A watch for every day, for every evening, for every moment. Available in a quartz version in rose gold, this timepiece captures the spirit of the times.

The 30mm pebble-shaped case is crowned with a slender bezel overstitched with diamonds. Extended by integrated lugs, it is punctuated between 1 and 2 o’clock by a crown adorned with a cabochon-cut moonstone, of which the soft shade melds flawlessly into the overall aesthetic. The dial sets the stage for a delicate opaline silver work of art inspired by the world of haute couture: composed of concentric circles, its center and periphery are graced with a pleated pattern. Developed after several months of testing, this decoration was created in the manufacture’s guillochage workshop using the historical “tapestry” technique. By dint of lengthy long and extremely subtle operations, the artisan adjusts the gears of a 1904 pantograph-type machine in order to reproduce a large format motif in a miniature version on the dial. The expertly wielded tip of the burin, regularly sharpened by the artisan, gives rise to the draped-effect motif of the Égérie dial. Specially designed for the collection, the calligraphic numerals evoke fine embroidery, while the leaf-type hours and minutes hands recall the fine needles used by the nimble fingers at work in haute couture ateliers. In a signature touch, the date appearing in a circle rimmed with diamonds draws on the tradition of Vacheron Constantin’s off-center displays.

Its versatile elegance is paired with three interchangeable leather straps, enabling the wearer to adopt a variety of looks as the fancy takes her.
