Jaeger-LeCoultre New Aston Martin Watches Review


Three new watches have been created to celebrate both the 180th anniversary of Jaeger-LeCoultre and the centennial of Aston Martin. The two brands have been partners for almost a decade, sharing values of innovation, reliability and performance.

The Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm Aston Martin is an alarm watch with the simultaneous display of 24 time zones, and is limited to just 100 pieces. Two interlocking discs at 9 o'clock ensure the alarm time display is simple to read, and the case is fitted with a shock absorber. Described as "a perfect combination of watchmaking expertise and sporty style", the watch is powered by the Calibre 912 in-house automatic movement. It has a black dial with alternating red and white indicators, inspired by the vents on Aston Martin cars.

The AMVOX5 World Chronograph Cermet is a lightweight timepiece that features the simultaneous display of 24 time zones. The case is made of reinforced cermet, giving it incomparable lightness, resistance and stability. Two counters are placed either side of the central chronograph hand to record the minutes and hours since timing started. The watch is equipped with the Calibre 752 in-house automatic movement, and is limited to 500 pieces.

The Master Hometime Aston Martin displays two time zones, with a skeletonised hand indicating the reference time. The time zone system is easily adjusted with the crown and synchronised with the date. The watch is powered by 975H in-house automatic movement, and has a sleek Aston Martin-inspired design with a satin-finish middle strip and black dial.
