Jaeger-LeCoultre, the official watch partner of Aston Martin Racing, is launching a new timepiece – the AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder. Owners of DB9 models could pretend that they’re James Bond as they open the doors of the vehicle by pressing on the sapphire crystal of their watch.
According to the press release, the AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder is encased in grade five titanium and its black dial is adorned with a grille-type motif and features rhodium-plated metallic numerals coated in the center with a luminescent black substance.
The DB9 logo, the hands and hour-markers are gilded. They seem to be floating in the center in a window showing the “ruthenium mainplate and bridges of the exquisitely refined movement.” The AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder is the third generation of watches released by the partnership.
The first was the DBS Transponder, which was launched globally two years ago. This was the first mechanical watch that could control the access to a luxury sports car.
It used a built-in micro transmitter system to lock and unlock the Aston Martin DBS.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.
