Designed by Jaeger-LeCoultre, the official watch partner of Aston Martin Racing, the DB9 Transponder is striking, as it’s encased in grade five titanium. Its black dial is adorned with a grille-type motif and its rhodium-plated metallic numerals found in the center of the watch are coated with black luminescent.
The coolest function of this watch has to be the fact that is comes an integrated transponder circuit. This allows you to unlock or lock your Aston Martin DB9 by pressing the watch’s sapphire crystal. Owners can also use the Open and Close zones to activate a Find Me function. This illuminates the car’s headlamps for several seconds so you can find your car easily.
Also featured on the timepiece are the DB9 logo, the hands and hour-markers, all which are gilded. It almost looks like the float in the center, while its window shows the “ruthenium mainplate and bridges of the exquisitely refined movement.”
The DB9 is the third generation of watches released by Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin. The DBS Transponder was the first to hit the market globally, about two years ago, and was also the first mechanical watch that could control access to a luxury sports car.
The AMVOX2 DB9 Transponder watch is available to order now from the Aston Martin and costs $24,400 U.S. You can purchase it at your Aston Martin dealership.
