A ONE-OF-A-KIND CREATION

This exceptional single-piece orchestrates a dialogue between three worlds, stemming from an exceptional artistic collaboration between Vacheron Constantin's spirit of innovation and Couture designer Yiqing Yin's ethereal universe.

THE DIAL

Free from hour markers, the mother-of-pearl dial extends an invitation to experience time in an intuitive and emotional way.

THE STRAP

Like the sinuous course of water in nature, the embroidered leather strap showcases curved patterns somewhere between snakeskin fragility and lace elegance.

THE SCENT

At the heart of the strap, a fragrance is infused. Offering an alchemy of emotions, the original scent creates a singular and sensorial perception of time.

A SENSORY WATCHMAKING EXPERIENCE

This stunning piece is embellished with 92 diamonds, while pink gold moons shy behind mother-of-pearl clouds. The dial's ‘pleats’ pattern unfolds in two stages in a soft lilac colour, chosen by Yiqing Yin for its delicate embodiment of a daydream.

Yiqing Yin, about the strap: "This work recounts the sinuous course of water in a natural landscape, unfurling its scalloped volutes, somewhere between the fragility of shed snakeskin and the elegance of abstract lace. The irregularities adorning the strap bear the imprint of the human hand, creating a visual dialogue with the pure geometry of the dial."

A SCENT OF INNOVATION

For this unique creation, master perfumer Dominique Ropion crafted an original fragrance, encapsulated within the embroidered strap and released with every wrist movement.

To accompany the Égérie concept watch, Yiqing Yin designed a Haute Couture dress that embodies the collection's essence using the latest fabric technologies. 

ÉGÉRIE MOON PHASE

The Égérie collection welcomes another lilac moon phase watch, issued in a 100-piece limited series developed with designer Yiqing Yin. Paired with three interchangeable straps in pastel colours, the gemset piece evokes the designer's ethereal fabrics while honouring the collection's aesthetic codes.
