Jaeger-LeCoultre has presented the new AMVOX2 Transponder, a timepiece that embodies a blend of high-end mechanics and artful electronics. The watch is the result of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s latest partnership with British sports marque Aston Martin.
The owners of an AMVOX2 Transponder can use the watch to lock or unlock their Aston Martin from a distance as well as easily locate it by turning on the headlights.
On this timepiece, the traditional push-pieces on the right side of the case are replaced by a lever on the left enabling an instant check as to whether the sapphire crystal watch glass is “active” or not. In the “locked” position, it is blocked in a central, neutral position; while in “unlocked” mode it can be tipped upwards or downwards in relation to a central horizontal axis. The chronograph start, stop and reset functions are activated by pivoting the watch glass towards 12 or 6 o’clock. To start the chronograph, the wearer tilts the glass by pressing the edge of the crystal at 12 o’clock, and stops it by repeating the same move and thus breaking off the current timing operation. Meanwhile, the central seconds hand as well as the 30-minute and 12-hour counters are reset by pressing the edge of the crystal at 6 o’clock.
The whole process is simple, ingenious and intuitive. There is absolutely nothing to distract the wearer of an AMVOX2 when he wants to start the chronograph.
