At Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston. On the eighth anniversary of Martin’s partnership, the AMVOX7 was introduced. It is the world’s first chronograph with a vertical start timing device and a fan-shaped power reserve display. The AMVOX series, designed by the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory in Vallée de Joux, Switzerland, has fascinated high-end watches and motorsports lovers for nearly 10 years. The new ergonomic case of the AMVOX7 Chronograph has added even more features to this iconic watch series, highlighting its popularity with Aston.

Sophisticated design makes functions more intuitive
The decorative pattern of the AMVOX7 Chronograph dial perfectly reproduces Aston. Martin’s new sports car, the Vanquish’s grille, was unforgettable without a closer look. And this obvious kinship has become a guide, which makes the design of the watch perfectly match its technical performance. The watchmakers and craftsmen of Jaeger-LeCoultre also have great care in detail decoration and production. The black dial and the white and red colors on the dark gray chronograph make the whole more readable; the different decorations used on different surfaces give the watch an excellent sense of depth.
The AMVOX series introduces a new feature of the sector power reserve display. On the AMVOX7 Chronograph, this feature is displayed through the upper flange windows on both sides of the black dial. When the watch is wound, the red power reserve indicators are close to each other, as if to surround the 12 o’clock digital time scale, and as the barrel is released, they disappear again, and the chronograph starter gradually appears. This visually striking display coincides with the intense thrill of motorsport.
The exquisite decorative craftsmanship on the fifth-grade titanium case is extraordinary. The edges and corners of the lugs are carefully polished, and the patterns of micro-sandblasting, polishing and satin sanding on the crown and the bayonet are more outstanding. The edges of the case and under the lugs are polished with a fine lateral satin finish.
Jaeger-LeCoultre launched this new series of chronograph watches with vertical start chronographs in 2005, bringing intuitive display technology to the field of short time interval measurement for the first time. Before the game, you do n’t need to keep your finger on the button to ensure accurate calculation of the departure time. Simply pressing the watch’s crystal mirror can move the case along its level axis and immediately start a new round of timing. As with all revolutionary inventions, this system came into being when sports enthusiasts eager to accurately time their performance want to know to what extent the time display can be simple and intuitive. In fact, pressing the 12 o’clock position starts and stops the timer, while pressing the lower end of the dial resets the hands of the timer to zero. The latch on the side of the case acts as an operating lever to prevent all misoperations. When the latch is in the middle position, all timing functions can work normally as described above. In contrast, when it is in the upper position, the timer function is locked, and when it is in the lower position, the timer can be started or stopped, but it cannot be reset to zero.
This intuitiveness is not only reflected in the mechanical structure of the clock, but also in its function display. The chronograph dial on the black skeleton dial has a dark gray design, and these two colors perfectly contrast with the white numbers and hands. The extremely practical movement display is located below the dial and above the date window at 6 o’clock.
Technical performance meets all challenges
This timepiece has the most perfect performance, and its exquisite details are enviable, giving the case of the AMVOX series watch a new charm. The lugs and case are integrally formed in the structure, making it better integrate with the bracelet, which perfectly meets the ergonomic concept. The crown has a similar design-it also blends into the case, making it easier to grip and more precise. Although these changes are basic, we can’t ignore the comfort of the wrist due to the change in the shape of the case. Thanks to the new components added to the case back, the bracelet can be perfectly curved at all times, ensuring that the watch has a more ergonomic shape for the forearm. The track is like everywhere in daily life. Even the slightest discomfort can be a hindrance to rapid decision-making, and this may be the key to success.
For Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston. For Martin, it doesn’t stop at being perfect. Although many innovative designs have been satisfactory to people, the R & D team of the AMVOX7 Chronograph has miraculously created this system, which allows the wearer to instantly change the bracelet according to his mood and needs. ——The metal bracelet is the best companion for outdoor adventure activities, while the leather strap shows extraordinary taste and perfectly integrates with various elegant occasions.
These qualities are derived from a movement that is beyond imagination and gorgeous in appearance. In this regard, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 756 self-winding mechanical movement is also appreciated by connoisseurs. Not only does it have a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and a power reserve of up to 65 hours, it is also outstanding in terms of ruggedness, reliability and accuracy. When a mechanical work can be with Aston. When Martin’s new Vanquish sports car was comparable, it was destined to impress everyone. This combination requires the joint efforts of both partners. Although it may seem easy for top watch brands and famous car manufacturers to find opportunities for cooperation, cooperation that lacks common values cannot last. Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston. After eight years of cooperation, Martin’s cooperation has entered an unprecedented stage of development. This collaboration has also spawned a number of outstanding masterpieces of major advancements in the field of fusion technology. The secret of this success comes from the shared vision of the future for both parties and the creative passion that drives each other.
