In the world of fine watches it is definitely the year of the all black design. Jaeger-LeCoultre is no exception introducing the AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT, a nearly all black design crafted from ceramics. The AMVOX3 is the latest watch born from the partnership between Jaeger and Aston Martin, a famed English manufacturer of luxury performance cars. This partnership began in 2005 with the Amvox I produced in both stainless steel and titanium and continued in 2006 with the creation of the AMVOX 2 produced in Platinum, PVD and Titanium. Jaeger-LeCoultre has crafted the AMVOX 3 from high-tech ceramics which is the first time this material has been used by the company. Using ceramic is a natural step for Jaeger as it is becoming a more an more popular material among luxury watch makers because of its many benefits. It has superior scratch-resistance and is a very hard yet light weight material, a little heavier than titanium but much lighter than steel.
The AMVOX3 uses the mechanical automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 988 movement which is hand-crafted and decorated. It is comprised of 323 parts and has 35 jewels. The automatic tourbillon has a carriage made in grade 5 titanium, beveled, hand-drawn and polished, with a ruthenium treatment. It has an upper tourbillon bridge in 4N gilded metal aluminum, and an automobile design AM/PM indicator bridge in black eloxed aluminium. The black dial features a grid work motif inspired by automobile air inlets and has black luminescent numerals. The dial displays hours, minutes and a 2nd time zone as well as an AM/PM indicator linked to reference time, a tourbillon with seconds indication and a calendar with jumping hand. The watch is water resistant to 50 meters and is limited to 300 pieces.
