A watch only for Aston Martin owners

Get awestruck  with the  Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 Transponder watch has the ability to lock and unlock your Aston Martin from a distance. It can also turn on the headlights to make it easier to find the car. It offers the best of two diametrically opposing worlds and proves that no challenge is insurmountable for the manufacture of this magnificent watch brand. This is the brands latest result of its partnership with British sports car marque Aston Martin which, in 2006 let to this astounding horological innovation.
 
 
The major difference between the 2014 version of this timepiece and the original 2006 model lies in its remote lock/unlock function controlling the doors of an Aston Martin. For the new 2014 AMVOX2 Transponder, Jaeger-LeCoultre has integrated the remote lock/unlock function which enables the wearer to control the doors of their Aston Martin within the watch case. It can be indeed recalled that there were already certain AMVOX watches equipped with this 
function since Jaeger-LeCoultre had already developed the concept for the AMVOX DBS Transponder, AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder and AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder. However, these versions were thus named because they worked exclusively with the Aston Martin DBS, DB9 or Rapide cars – and not, like The new AMVOX2 Transponder is compatible with all current model range Aston Martins. The watch does not however entirely replace the key of the car,  the Keyless Access function serving to start the engine of an Aston Martin by pressing the engine stop/start button still requires the presence of the ignition key.
