The partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin celebrates its eighth anniversary with the presentation of the AMVOX7, the first vertical-trigger chronograph equipped with a power reserve display. The legendary AMVOX line seduces both lovers of fine watches and motor-sports fans alike.

A refined design equipped with intuitive functions
The AMVOX7 Chronograph immediately attracts the attention with the motif that decorates its dial; it reproduces the design on the radiator grille of the Vanquish, the very latest model unveiled by Aston Martin last June. The titanium case is distinguished by extremely refined technical finishes. New functions have now been introduced into the AMVOX line for the first time: an intuitive display method that is in perfect accord with the sensation of immediacy conferred by a sporting outlook and the power reserve display. In 2005 the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre first presented its brand new vertical-trigger chronograph. Like all revolutionary inventions, this system seems so simple and straightforward that athletes wanting to time their performances are wondering how they could ever have done without it. Quite simply, pressing at 12 o’clock stops or starts the chronograph mechanism, while pressing at the bottom of the dial resets the chronograph hands to zero.

A technical performance that is up to the challenge
With regard to the AMVOX’s “motor”, fine watch connoisseurs will appreciate the Jaeger-LeCoultre 756 automatic mechanical calibre. With its frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and its 65-hour power reserve, it has an impressive profile in terms of robustness, reliability and accuracy. The comparison between the AMVOX’s “motor” to that of the new Aston Martin Vanquish is inevitable.
The vitality of any collaboration depends on the enthusiasm contributed by each of the partners. As the partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin enters its eighth year, it is stronger than ever. This is a collaboration that has already given birth to exceptional creations representing major advances in the technical domain. The secret of this continued success lies exclusively in a shared vision based on a mutual passion for innovation.
