During the 12th Beijing International Automobile Exhibition, Jaeger-LeCoultre joined hands with Aston Martin to present the Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 DBS Transponder forward watch, the first with control A mechanical timepiece with the power of a top sports car. This is not only a breakthrough in timing and craftsmanship, but it has also opened up a whole new field for the watch industry. Today let us fully appreciate its other charms. The official model is: 192243A
Aston Martin DBS is a veritable luxury sports car that fully demonstrates Aston Martin’s unique values for power, beauty and passion. The Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 DBS Transponder watch specially made for Aston Martin DBS owners. It combines traditional superb watchmaking technology and high-tech mechanical technology. As a technical support, it is designed for V12 engine DBS sports cars. Out of close cooperation between the two brands.
腕表 This watch contains a miniature transmitter for activating the Aston Martin DBS sports car door lock switch, while retaining many of the functions of this famous keyless timer. Jaeger-LeCoultre completely redesigned the micro-transceiver module, its circuit layout, and transmitting antenna from a watchmaking perspective. Jaeger-LeCoultre worked closely with Aston Martin and the R & D process took more than 18 months.
The case and crown of the AMVOX2 DBS Transponder are made of 18K rose gold, which is not only a gorgeous interpretation, but also a status symbol for the two brands in their respective fields.
The dials are extremely delicate, with a suspended metallic gray DBS logo, a separate Aston Martin logo is added to the movement display and a ruthenium gray plywood, and the polished black dial and DBS The dashboard of the sports car remains the same.
There is also a display window on the outer ring position of the dial to expose the internal parts of the chronograph and transponder functions, which is comparable to the brake disc shown in the tire rim of a DBS sports car.
The bottom of the watch is also made of 18K rose gold, and the DBS logo is clearly marked with black text, which complements the logo on the dial.
With a black calfskin strap and 18K rose gold pin buckle, the watch is luxurious and elegant.
Functionally speaking, the birth of this watch can be said to be a combination of chronology and automotive engineering. The AMVOX2 DBS Transponder is equipped with a miniature sending system that gives Aston Martin DBS sports car lock and unlock control. At the same time, the vertical start mechanism of the buttonless chronograph is retained. When the driver approaches the sports car, he only needs to press the ‘open’ position of the watch mirror (between 8 o’clock and 9 o’clock), and then he can drive the door opening system. Door in the ‘closed’ position.
The pin at the nine o’clock position of the watch is like the gear of a car. When it is in the middle position, all the timekeeping functions can work normally as described above. On the contrary, when it is on the top, the timekeeping function is locked, and when it is on the bottom, the timer can be started or stopped, but it cannot be reset to zero. It does not require any buttons, and all depends on pressing the watch’s sapphire crystal surface. Operation.
传统 Subverted the traditional button watch, all functions are completed by pressing the buttons on the sapphire glass. This is a traditional subversion, and the entire case of the watch can be rotated at a certain angle. The design features of the AMVOX2 DBS Transponder are complementary to the outstanding Aston Martin sports car. The 270-degree curved design on the black dial is exactly comparable to the instrument panel in a DBS car at night, which echoes with its illuminated numbers and white dial; while the outer ring with a curved polished texture is in the position from 4:00 to 8:00 The hollow design is adopted between them to allow the wearer to appreciate the operation posture of the chronograph racket at any time.
This superb watch is equipped with the Jaeger-LeCoultre 751E self-winding movement. In addition, developers have to face another major technical challenge: Since the mechanical watch plays the role of Faraday’s cage, The movement provides an electrostatic shield to prevent the accuracy of the movement from being affected; therefore, in order to ensure that the watch has the well-known reliable performance of the Jaeger-LeCoultre movement, and at the same time the repeater can operate without errors even in the vicinity of the metal pendulum. The project, which involved cutting-edge technology and meticulous thought, took eighteen months to complete.
Summary: As a combination of the two top nobles in the field of automobiles and watches, many friends of this watch believe that they have a good idea of its price positioning. Of course, apart from the price factor, this challenge seems to break a few The traditional concept of the watch for hundreds of years has incorporated more high-tech elements. Some watch friends even say that the concept of an ‘Apple’ touchscreen in a watch is indeed very rare in the watch industry, and it is so top-notch. I believe that many people are also exposed for the first time.
