Jaeger-LeCoultre has come up with a new addition of the AMVOX series. The AMVOX5 World Chronograph Racing, inspired by the Aston Martin, is the ultimate in refinement and a timepiece that is very exclusive as only 100 pieces are made. The partnership between Aston Martin and Jaeger-LeCoultre is not new. Thusfar it has developed to a technical and aesthetic perfection.
Teh AMVOX5 World Chronograph Racing features an off-white skeletonized dial with a multi-layer design. The dial features a 12-hour chrono register at 9, a 30-minute chrono at 3, a small data indication between 4 and 5 and a small running seconds indicator at 6 o’clock. A nice detail is that the seconds indicator has the Aston Martin logo on it.
The watch is fitted with a black ceramic round case 44m in diameter and 15.2mm in thickness. The case is satin-brushed finished with a titanium bezel, case back, crowns and pushers. The crown is a simple three position pull-out one, a shame they didn’t opt for the screw-down. The rectangular titanium chrono pushers feature orange inlays to match the orange back of the strap and to resemble car pedals. A crown is located at 10 o’clock to operate the worldtimer functions on this watch.
To make things even better, this watch is also a worldtimer featuring a beautiful flange with 24 cities/time zones. The dial also features floating Arabic numerals with luminescent material —somewhat weak and not very long lasting— at 12, 2, 4, 8 and 10 o’clock and skeletonized baton hands also with luminescent inlays.
The watch wears slightly bigger as it is. But nevertheless it is extremely comfortable. If you have an Aston Martin, or just adore heigh-end watch pieces this is a must have.
