A limited series of AMVOX2 Racing Chronographs was recently unveiled by Jaeger-LeCoultre. Two versions will be available, a black PVD titanium model with a black dial, as well as a titanium model with a white dial (pictured above). A unique perforated waterproof leather strap will outfit these exclusive sports watches. Both wristwatches feature carbon fiber chronograph counters, adding a nice contrast to the center of the dial.
The new Amvox 2 Racing Chronographs are powered by the JLC 751E caliber movement, housed in a 44 mm case that is 50 meters water-resistant. It beats at 28,800 vph, has 41 jewels, 280 parts and a 65 hour power reserve.
Introduced several years ago, the Amvox watch collection features Jaeger-LeCoultre’s proprietary vertical chronograph trigger system. It allows the wearer to control (start, stop, and reset functions) by pressing the sapphire crystal. For start and stop functions, you must press the edge of the crystal at 12 o’clock. To reset the counters to zero, you must press the edge of the crystal at 6 o’clock. A locking device is used to prevent any accidental activation of the vertical trigger.
The black titanium PVD version is reference number Q192T400 and the titanium version is Q192T430. There are only 100 pieces of each model available worldwide.
