The Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 Chronograph Racing watch, limited to just 24 pieces, is expected to be available in December 2009. The creation of the 24 pieces follows the success of the two AMVOX2 Chronograph Racing introduced at Le Mans 2009.
The new watch honors the Aston Martin Racing team that reached excellent results in the 2009 edition of Le Mans 24 Hours. The timepiece also celebrates a successful three-year partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin.
The exclusive limited edition Jaeger-LeCoultre watch demonstrates a 44-mm-in-diameter case crafted in grade 5 titanium and provided with black PVD-coating. The case construction is 50-meter water-resistant. It is presented on a perforated calfskin strap fitted with a folding clasp in steel with PVD-coating.
The black and white dial is embellished with the signature gridwork motif of car radiator grills and is surrounded by a black flange. The dial is completed with applied metal hour-markers and black numerals provided with luminescent treatment.
The dial openings allow to drop a glance at some parts of the mechanical heart of the watch. This is a self-winding mechanical movement -Calibre Jaeger-LeCoultre 751E, that has been crafted, assembled and decorated by hand. The movement bridges and plates are ruthenium-coated, while the chronograph levers are created in orange eloxed aluminium (visible via an opening between 4 and 8 o’clock). The dial is shielded by a sapphire crystal.
The 280-part movement, beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, provides a 65-hour power reserve. It animates the following functions: conventional hours, and minutes, as well as the date and chronograph functions. It should be mentioned that the chronograph boasts to be the only one operating without push-pieces as it incorporates the revolutionary patented vertical-trigger system.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 Chronograph Racing watch is expected to be available at an approximate price of 20,000 dollars, as Watches.InfoNIAC.com found out.
