DESCRIPTION

  • AMVOX5 World Chronograph The fifth watch borne out of the partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin

    The AMVOX5 World Chronograph, the first timepiece in the AMVOX collection associating the chronograph with worldtime functions, celebrates the fifth watch borne out of the shared values of two exceptional brands: absolute respect for the noblest traditions; and the tireless pursuit of perfection.

    The Grande Maison in the Vallée de Joux and the famous British sports car maker are fuelled by the same passion: a love of mechanical beauty be it of the automobile or horological type. Jaeger-LeCoultre is the only manufacturer to unite over 40 professions and skills under a single roof, from watchmakers and artisans who perpetuate and enrich the heritage passed on by former generations, to microtechnical engineers and cutting-edge technology specialists.

    “Striving for success is one of the cornerstones of our partnership. The fabulous accomplishments that have punctuated the history of our brands have led to decisive breakthroughs, both in watchmaking and in car manufacturing”, said Jaeger-LeCoultre CEO Jérôme Lambert.

    Aston Martin Chief Executive, Dr. Ulrich Bez said: “Aston Martin and Jaeger-LeCoultre enjoy a highly productive collaboration, one which shares the values of each brand perfectly. The similar approach to manufacture, attention to detail and craftsmanship lends itself perfectly to this latest time piece in the AMVOX range.

    Shared passion and historical roots

    Jaeger-LeCoultre is reviving a prestigious although little-known chapter in its long history. In the wake of World War I, Edmond Jaeger had undertaken a daring diversification into a sector of which only a visionary mind could imagine the future importance: the automobile industry. Thanks to their accuracy and reliability, Jaeger counters soon appeared on the most luxurious cars of the era. From the 1920s onward, the speedometers made in the Vallée de Joux earned an unassailable market position, with 95% of motor-racing competitions won by cars equipped with Jaeger counters. To meet the steadily increasing demand, Jacques-David set up a workshop in London which within a few years became a leading producer in the field of automobile dashboard instruments.

    AMVOX5 World Chronograph : the collection’s first worldtime chronograph

    In 2010, the AMVOX5 World Chronograph, the fifth creation in the line, has caused a sensation as the first Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece to boast both chronograph and worldtime functions. Its appearance comprises all the successful signature features of the AMVOX line: luminescent white numerals and hour-markers arranged in the classic 270° sweep; the openworked dial adorned with a gridwork motif evoking the radiator grilles on Aston Martin cars; as well as the time and chronograph functions displayed on round subdials complemented by a movement operating indicator at 6 o’clock above the Jaeger-LeCoultre logo. The inner bezel ring carries the cities symbolising the 24 time zones and enabling one to immediately check the time anywhere on the globe. In a subtle detail emphasizing the watch’s automobile heritage, London is replaced by Gaydon, the town in Warwickshire where the prestigious Aston Martin cars are painstakingly made. The splendid mechanical Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 752 powering the AMVOX5 is distinguished by its exceptional accuracy and sturdiness. Its column-wheel and vertical-clutch chronograph, in harmony with the finest watchmaking traditions, boasts remarkable technical characteristics such as the lubricant-free ceramic ball-bearing winding mechanism, the large variable-inertia balance, and the laser-welded balance-spring, together ensuring peerless reliability and longevity.

    This “all-road” calibre is housed within a case in high-tech ceramics and titanium or 18-carat pink gold. Its entirely in-house production is based on innovative cutting-edge processes identical to those used in the aeronautics and medical technology industries. Obtained by high-pressure compaction of yttrium oxide combined with a binding substance and a small proportion of zirconium oxide, the mixture is then heated to 2000°C. After radioscopic testing of the homogeneity of the resulting material, the ceramic block is then machined using diamond-tipped tools. The deep black case which is significantly lighter than steel and twice as hard, guarantees the AMVOX5 World Chronograph unprecedented resistance and longevity, making it a timepiece able to stand the test of time without showing its age.

    The AMVOX5 World Chronograph will be produced in editions of 300 in ceramics and titanium, and 200 in ceramics and pink gold. Two Racing versions, each issued in 100-piece limited editions, will appeal to motor-racing enthusiasts. The day/night disc on these models is distinguished by its striking black and orange or black and white shades. The large seconds hand also features an orange tint inspired by the Aston Martin racing-car prototypes. The chronograph counter discs are carbon-finished in a manner reminiscent of the LMP1 cars.

    About Aston Martin

    Aston Martin entered 2010 as Britain's most exclusive sports car company, a reputation the brand enjoys around the world. Since 2007, when Aston Martin entered independent ownership, the company has embarked on an ambitious programme of new product launches and expanded facilities. Today, Aston Martin is proud to manufacture an impressive range of sports cars at both its ultra-modern factory at Gaydon in Warwickshire and a new production facility in Graz, Austria. In addition, the company has an engine plant in Cologne, Germany, where it creates the bespoke Aston Martin V8 and V12 engines as well as an engineering test centre alongside the legendary Nürburgring race track. Innovation is a core component of the company, and quality of craftsmanship is paramount, ensuring every Aston Martin, including the Rapide, DBS, V12 Vantage, DB9 and V8 Vantage, represents the pinnacle of their class.

    In 2010, Aston Martin launched the Rapide, a four-door sports car. Greeted with universal acclaim by the world's media, the Rapide can lay claim to being one of the most beautiful four-door cars ever made, a harmonious and elegant design that demonstrates Aston Martin's ongoing commitment to the car as a sculptural object. 2010 will also mark the birth of the One-77, Aston Martin's fastest and most advanced road car. This highly bespoke V12-powered supercar is undergoing extensive testing in advance of the first of 77 customer deliveries later in the year. Already, a development car has recorded a top speed in excess of 220mph, exceeding the already high expectations for Aston Martin's most powerful ever production model.

    Founded in 1914 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford, Aston Martin builds sports cars for the enthusiast, never losing sight of its sporting roots and craft heritage, all the while constantly innovating and improving production techniques, design technology, and product quality. Today, high technology processes are used in tandem with craftsmanship and hand-finished materials, ensuring each and every car is an individual statement as well as a class-leading performer. In 96 years, Aston Martin has produced just over 50,000 cars. This heritage is preserved by the company's famous Works Service, operating out of Aston Martin's historic premises in Newport Pagnell, Berkshire, and providing owners from 29 countries around the world with an unsurpassed level of customer care, as well as enhancement and restoration services.
