The first AMVOX to combine the chronograph and a world time clock

11th April, 2010. Presented on the Paul Ricard circuit during the 8-hour Castellet racing event, where the Aston Martin Racing stable distinguished itself brilliantly in 2nd place with the drivers Harold Primat, Stefan Mücke and Adrian Fernandez, the AMVOX5 World Chronograph opens a new chapter in the partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin, and continues to combine horological expertise and automobile performance in a refined manner. By selecting a city on the turning flange, instant visualisation of the time in any of the world's 24 time zones is possible at any moment. With a nod to the watch's automobile lineage, London is replaced by the town of Gaydon in Warwickshire, where Aston Martin's headquarters and factory are located. The AMVOX5 World Chronograph will only be made in a limited series: 300 with a ceramic and titanium case, and 200 with a ceramic and 18-carat pink gold case. A sure hit with car racing enthusiasts, two Racing models will be made in ceramic and titanium, with a black or white dial, each in a limited series of 100. Inspired by the performance of the meteoric LMP1 Aston Martin Racing prototype, these timepieces feature chronographic counters executed in carbon fibre, punctuated with a flash of orange on the world time disc, the chronographic second hand and the overstitching on the calfskin leather strap.
