Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin Unveil AMVOX5 World Chronograph Watch

Apr 13, 2010
Aston Martin and Jaeger-LeCoultre are proud to present their latest timekeeping creation that has smartly united the chronograph function and a world time clock.
The new Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX5 World Chronograph watch demonstrates powerful style, innovative spirit and great performance.

You can simply select a city on the turning flange of the watch to instantly see the time in any of the 24 time zones of the world. It should be mentioned that the city of London is replaced by the town of Gaydon in Warwickshire, the location of Aston Martin's headquarters and factory.

The partially open dial of the new AMVOX5 watch features the design that will make you think of the radiator grille of a sports car. The dial is completed with luminescent white indicators and numerals forming the 270-degree display. The chronograph function is presented via the central seconds hand and 30-minute and 12-hour counters. At 6 o'clock, you will notice a dial opening for the movement operating indication. It shows off the signature Aston Martin winged emblem.

The heart of the AMVOX5 World Chronograph watch is the high-precision Jaeger-LeCoultre 752 calibre. The chronograph movement, incorporating the column wheel and vertical trigger, boasts a winding mechanism on ceramic ball bearings with no need for lubrication, a large variable inertia balance, as well as laser-welded balance spring. The 41-ruby movement is constructed from 279 pieces. It gives an advantage of a 65-hour power reserve.

The 44mm case of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch is sculptured from high-tech ceramic and titanium or 18K pink gold. The case construction is based on innovative techniques and processes applied in the aeronautical and medical fields. The weight of the intensely black case is remarkably less than the weight of a steel case, but it is twice as hard.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX5 World Chronograph watch will be available in a limited number of 300 pieces for the ceramic and titanium version, and 200 pieces for the ceramic and 18K pink gold version. The timepiece is 50-meter water-resistant.

Jaeger-LeCoultre will also release two Racing models of the chronograph to be highly acclaimed among car racing fans. The timepieces, limited to 100 pieces each, will demonstrate a ceramic-and-titanium case and a black or white dial with chronographic counters rendered in carbon fiber, with a flash of orange on the world time disc, the chronograph seconds hand and the overstitching on the calfskin leather strap. The creators of the watches have been inspired by the LMP1 Aston Martin Racing prototype.
