Watch story: . Successfully handling a powerful 12-cylinder Aston Martin Vantage on the racetrack requires absolute precision and know-how. Making a timepiece to reflect this feeling is no less of a feat.The preface to this chapter in horological history was written in the 1920s when, thanks to World War I, LeCoultre & Cie in cooperation with Edmond Jaeger began manufacturing counters and dashboard instruments for the most prestigious automobiles of the time – including the renowned 1.5-liter Aston Martin LM, which was a regular winner in international motor racing of the 1930s and whose instruments were simply signed “Jaeger.”
The Amvox 2 was an automatic chronograph officially called Chronograph Concept conceived by engineer Francis Cretin. Its Caliber 751B was outfitted with a vertical trigger mechanism that seemed to belong more to the future than the year in which it appeared. At the time, Cretin was so enthusiastic about the invention that it took him only five months to produce a prototype, one he called “an automotive approach to the watchmaking field.”
The model we offer is a new version produced between 2010 and 2016.
