AMVOX7 Chronograph: new 2012 end of the partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin
Concluded long-term partnership between Replica Watches UK
and Aston Martin famous in 2012 its eighth anniversary with the presentation of the AMVOX7 Chronograph (44 mm titanium grade 5 case), the first vertical-trigger chronograph with a display of radial power reserve.
AMVOX 2012 is a chrono. But by any chrono...
AMVOX7 Chronograph is proposed this year in a new case with the more ergonomic.
This new creation "attests to the pioneering spirit of an alliance dedicated to the aesthetic and technical innovation inspired by the prestigious British car manufacturer» provides the watchmaking firm in its press release.
Before any detailed review, this chrono immediately catches the eye by the pattern that adorns its dial and the drawing by the vent grille of the Vanquish, the new model unveiled by Aston Martin in June.
However, this obvious relationship served as canvas for a formal research in accordance with the technical characteristics of Replica watches Uk. Watchmakers and craftsmen of Jaeger-LeCoultre brought special attention to the realization of the decorations. Their diversity, used on different surfaces, gives a remarkable Visual depth to a black dial with anthracite counters on which the colours white and Red decide by their readability. Moreover, a new function enters the AMVOX line! The display of radial power reserve. This appears in two openings in the upper part of the flange, and part of the black dial.
When reassembling the watch, the Red discs of the market reserve closer as if they wanted to enclose the number 12 so that as uncocking of the barrel, and as they disappear again to reveal little by little the chronograph levers. Once again, this view to the instinctive perception fits in perfect harmony with the sense of immediacy conferred by a sporty drive.
The housing is available in titanium grade 5. The splices of the horns are meticulously polished while ornamentation to the Crown and the trigger is conspicuous by the alternation of blasted, polished and satin-finished surfaces (which is still a lot of work, often delicate, titanium). Finally, the band's stature and the underside of the horns have a delicate horizontal surface smoothness.
In 2005 the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre presented its new chronograph vertical-trigger. He then illustrated the first intuitive technique for measuring short time intervals. Thanks to this system, prior to the start of an event, it is more necessary to keep the finger on the button to operate without delay at the start of the race, as now, a simple gesture on the glass of the watch is enough to cause the failover of the housing on its horizontal axis and immediately start a new measure.
A pressure 12: 00 starts / stops the chronograph mechanism while the same operation performed at the lower end of the dial driver reset the chronograph hands. To avoid any improper handling, a trigger located on the side of the case serves as a control lever: when it is in its central position, all the chronograph functions are carried out according to the above description. Conversely, the lock to the top position, block the chronograph while the lower position allows to activate and trigger the chronograph, but disables the reset.
This intuitive immediacy is not reserved for the mechanical watchmaking, but continues on the displays. On the black skeleton dial, Chronograph counters are made from anthracite grey, two colors that form a perfect contrast with the hands and white numbers. The always useful indicator of market is in the lower position of the dial above the date window located at 6 o'clock.
The housing of the AMVOX almost gets a makeover. It now includes the horns in the form of a one-piece construction which allowed a better integration of the strap for optimum ergonomics. The Crown had a similar evolution: also included in the box, it now offers the double advantage a more comfortable grip and a more precise handling. Also essential are they, however, these characteristics should not look the a capital advance obtained by modifying the shape of the enclosure in order to promote a better positioning on the wrist. Thanks to the addition of a new item on the case back and bracelet keeps every moment with a perfect curve, ensuring the ergonomic seat of the watch on the forearm.
The Chronograph AMVOX7 development team has yet completed this range of innovations with a system which allows to change the bracelet in a jiffy depending on the mood and the necessities of the moment: a bracelet will be the worthy companion of the exploit and outdoor activities while his counterpart leather will highlight the distinction of a watch that blends with happiness to the most elegant circumstances by its sobriety.
