Spotlight: Vacheron Constantin – Égérie moon phase jewellery
2 mins read
Vacheron Constantin’s new ladies’ collection is enriched by a jewellery model entirely bedecked in diamonds. Drawing its dual inspiration from the confluence of Haute Manufacture skills, Égérie moon phase jewellery embodies the refinement of Haute Couture and the technical sophistication of Haute Horlogerie. This interpretation is highlighted by a 37mm white gold case, a dial and a bracelet studded with 1,344 brilliant-cut diamonds, along with a rose-cut diamond adorning the offset crown aligned with the moon-phase display.
Behind the scenes, time is regulated by the Manufacture-made 1088 L self-winding moon phase calibre whose refined finishing is revealed through the sapphire crystal caseback: sweeping over its hand-crafted Côtes de Genève finishes is a 22-carat gold oscillating weight, elegantly openworked and inspired by the shape of the Maltese cross. An unmistakably Haute Horlogerie signature for this Égérie moon phase jewellery timepiece available exclusively from Vacheron Constantin.
This visually harmonious composition influenced by the heritage of the Maison beats to the tune of the Manufacture-made 1088 L self-winding moon phase calibre, whose refined finishing is revealed through the sapphire caseback.
