Jackson And Aston Martin Launch Three New Watches

Jaeger-LeCoultre and British car manufacturer Aston Martin have teamed up to create three new watches. These two iconic brands of fine watchmaking and sports car manufacturing have contributed to the development of their respective fields of excellence. So far, the two sides have cooperated for nearly ten years, repeatedly achieving amazing technological innovations, and creating watch masterpieces that show the common values ​​of two outstanding brands. In 2013, the 180th anniversary of the founding of the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand and the century-old creation of the legendary British car manufacturer, three new watches were born, symbolizing another historic leap under the cooperation of two avant-garde brands.

 Master Compressor Extreme W-Alarm Aston Martin
 Aston Martin Masters

 This is the beloved watch that riders dream of, with all the essential qualities that global travelers expect. At a glance, the world time display gives you a panoramic view of the time in all time zones around the world. As we all know, people can easily confuse jet lag on long trips across different time zones of the world. The practical alarm function not only has extremely easy-to-read time indicators, but also has a loud and powerful tone. This revolutionary display is fun, clear and easy to read without any delays at the start of the car race. The world time display consists of two indicator dials juxtaposed in a large window at 9 o’clock, showing 1 to 12 hours and quarter clocks, respectively.

 Equipped with the Jaeger-LeCoultre 912 automatic movement, it has the characteristics of a sports watch with reliability and resistance to various extreme environments. For example, compressing one of the four gaskets and compressing the screw can enhance the crown’s water and dust resistance. The improved shock absorption system ensures the extreme precision of the watch in any environment. The magnificent black dial sets off the red and white hands and display function. The surface finishing effect borrows from the pattern on the radiator rail of Aston Martin.

 To celebrate the centenary of British carmaker Aston Martin, the watch’s caseback is engraved with its brand logo. The logo is also printed on the watch’s special box, and there is a special compartment in the box for the second strap that comes with the watch. With a simple operation, you can change the crocodile leather and rubber strap, and re-wear the magnificent 46.3mm titanium and stainless steel case on the wrist of the battle-hardened rider.

 Master Hometime Aston Martin

 Aston Martin’s new collection welcomes Jaeger-LeCoultre’s signature innovation: Master Hometime Aston Martin. The Jaeger-LeCoultre dual time zone series draws on the aerodynamic line design of Aston Martin sports cars and the top innovative technology that has made the brand’s century-old racing history worthy of a milestone in the art of watchmaking in the early 21st century. Simple use, combined with exquisite design, is the secret of the success of this watch. Master Hometime Aston Martin The black dial of the Aston Martin dual time zone series is clear and unforgettable, and it has become a masterpiece of the two major brands. The finely-brushed lugs extend forward along the 40-mm-diameter stainless steel case, highlighting the watch’s sporty style.

 Various indicator functions also adopt three iconic colors of black, white, and red, which attract the attention and immediately lock the required information. As shown with reference to time, the hollowed-out hand with a vermilion tip indicates the time of residence, which is easy to read. To avoid misreading the time on the other side of the world, this feature combines a 24-hour chronograph above the dial and a chronograph second hand below the dial. After reaching the destination, adjust the time display by jumping forward or backward by one hour to display the destination time. After returning from the trip, the aircraft can be adjusted in the opposite direction as soon as the plane is over, and the two hour hands immediately overlap. At a glance, the hour hand seems to be a simple single time zone watch until it embarks on a long journey again. The Master Hometime Aston Martin watch showcases the simple and elegant design style, equipped with Jaeger-LeCoultre 975H automatic winding movement, highlighting the common advantages of the two major brands: innovation, reliability and excellent performance. At the same time, at 3 o’clock, the logos of the two major brands are engraved.

 AMVOX5 World Chronograph Cermet

 The AMVOX5 World Chronograph Cermet has outstanding mechanical structure and dial layout, ensuring excellent legibility and all information at a glance. The central chronograph hands are paired with two chronographs on either side of the vertical center axis to indicate precisely the hours and minutes since the start of the chronograph. The operation indicator below the dial reflects the operation status of the watch, and the convenience is the date display window. The outer ring of the dial is a city dial that displays the world time, and the time in each time zone can be read at the same time. The central hour, minute and chronograph seconds hands rotate at their respective speeds. Aston Martin’s classic colors—black, dark gray, white, and red—make up bright colors that convey rich information perfectly and smoothly. This is a professional timepiece, specially designed for high performance: equipped with Jaeger-LeCoultre 752 self-winding movement with a vibration frequency of 28,800 times per hour; a 44mm case with a water resistance of 50 meters and a revolutionary fiber reinforced metal Made of ceramic.

Fiber reinforced cermet

 Fiber-reinforced cermet is the latest achievement of racing high-speed engine research and development center, showing unparalleled advantages such as excellent performance, strong shock resistance, and light texture. Jaeger-LeCoultre has always strived for innovation and has decided to use this cutting-edge technology exclusively to create extraordinary timepieces. However, in order to realize this bold vision, the design and manufacturing process of the case must be completely subverted. This watch bears unprecedented expectations, no effort can be overstated.

 This revolutionary state-of-the-art technology is made of aluminum fiber reinforced with ceramic particles and covered with a 40 micron thick ceramic protective layer.

 First, powdery crystals are mixed with oxygen-enriched gas and air fuel to thermally react to form ceramic particles. After that, the mixture was burned at a high temperature of 2500 degrees Celsius. Since the temperature was higher than the melting point of alumina, the alumina crystals became spherical water droplets, and then quickly cooled to normal temperature to condense into solid particles.

 Next, the ceramic particles and the aluminum powder are mixed and vacuum-heated at a high temperature of 600 degrees to prevent oxidation. Once this step is completed, the aluminum and ceramic particles are bonded to form the base material for cutting and processing. Subsequently, the ceramic is covered by an electrochemical process to form a ceramic protective layer. This process ensures that the base material is perfectly integrated with the protective layer.
This year, two outstanding avant-garde brands celebrated their birthdays and jointly launched three cutting-edge technological innovation watches, allowing the two to work closely together for a long-term success.
