Aston Martin introduces the AMVOX2 DBS Transponder

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Gaydon – Aston Martin in conjunction with its watch partner Jaeger LeCoultre, has introduced the AMVOX2 DBS Transponder, the first watch developed with the ability to control access into a luxury sports car.

The watch is a fusion of traditional watchmaking expertise and high-tech engineering. Crafted exclusively for owners of the Aston Martin DBS. By integrating the transponder circuit into the body of the watch, Jaeger-LeCoultre has created a timepiece that not only functions as a fine chronograph but as a key.

Only Aston Martin dealerships will be able to authorise the timepiece to ‘read’ and communicate with the owner’s specific DBS, ensuring that security and privacy are maintained at all times.

A powerful design inspired by cutting-edge engineering

The case and dial of the AMVOX2 DBS Transponder featurines 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 all evoke 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 callipers visible behind the sporting wheel rims of the DBS car.

Dr Ulrich Bez, Chief Executive Officer of Aston Martin said: “This is the definitive expression of the partnership between Aston Martin and Jaeger-LeCoultre, I’m delighted that we have been able to premiere this technology in such an elegant solution. It is the first time horology and automotive engineering have been combined in this way.”
