It’s hard for a star struck relationship to remain in the spotlight without suffering, but superstars Aston Martin and Jaeger-LeCoultre could teach some Hollywood sweethearts a thing or two when it comes to keeping the love alive.
I’m referring to Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin’s AMVOX-7 Chronograph, of course.
After eight years of producing some of the most coveted watches in the business, the British automaker and Swiss watchmaker have done it again…and again, and again.
Their latest masterpiece the AMVOX-7 Chronograph continues their dominance and is a timepiece worth celebrating.
Sporty, lightweight, and yet undeniably chic, the AMVOX-7 combines all of the best elements of design seen in Aston Martin cars with all of the technical precision that Jaeger-LeCoultre can bring to the table. The ultra-light titanium case adds an edge to the piece, keeping it modern and bringing to mind the luxury cars, specifically the Aston Martin Vanquish.
The dial imitates the Vanquish’s grille pattern on the radiator, and includes a radial power reserve indicator (with an “E” and “F” to indicate its reserve). Though with a 65 hour power reserve, you’ll have to burn through a lot of gas before you need to refill this timepiece, which runs on the automatic Calibre 756 movement.
The pops of red color on the hands and around the indices also add to the sporty/sportscar feeling, adding clever touches without being cutesy.
The AMVOX-7 also has the distinction of being the first Jaeger-LeCoultre watch to feature a vertical trigger chronograph. By unlocking the glass and pressing at the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock functions, you can stop or start the timing function. It’s the first of its kind over at Jaeger-Coultre and leaves us excited for what will be rolling out their vault the next time.
In the meanwhile, it’s hard to be more excited about their most recent collaboration. With a sporty feel that maintains its luxury feeling, the timepiece is a great addition to any collector’s set. As sleek and chic as an Aston Martin, the AMVOX-7 is a unique blend of power and great design.
This high end model won’t be found at your local dealerships, however. With a price tag of $26,000, only those who are most dedicated to the watch will be able to buy into this amazing chronograph.
