Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin have teamed up to create a special edition timepiece that will have fans of the iconic auto brand racing to pick one up.

Taking its inspirations from Aston Martin’s legendary racing program, the AMVOX5 LMP1 boasts all the precision and endurance standards racing drivers count on, while its mechanical and aesthetic features will appeal to racing enthusiasts. It features a 41-jewel Caliber 752 movement with chronograph and GMT functions, and comes with a date window and 65-hour power reserve. This timepiece is also self-winding and has a pink gold oscillating weight.

Its precision movement is encased in 44-milimeter ceramic-titanium, and it’s strapped to your wrist with a calfskin and Cordura strap that sports the Aston Martin team’s blue and orange livery. There will only be 250 AMVOX5 LMP1 being issued, and although there’s no word on a price, we’re sure that this watch will be sold out quickly.
