Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX fans will want to book a flight to Paris – and fast! Jaeger-LeCoultre announced today that it is releasing 24 AMVOX2 racing chronographs to be sold exclusively at its Paris boutique. This exclusive edition features a black PVD-coated grade 5 titanium case (44mm diameter) with black and white dial, and black luminescent numerals. The dial decoration revealing the movement reproduces the characteristic gridwork motif of car radiator grills and is framed by a black flange. The movement (Calibre Jaeger-LeCoultre 751E) bridges and plates are coated with ruthenium, while the chronograph levers in orange eloxed aluminium appear through an opening between 4 and 8 o’clock. Power reserve of 65 hours. Price? About $20,000 (13,500 EUR).
According to JLC, the AMVOX is still the only chronograph operating without push pieces thanks to its revolutionary patented vertical-trigger system (see our prior coverage of the AMVOX and the beautiful Aston Martin Rapide here).
Thanks to my friend at JLC for these excellent “in person” pictures – must be nice to get the first look at these in the metal!
