To celebrate the launch of its DBS supercar back in 2007, Aston Martin together with Swiss watch company Jaeger LeCoultre released a chronograph watch with a built in transponder that could unlock the car and fire up its engine.

The two luxury marques have now released a new version of the watch called the “AMVOX2 Chronograph Racing Paris” and this time it will be limited to just 24 units, all of which are available exclusively from the Jaeger LeCoultre boutique in Paris, France.

The watch was developed in order to celebrate the three-year partnership signed between the two firms earlier this year, as well as the 50th anniversary of Aston Martin’s historic win at the 1959 Le Mans 24 Hours race.

This exclusive edition features a black PVD-coated grade 5 titanium case with black and white dial, and black luminescent numerals. The movement bridges and plates are coated with ruthenium, while the chronograph levers in orange eloxed aluminium appear through an opening between 4 and 8 o'clock. The watch is also the only chronograph in the world operating without push pieces thanks to its revolutionary patented vertical-trigger system.
