Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin Present AMVOX7 Chronograph Watch

Dec 06, 2012
Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin celebrate the eighth anniversary of their successful collaboration with the introduction of the AMVOX7 Chronograph watch. The novelty represents the first vertical-trigger chronograph that boasts a radial power-reserve display.

The AMVOX7 Chronograph has maintained the distinctive features of the collection. The case has acquired an even more ergonomic shape.

The watchmakers and artisans of the brand have paid particular attention to creating refined decorations. The watch demonstrates a rich diversity of finishes enhancing the surfaces and the dial possesses remarkable visual depth. The dial also provides supreme readability, with its anthracite grey chronograph counters and red and white accents.

The open-worked black dial of the new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch catches the glance by its motif - the pattern of the radiator grille of the Vanquish, the brand-new car introduced by Aston Martin last June.

The radial power-reserve display is presented via two apertures in the upper part of the inner bezel ring, on either side of the dial. When the timepiece is wound, the red power-reserve discs move up closer to the 12 oclock numeral. When the barrel winds down, they move down, gradually revealing the chronograph levers.

The 44 mm case of the AMVOX7 Chronograph is sculptured from grade 5 titanium and demonstrates refined technical finishes. The bevels of the lugs are thoroughly polished. The crown and the trigger stand out due to alternating shotpeened, polished and satin-brushed surfaces. The case middle and the underside of the lugs are horizontally satin-brushed.

The first vertical-trigger chronograph watch was unveiled by Jaeger-LeCoultre in 2005. With the vertical trigger chronograph system, the user doesnt need to activate the chronograph with pushers on the case side. Instead, the user has to push directly on the crystal of the watch to activate the chronograph function. To start or stop the chronograph, the user pushes down at 12 o'clock.

To reset the function, it is necessary to push the crystal at 6 o'clock. To prevent accidental pushes, the watch incorporates a special trigger found on the side of the case to be used for locking the chronograph functions.

The movement operating indicator is visible in the lower part of the dial, just above the date window at 6 oclock.

The heart of the model is a mechanical automatic movement - the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 756. Operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the mechanism provides a 65-hour power reserve.

The lugs in the shape of a monobloc construction have been used for improved integration of the strap, implying an optimally ergonomic fit. The crown is also smartly integrated into the case-construction, providing a more comfortable grip and more accurate handling.

The watchmakers have also subtly changed the shape of the case for its enhanced positioning on the wrist. They added a new element on the case-back to allow the wristband keep a perfect curve, this way providing the ergonomic fit of the timepiece on the forearm. All the case improvements mentioned above guarantee utmost comfort of wearing.

The new Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX7 Chronograph watch boasts a system used for extremely user-friendly wristband change. The watch may be coupled with a sportier metal bracelet or an elegant leather strap.
