With this watch you won’t lost your car key anymore – it starts your Aston Martin DBS!
Jaeger-LeCoultre’s AMVOX2 DBS Transponder watch has been market as “With this watch you won’t lost your car key anymore – it starts your Aston Martin DBS!”. Wonder what that means?
Well I’m not sure if all Aston Martin DBS owners are Bond series fans. But this watch can only fit them. This is because besides telling the time of their meeting, this special “ultimate watch” can start their DBS. But don’t you worry on others wearing this watch to unlock your car, as this watch is only sold in Aston Martin dealerships, and only they have the authority to “tell” that specific watch to “interact” with the supercar.
Of course, since this watch is for those with a supercar, the quality ought to be ‘supercar’ class too. The case and dial of the AMVOX2 (what an annoying name) are highly detailed, featuring a suspended metallic grey DBS symbol, a discrete Aston Martin emblem on the movement operating indicator and ruthenium grey bridges, satin finish and a black dial that are all similar to the DBS’s instrument panel. The outer dial ring also has an opening that reveals the internal mechanisms of the chronograph and transponder functions, an allusion to the exposed brake calipers visible behind the huge rims of the supercar.
Well unsurprisingly this thing cost $40,750. But I’ve never seen James Bond pester about his gadgets’ cost anyway.
