely set with diamonds. The cases boast 292 scintillating diamonds, while the dial is paved with 510 diamonds.

Other notable features include an easy-to-use interchangeable strap system, while depending on the colour of the dial buyers can choose complimenting straps. The pink gold watch has navy, raspberry, and chestnut brown as options, the diamond pave watch has alligator and satin options, and the stainless steel model has a polished five-row bracelet with asymmetric links.

Pricing for the Égérie collection ranges from $21,100 to $33,400 for the 18-karat gold version, while the complete pave diamond white gold watch is available for $52,000.

Founded by Jean-Marc Vacheron in 1755, Vacheron Constantin is one of the world’s most famous luxury watch makers.
