The renowned horologer, Jaeger-LeCoultre, added new functions to its watch, the AMVOX2 Transponder 2014. Thanks to this new function, Aston Martin owners will now be able to lock and unlock their car from a distance with their watch.
Jaeger-LeCoultre collaborates with Aston Martin
After 18 months of intense collaboration with the luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin, Jaeger-LeCoultre developed its latest timepiece, capable of opening an Aston Martin from a distance.
This kind of programme was already present on some of the brand’s older models, such as the AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder or the AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder. Nevertheless, the locking functions only worked with the prototype’s corresponding Aston Martin.
Contrary to its predecessors, the AMVOX2 Transponder 2014 works with all of the British car manufacturer’s cars. The timepiece also allows its wearer to find their car by turning on its lights from a distance.
Using these functions is extremely simple. The programme turns on by a simple touch on the watch’s sapphire crystal.
An exceptional watch signed Jaeger-LeCoultre
The AMVOX2 watch is 44mm wide in titanium and uses a highly complicated case that allows for the sapphire crystal pusher as well as the sliding chronograph system. The watch houses a Caliber 751E automatic movement with a 65 hours power reserve.
The AMVOX2 Transponder 2014 imagined by the Swiss watchmaker uses a micro-transmitter in its double case back, which allows its wearer to open and lock the Aston Martin with a light touch on the glass section marked ‘Close’ and ‘Open’. The antenna for the device applies using thermal vapour depositation.
The watch AMVOX2 Transponder 2014 by Jaeger LeCoultre, which can lock and unlock an Aston Martin, has a titanium case set with 41 rubies.
