This $29,500 Jaeger-LeCoultre tells time and unlocks car doors
Your watch tells time? That’s cute. But luxury Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre just made it the equivalent of a phone with a rotary dial.
The 2014 version of the company’s AMVOX2 Transponder is capable of locking and opening the doors of any late-model Aston Martin sports car (previous incarnations of the timepiece only worked with certain models). And there are no big bulky buttons to make it happen, either — just a brilliantly designed multi-function crystal.
As Forbes reports:
Jaeger-LeCoultre … toiled to create a watch with a sapphire crystal that acted as a button. Pressing down on the left side of the crystal opened the car, while pressing down on the right locked it. This was combined with a sliding lever function on the side of the case to operate the chronograph part of the watch. Apparently it was a goal of the project to have the timepiece do as much as possible but have only a crown on the case.
The face of the watch also features an Aston Martin logo that spins and acts as a seconds hand. But the timepiece isn’t just beautiful on the outside — within the 44mm titanium case is a 751E automatic movement with more than 60 hours of reserve power.
Aston Martins, of course, are a favorite of James Bond’s. And for just under $30,000, you too can have a high-tech watch worthy of 007.
