The highly popular Iron Man movies have also been making headliness in the world of luxury timepieces with the wristwatch choices for lead actor Robert Downey Jr.character, Tony Stark. In the first movie, Iron Man 1, Downey's character can be seen wearing a rose gold Bvlgari Diagono Retrograde watch. Now, in the just released Iron Man 2 film Downey is sporting the Jaeger-LeCoultre Amvox 3 Tourbillon GMT watch. As far as I'm concerned a far more impressive timepiece that I think better compliments the characters lifestyle and unique abilities. Downey has also been photgraphed wearing the watch at press events leading up to the release.

The Amvox 3 timepiece is crafted from ceramic and platinum 950 and has a case width of 44 millimeters and a thickness of 15.24. The dial and back of the watch are protected by a sapphire crystal case-back which helps assure the watches 50 meter water resistance. The platinum version has the reference number 193K450 and is a limited series of just 300 watches. The dial features a black meshed and openworked in its centre with white luminescent numerals, displaying hours, minutes, seconds by tourbillon, date, GMT and am/pm indicator.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Amvox 3 Tourbillon GMT Watch is powered by the calibre 988 single barrel automatic movement which beats at 28800 Vibrations per hour and contains 35 jewels. It also has a 48 hour power-reserve. The watch is completed by a perforated calfskin leather strap and a double folding buckle the measures 20.0 milimeters. The watch is also available with rose gold accents, as reference number 193C450.
