Vacheron Constantin Égérie Creative Edition – daintily engraved like Burano lace
Daintily engraved like Burano lace, every aspect of the Égérie Creative Edition watch involved fascinating expertise in ancient decorative techniques.
The pleated tapisserie motif gives volume to the black enamel – a complex-to-master material. In the moon-phase window, the mother-of-pearl night star shines through a 0.27 mm-thick plique-à-jour enamel cloud – a genuine technical prowess in the history of the Maison.
The extreme fineness of the white gold lace threads is comparable to that of an eyelash. The master engraver and the master gem-setter deployed the full measure of their expertise, creating the exceptional lace-inspired motif studded with 250 brilliant-cut diamonds, and 292 others lightning up the case and crown.
