Why We Love it

Complicated watches are micro-engineering miracles.

Imagine the technical facility and savoir faire required to craft something that displays multiple time zones, or tracks the leap years, or counts up to 12 hours…and that can fit on your wrist? What about something that does several of these sophisticated timekeeping jobs simultaneously?

That’s the story of the Amvox 5 World Chronograph Cermet Limited Edition from La Grand Maison itself, Jaeger-LeCoultre. A special collaboration with Aston Martin, it’s produced in high-tech cermet, a material made of an aluminum core with ceramic particles that’s covered in a protective ceramic coating 40 microns thick. Developed for race car engines, cermet couldn't be more appropriate for an automotive-themed watch.

This particular Amvox 5 World Chronograph Cermet Limited Edition is housed in a 44mm black cermet and titanium case with a sapphire crystal, dual signed, grey ceramic and rubber crowns, a ceramic and rubber ‘doorstop’ pusher, and a smooth bezel. It features a luminous, matte black dial with an outer, rotating city bezel in black and white, applied, stylized ‘Arabic’ indices, a matching, lumed handset, a dual-register chronograph, and a date window at 6 o’clock.

Using the watch’s secondary crown, one can easily adjust the automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 752/1 to track a desired second time zone, while the ‘doorstop’ pusher can be used to measure elapsed time up to 12 hours. With its signed, black leather and nylon strap with red side-stitching, black ceramic pin and stainless steel deployant clasp, the Amvox 5 World Chronograph is an excellent choice for the busy traveler on the move. But don’t take our word for it…

Try it out for yourself!

Brand Story

+
Few watchmaking concerns are as storied as Jaeger-LeCoultre. Though the maison is not technically a member of the “Holy Trinity” of Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and Vacheron Constantin, one could easily make the argument that it should be: After all, it was JLC that supplied movements to Patek from the beginning of the 20th century through the early 30s.

Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoutlre in Le Sentier, Switzerland, the firm became the Jaeger-LeCoultre we know today when it merged with Parisian watchmaker Edmond Jaeger’s business in 1937. The two horological concerns collaborated on numerous projects before cementing their partnership, the most important of which was no doubt the Reverso. A sport watch with a reversible case, this ingenious timepiece was designed to offer protection to the watch dial — when engaged in sport or otherwise dangerous activity, the wearer would simply flip the case over, exposing its back to the world, rather than the vulnerable crystal.

But the Reverso is far from the only significant timepiece brought to market by JLC: The firm also produced the world’s thinnest pocket watch in 1907, powered by the Caliber 145. In 1929, the maison released the Caliber 101, still today the smallest mechanical movement. (Queen Elizabeth II wore a Caliber 101-equipped wristwatch to her coronation in 1953.) And perhaps no other watchmaker is world-renowned for their production of a clock in the way that JLC is famous for the Atmos. Invented by Jean-Léon Reutter, it’s powered by miniscule changes in atmospheric pressure — Edmon Jaeger acquired the patent and licensed it beginning in 1936. The Atmos is still produced in numerous forms today, and remains the Swiss government’s foremost diplomatic gift.

From classic, near-centuries old designs like the Reverso and the Atmos to modern über-complications such as the brilliant Master Gyrotourbillon, Jaeger-LeCoultre remains on the cutting edge of horological technology nearly two centuries after its founding.
