Guys who like luxury and sportscars also like high-end accessories, and chief among them we like luxury watches! That’s why most of the prestigious car makers partner with renowned watch makers to present their own branded timepiece. Aston Martin has a long history with Jaeger-LeCoultre, they’ve introduced the AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder timepiece two years ago which could lock/unlock the DB9. The new edition of this watch works with DBS and Rapide as well.
This mechanical watch features built-in micro transmitter system. As the driver nears the car, all he need do is press the OPEN position on the watch glass (between eight and nine o’clock) in order to unlock the car, whereas doing the same thing on the CLOSE position between three and four o’clock will lock the vehicle. How cool is that!
By pressing simultaneously on the “OPEN” and “CLOSE” rectangles, the watch emits a signal recognised by the car as a “FIND ME” function: the headlamps light up for several seconds, without unlocking the car, so as to enable the owner to find the car at a glance.
In-cased in grade five titanium, the black dial of the AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder is adorned with a grille-type motif and bears rhodium-plated metallic numerals coated in the centre with a luminescent black substance. The DB9 logo, which is gilded as are the hands and hour-markers, appears to be floating in the centre in a window revealing the ruthenium mainplate and bridges of the exquisitely refined movement.
The AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder watch is available to order now from the Aston Martin dealership network priced at: UK: £12,426, EU: €15,833, US: $24,400 exclusive of local taxes and customs & duties charges.
