AMVOX2 CHRONOGRAPH DBS


The latest in the Jaeger-LeCoultre – Aston Martin collection, the AMVOX2 Chronograph DBS mirrors the power, beauty and soul of the Aston Martin DBS. Equipped with the world’s first mechanical chronograph without push buttons, this innovative timepiece also features a stunning mix of contrasting surfaces, together with luminescent numerals and counters that evoke the atmosphere of a night-time drive. The inspired technology behind the AMVOX2 Chronograph DBS has been patented by Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre and utilises a vertical trigger system of mechanical levers, which can be seen through the lower dial opening. These allow the chronograph to be started, stopped and reset simply by pressing on the sapphire crystal. Just like driving an Aston Martin, the operation of an AMVOX2 Chronograph DBS is equally intuitive. The AMVOX2 Chronograph DBS draws inspiration from its predecessor, the AMVOX2 Chronograph Concept, as well as the stunning Aston Martin DBS. Not only does it feature the legendary Aston Martin wings, but the dial openings at 4 and 8 o’clock provide a tantalising glimpse of the sophisticated lever mechanism. The spirit of mutual inspiration between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin is visible elsewhere, too. The luminescent dial and numerals evoke the atmosphere of a nighttime drive in the DBS, a feeling reinforced by the sensual yet rugged touch of the leather strap, itself inspired by driving gloves. The contrasting satin-brushed, polished and matte finishes call to mind the mix of surfaces in the DBS, from the polished chrome featured on the outside of the car to the sand-cast engine parts within. Even the crown of the AMVOX2 Chronograph DBS resembles the Aston Martin fuel-filler cap.

Developed and constructed in-house at Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre, the AMVOX2 Chronograph DBS is one of the most complex timepieces in the world: • The

chronograph comprises an intricate and ingenious puzzle of over 100 components housed in a case consisting of two parts: the internal pivoting case and the base bracket or ‘chassis’.

The case-back is beautifully engraved with the Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin logos

• The

inner case pivots on its ‘chassis’ to activate the set of levers. The case is integrated into the base via a ball-and-socket joint: the four upper recesses in the case fit snugly against the spherical side of the lugs.

• This

spherical integration ensures reliable construction: since no gap is created when the inner case pivots, no dust can intrude into the mechanism.

• In

all, including the dial and movement, the AMVOX2 Chronograph DBS comprises over 400 parts.

• The

movement is Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre Chronograph Caliber 751E Variable-inertia balance with high frequency of 28,800 vph and automatic winding with ceramic ball bearings as well as a column-wheel, vertical coupling clutch. 65-hour power reserve ensured by two barrels.

• The

chronograph is tested for 1,000 hours and water-resistant to 50 metres.
