Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX5 World Chronograph Cermet Limited Edition

Through the conception of its mechanism and the arrangement of the dial indications, the AMVOX5 World Chronograph Cermet guarantees absolute readability and enables at-a-glance reading of the entire range of information. The central chronograph hand is associated with two counters on either side of the vertical axis in order to count off the minutes and hours elapsed since the start of the measurement. The lower part of the dial is devoted to the operating indicator that testifies to the smooth running of the watch and comprises the date aperture appearing at its base.

The inner bezel ring bears the city disc for the world time display enabling instant readings for each time zone. The dial centre is occupied by the hours and minutes hands along with the above-mentioned chronograph seconds hand. This wealth of information is perfectly legible thanks to the clear hierarchical arrangement of the classic Aston Martin colours: black, anthracite, white and red. This is a professional instrument designed to achieve high performance, as too is the automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 752. Beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the movement is housed within a 44 mm-diameter case that is water-resistant to 5 bar and made from a revolutionary material, reinforced cermet.

Recently developed by research labs for high-powered race-car engines, reinforced cermet boasts a number of decisive advantages by combining performance and shock resistance with extraordinary lightness. As ever in the vanguard of innovation, Jaeger-LeCoultre has secured exclusive use of this high-tech avant-garde material in the watchmaking field. This revolutionary high-tech material is composed of an aluminium core and ceramic particles, covered with a 40 micron-thick protective ceramic coating.
