Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX7 Watch Review


To celebrate the eighth anniversary of its partnership with Aston Martin, Jaeger-LeCoultre has presented the AMVOX7 - the first vertical-trigger chronograph with a power reserve display.

"As the partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin enters its eighth year, it is stronger than ever," the brand says. "This is a collaboration that has already given birth to exceptional creations representing major advances in the technical domain. The secret of this continued success lies exclusively in a shared vision based on a mutual passion for innovation."

The Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX7 Chronograph has a 44 mm titanium case, and an openworked dial with a motif inspired by the radiator grille of the Aston Martin Vanquish. 
A radial power reserve display appears on either side of the dial, through two apertures in the upper part of the inner bezel ring. When the watch is wound, the red power reserve discs draw closer to 12 o'clock. As the barrel winds down, the discs gradually move back to reveal the chronograph levers.

The vertical-trigger chronograph mechanism was first introduced by Jaeger-LeCoultre in 2005 and is suited to measuring short time intervals. Pressing the dial at 12 o'clock will pivot the case on its horizontal axis to start or stop the chronograph; pressing at 6 o'clock will reset the chronograph hands.

The watch has a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, and the case back features an engraving of the Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin logos. It is equipped with Jaeger-LeCoultre 756 automatic mechanical calibre, with a power reserve of 65 hours.
