  • Catalogue Essay

    Born from the partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin in 2006, the AMVOX 2 is not only the perfection of precision and performance, but an intuitive creation unlocked by the experience of driving an Aston Martin. Sporting a round case with the absence of buttons, one might perceive it as a time-only watch, yet the AMVOX 2 is a chronograph operated as easily as starting a car engine by the press of the start button. Fitted with the calibre 751E conceived by engineer Francis Cretin, the mechanism is controlled by a vertical trigger. The wearer can start and stop the chronograph by pressing on the sapphire glass at the 12 o’clock area, and to reset to zero by a simple press at the 6 o’clock area. Incredibly intuitive and user friendly, the system was based on a complex mechanism made up of levers fitted on a miniature stainless steel rolling that ensured the case and bezel both pivoted together in proportion to the watch's lugs. Cleverly designed with maximum legibility, the extraordinary semi-openwork dial enables spectators to admire the mechanics that evoked the brake calipers of the Aston Martin. In addition to sublime functionality, a three-position selector placed on the side of the case enables the locking function of the chronograph to avoid accidental releases.

    Fashioning a robust sheen of warm silver tones, the blue accents of the chronograph hands and numerals added sportiness to the handsome appeal. Furthermore, the small seconds sub-register is indicated by no other than Aston Martin’s logo disc that adds another dimension to the depth of the timepiece. The present example is cased in titanium and platinum and made in a limited edition of only 100 pieces. Offered by the original owner and made with supreme exclusivity, the present example is numbered 95 and offered in excellent condition with its exclusively designed presentation box.

  • Artist Biography

    Jaeger-LeCoultre

    Swiss • 1833

    Not all companies in the watchmaking field have been able to stand the test of time quite like Jaeger LeCoultre, also known as the "watchmaker's watchmaker." Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre and originally named LeCoutre, the firm provided watchmaking's top brands, such as Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, the high-grade, unfinished mechanical movements with which they completed their watches.

    In the early 1900s, Cartier's watch supplier Edmond Jaeger sought out LeCoultre's help in creating the world's thinnest watches. The collaboration resulted in the creation of Cartier's earliest Tank and Santos watches, all housed with LeCoultre movements. The duo decided to merge in 1937, and the firm officially became the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand by which collectors know and adore it today. Some of the firm's most significant and important timepieces include the Reverso, the Memovox, the Atmos clock and, among modern watches, their Master Complications.
