In celebration of the 8th anniversary of cooperation with the well-known car manufacturer Aston Martin, Jaeger-LeCoultre, the top Swiss watchmaker, launches the AMVOX7 chronograph watch-the world’s first vertical start chronograph with fan-shaped power Store the displayed chronograph. Designed by the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory in Vallée de Joux, Switzerland, the AMVOX series has been fascinating high-end watch and motorsport lovers for nearly 10 years. The new case of the AMVOX7 Chronograph, with its ergonomic features, adds more features to this iconic watch series, demonstrating the avant-garde spirit of Jaeger-LeCoultre that perfectly integrates aesthetic design and technological innovation.
Sophisticated design makes functions more intuitive
The decorative pattern of the AMVOX7 Chronograph dial perfectly reproduces the air grille of Vanquish, a new sports car released by Aston Martin in June. And this obvious similarity becomes a symbol, which makes the design of the watch perfectly match its technical performance. Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmakers and craftsmen also worked hard in the details of decoration and production. The black dial and the dark gray chronograph have white and red colors to make the whole more readable; The decoration gives the watch an outstanding depth.
The AMVOX series introduces a new feature of the sector power reserve display. On the AMVOX7 Chronograph, this feature is displayed through the upper flange windows on both sides of the black dial. When the watch is wound, the red power reserve indicators are close to each other, as if to surround the 12 o’clock digital time scale, and as the barrel is released, they disappear again, and the chronograph starter gradually appears. This visually striking display coincides with the intense thrill of motorsport.
The exquisite decorative craftsmanship on the fifth-grade titanium case is extraordinary. The edges and corners of the lugs are carefully polished, and the patterns of the sandblasted, polished and satin-finished alternating treatment on the crown and the latch are even more outstanding. The edges of the case and under the lugs are polished with a fine lateral satin finish.
In 2005, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched a new chronograph watch series with a vertical start chronograph, bringing intuitive display technology to the field of short time interval measurement for the first time. Before the race, there is no need to keep your finger on the button to ensure accurate calculation of the departure time. Simply press the watch’s crystal mirror to move the case along its level axis and immediately start a new round of timing. As with all revolutionary inventions, this timing system is so simple to operate that it is hard for enthusiasts interested in precise timing to imagine what would happen without such a timing system. In fact, pressing the 12 o’clock position starts and stops the timer, while pressing the lower end of the dial resets the hands of the timer to zero. The latch on the side of the case acts as an operating lever to prevent all misoperations. When the latch is in the middle position, all timing functions can work normally as described above. In contrast, when it is in the upper position, the timer function is locked, and when it is in the lower position, the timer can be started or stopped, but it cannot be reset to zero.
This intuitiveness is not only reflected in the mechanical structure of the clock, but also in its function display. The chronograph dial on the black skeleton dial has a dark gray design, and these two colors perfectly contrast with the white numbers and hands. The extremely practical movement display is located below the dial and above the date window at 6 o’clock.
Technical performance meets all challenges
This timepiece has the most perfect performance, and its exquisitely detailed processing is even more enviable.
The case of the AMVOX series watch has a new charm. The lugs and the case are integrally formed in the structure, so that they are better integrated with the bracelet, which perfectly conforms to the ergonomic concept. The crown has a similar design-it also blends into the case, making it easier to grip and more precise. Although these changes are basic, we can’t ignore the comfort of the wrist due to the change in the shape of the case. Thanks to the new components added to the case back, the bracelet can be perfectly curved at all times, ensuring that the watch has a more ergonomic shape for the forearm. The track is like everywhere in daily life. Even the slightest discomfort can be a hindrance to rapid decision-making, and this may be the key to success.
For Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin, failing to reach perfection doesn’t stop there. Although many innovative designs have been satisfactory, the R & D team of the AMVOX7 Chronograph has miraculously created a quick strap replacement system that enables the wearer to adjust the bracelet according to his mood and needs. Instantly change-the metal bracelet is the best companion for outdoor adventures, while the leather strap shows extraordinary taste and blends perfectly with various elegant occasions.
These qualities are derived from a movement that is beyond imagination and gorgeous in appearance. In this regard, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 756 self-winding mechanical movement is also appreciated by connoisseurs. With a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and a power reserve of up to 65 hours, it also excels in ruggedness, reliability and accuracy. When a mechanical work rivals Aston Martin’s new Vanquish sports car, it is destined to impress everyone.
This combination requires the joint efforts of both partners. Although it seems easy to find cooperation opportunities between top watch brands and well-known car manufacturers, cooperation that lacks common values cannot last. After 8 years of cooperation between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin, the cooperation between the two has entered an unprecedented stage of development. This collaboration has also spawned a number of outstanding masterpieces of major advancements in the field of fusion technology. The secret of success comes from the shared vision of the future and the creative passions that drive each other.
