Unveiled in 2013 in association with revered British car manufacture Austin Martin, the Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm Aston Martin watch by Jaeger-LeCoultre boasts special features like world time display and alarm function that are indispensable to pilots and globe trotters.
Its innovative world-time display combines playfulness with absolute clarity – since it is composed of two juxtaposed discs appearing through a large window at 9 o’clock: the first is devoted to hours running from 1 to 12, and the second to quarter-hours.
The Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm Aston Martin watch is powered by the automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 912 featuring a blend of reliability and a sporting nature stemming from its ability to face up to the most extreme conditions. Witness the compression key that further enhances the crown’s resistance to water and dust by over compressing one of the four water-resistance gaskets; along with a sophisticated shock-absorbing case guaranteeing absolute precision in all circumstances. The splendid black dial bearing alternating red and white indications is adorned with a surface treatment evoking the grill on Aston Martin cars.
The logo created by the British manufacturer to celebrate its centenary is engraved on the caseback. It also adorns the special presentation box equipped with a dedicated compartment to house a second strap supplied with the watch. Wearers can thus switch from alligator leather to rubber in one smooth move and thus secure firmly to their wrist this generous 46.3 mm diameter titanium and stainless steel watch designed for experienced drivers.
