Jacques Amvox2 Transponder Forwarding Watch

On the occasion of the 2014 Beijing Auto Show, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched the new AMVOX2 Transponder. The new watch is another masterpiece developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin. The clever combination of mechanical technology and watch technology has once again demonstrated the spirit of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s continuous innovation and surpassing.

 The collaboration between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin began in 2006. When the first AMVOX Chronograph was introduced, Jaeger-LeCoultre created an unprecedented epoch-making invention in the history of horology-the vertical start chronograph system. This is an ingenious design. Just tap the watch’s sapphire crystal to start, stop or reset it. The button on the right side of the case of a traditional chronograph watch disappears, replaced by a latch on the left side of the case that controls the crystal mirror. When locked, the latch is in the middle position; when opened, the latch can move up and down. You can start or stop the timekeeping function by lightly pressing the 12 o’clock position on the surface. When returning to zero, you can just press the 6 o’clock position on the surface. The operation of this chronograph watch is very simple. The wearer can easily control the chronograph function with a single touch, just as you effortlessly start the car’s engine.

 This simple and clever operation is based on Jaeger-LeCoultre’s original mechanism, using a delicate spherical coupling on the inner edge of the case, and using the principle of leverage to convert the pressure on the surface of the crystal into precise pulses to control the stopwatch timing . Each lever in this technology is connected to a mini stainless steel bearing, which contains 7 balls with a diameter of 0.1 mm. The Jaeger-LeCoultre 751E caliber is doing its best here, with a power reserve of up to 65 hours, allowing the watch to run longer with optimized precision. Excellent gear column and advanced vertical escapement ensure ultra-precise chronograph performance. There are four screws for adjusting the inertia on the outer ring of the balance wheel, which effectively enhance the stability of the adjustment function. Ceramic dial bearings with automatic dial bearings have the advantage of not requiring lubrication, so that all wrist movements can be converted into watch energy, which greatly improves the long-term reliability of the watch.

 The main difference between the 2014 Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new AMVOX2 Transponder and the 2006 AMVOX Chronograph is the addition of the ability to remotely lock and unlock Aston Martin sports cars, which can be controlled by simply tapping the watch Sports car door. The AMVOX DBS Transponder watch, AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder watch and AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder watch previously launched by Jaeger-LeCoultre all have the function of locking and unlocking the car, but only for models corresponding to the watch name. And Jaeger-LeCoultre’s new AMVOX2 Transponder is compatible with all existing Aston Martin models.

 Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 Transponder can lock, unlock Aston Martin sports cars from a certain distance, or turn on the lights to make it easier for owners to find, and this feature is applicable to all existing Aston Martin models . Pressing the sapphire crystal of the watch lightly is like pressing the start button of a sports car, which is also made of sapphire crystal, to start the engine. It is smooth and textured. It is worth noting that although the AMVOX2 Transponder has such advanced and convenient functions, it cannot completely replace the car key. The keyless connection function of the engine using the start button still requires the existence of an ignition key.

 The perfect signal transmission between the car and the watch is achieved by a miniature transponder placed between the double-layered case back of the watch, and the line and the transmitter antenna can be clearly seen between 4:00 and 8:00. The antenna is metal-coated and integrated with the inner wall of the sapphire crystal to reduce the energy consumption. Jaeger-LeCoultre watchmakers perfectly combine the technical characteristics with the exterior design. They also use metal coating technology to mount the reactors labeled “Open” and “Close” inside the mirror, so that the door can be unlocked or opened with a light touch Delicate function of the lamp.

 The Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 Transponder completes the original concept. On the one hand, it continues to use the vertical start chronograph system with the function of manipulating the chronograph by pressing the surface lightly. The stable signal transmission between sports cars and watches.

 Each Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece has a unique design, and the AMVOX2 Transponder is no exception. This watch has a small window at 6 o’clock where you can see the Aston Martin logo. When the 751E movement starts ticking, the logo in the small window will rotate around the axis at a rate of once a minute. If it no longer rotates, the watch has stopped working.

Jacques Participated In Supporting ’12 Years A Slave’ Movie

British director and writer Andrea Arnold took the initiative to become its first ever filmmaker on October 3. This film was released on Tuesday in major theaters in New York. Jaeger-LeCoultre Attended with the partner Film Association for many years to show support for the film. ’12 YEARS A SLAVE’ film director Steve McQueen pays tribute to Ralph Fiennes at the evening party, a film based on a true story written by John Ridley , Tells the story of a black man abducted and sold to New York as a slave. The actors and actresses of the movie broke through the gap that evening and exchanged in a Q & A way.

   On October 9, Jaeger-LeCoultre and the Film Lincoln Center Association participated in a commemoration of unique talents and professional actor and director Ralph Fiennes. The tribute party traced his career, including ‘Schindler’s List, ‘British Patient’, etc. For more brand news, stay tuned for Watch House.

Dior Chiffre Rouge M01 Watch

Dior, who is good at detailing, has designed a series of watches with front oscillating weight, supporting the supporting role as the protagonist. Such an imaginative approach must be related to the romantic brand style. Those who have seen Dior’s past works are not hard to find that Dior’s watches have always been neither lacking in romantic themes nor tasteful design, nor will they be subject to various professional technologies and hand-made craftsmanship.
Unlike other watches with a front rotor, Dior Chiffre Rouge M01 does not have much decoration. I saw two sets of scales on the silver-white rotor, the larger one is from 15 to 45 minutes, A small set of 0 to 15 scales is in the middle position, which is conspicuously modified by red, and becomes a bright spot on the surface of the main color of black and white. The black ceramic bezel is printed with Arabic hour numerals. The stainless steel case diameter is 39 mm. It is not exaggerated and really tough. The asymmetrical lugs reflect Dior’s desire to get rid of the traditional idea of ​​watch making. A touch of freshness emerged from the bezel.
Basic data
Stainless steel case, 39 mm diameter, self-winding movement, limited to 200 pieces
The automatic movement can use the movement of the wearer’s arm to drive the metal oscillating weight in the system to continuously rotate, thereby pushing the inner lever and gear to wind the mainspring. When you move, the pendulum moves, and the pointer moves forward. This eliminates the small device that people use to wind up the watch with their hands. Since its appearance, most of them have been hiding behind the watch, turning around at the bottom of the watch, and winding the watch silently, it has become full of neglect. Supporting role.
