Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre introduces AMVOX2 Grand Chronograph Limited Edition
inspired by the renowned international racing driver Adrián Fernández, thus reasserting the
strong partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin with this exceptional
watchmaking creation bringing together powerful design and daring performance.
Born in Mexico, Adrián Fernández began his illustrious racing career in 1973, taking part in
motocross competition. By 1981, he was racing in Mexico’s 24 Hours for the first time. In 1983,
he won the Mexican Formula Vee Championship – the first of several titles. His career took a
big leap forward in 1987 when he moved to England to compete in Formula Ford 1600
competition, claiming solid results while working as a mechanic and driving instructor to support
his passion. In 1992, he made his U.S. racing debut capturing the Rookie of the Year title in Indy
Lights competition. Subsequently, he advanced to the top levels of the sport with multiple wins
in the Champ Car (CART), IndyCar and the American Le Mans Series with the Lowe’s
Fernández Racing Team in addition to several appearances in NASCAR competition. In 2010,
he became the official driver for the Aston Martin Works Team.
For Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre, the career of such an acclaimed international racing driver is
consistent with its own ideals, exemplifying individuals who have turned their careers into
concepts of innovation, discipline, hard work, and dedication, all values shared by JaegerLeCoultre.
“The way they work is like in racing”, - said Adrián Fernández following his visit to Manufacture
Jaeger-LeCoultre. “You have engineers, technicians, designers, mechanics, watchmakers to
assemble and tune… They make a team to produce very unique watches. I was very impressed
with their attention to details and dedication.”
The AMVOX2 Grand Chronograph is a watch that stuns technical enthusiasts and watch
connoisseurs with the patented breakthrough: the vertical-trigger chronograph. This ingenious
mechanism makes it possible to start, stop and reset the chronograph simply by pressing on the
sapphire crystal of the watch case, so there is no need for push buttons. A powerful design and
high-tech engineering make it the ultimate driver’s watch.
The AMVOX2 Grand Chronograph is an astounding development based on the historical
Memovox, ensuring a direct link between sports mechanics and superlative watchmaking.
Endowed with the highest accuracy and reliability, this creation by Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre
epitomizes a revolutionary invention and a breathtaking result of a relentless pursuit of aesthetic
and technical excellence.The lucky owner of an AMVOX2 Grand Chronograph Limited Edition watch inspired by Adrián
Fernández will enjoy the privilege of interacting with the watch just like with a car. Just as
effortless as pressing the Engine Start button in an Aston Martin car, the owner of an AMVOX2
Grand Chronograph will be able to trigger and disengage the chronograph function with a
simple and completely instinctive movement: by pressing on the sapphire crystal at the 12
o’clock position. To reset, the driver will simply press on the crystal at the 6 o’clock mark.
Behind this unparalleled ease of use is an exceptional integrated mechanism. Inside, a clever balljoint system allows both the case and bezel to pivot away from the horns of the watch. This
system activates a series of levers that instantly transmit impulses that control the chronograph.
Each lever is mounted on a miniature stainless-steel ball bearing containing seven 0.1mmdiameter balls. A three-position cursor rounds off this revolutionary construction. When
positioned on the side of the case at 9 o’clock, this selection device locks the chronograph so
that it is not triggered, disengaged or reset with the driver’s normal or inadvertent hand or arm
motions.
On the outside, the dial adopts a distinctive 270-degree sweep evocative of dashboard
instruments found in racing cars. At a glance, it is evident that its grey luminiscent numerals and
painstaking detailing could only have been conceived by designers who are truly passionate
about the power and soul of Aston Martin cars. The 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph dials
on white discs stand out clearly on the watch face, recalling that invigorating feeling as the
dashboard counters light up at night. The outer dial ring interrupted between 4 and 8 o’clock to
provide a glimpse of the astonishing lever mechanism that controls the chronograph.
Everything and more than even the most demanding Aston Martin aficionado could have
expected is there: the traditional colors of the famed automobile manufacturer, the circular
graining finish on the dial, the design discreetly hinting at the surface effect of brake discs, the
five DB9-inspired indicators, the impeccable finish and the refined contrast of polished and
matte surfaces, reminiscent of co-existance of polished chromes and sand-moulded engine
parts... All attributes that showcase the fruitful partnership between Aston Martin and JaegerLeCoultre, which dates back to the 1920’s, when Aston Martin automobiles featured dashboard
instruments by the Grande Maison. Aston Martin, like Jaeger-LeCoultre, has endeavored to
preserve unmistakable style and class that, even today, remain in continuous evolution and are
reflected in every hand-made detail.
The AMVOX2 Grand Chronograph Limited Edition watch inspired by Adrián Fernández boasts
a high degree of mechanical genius and superlative qualities, including reliability, sturdiness,
longevity, and precision - the most notable characteristics of all Jaeger-LeCoultre movements,
perfectly aligned with those of Aston Martin. The 65-hour power reserve further increases the
length of time during which the watch can be relied on to function with optimal accuracy. A
complex column-wheel and an extremely sophisticated vertical coupling system guarantee the
precision timing of the chronograph. The adjustment of the balance wheel’s inertia thanks to the
presence of four screws on its rim ensures the setting remains stable in all conditions. Finally, the rotor’s ball-bearing mechanism contains ceramic balls providing the valuable advantage of never
needing lubrication, thus further enhancing the watch’s long-term reliability.
AMVOX2 Grand Chronograph inspired by Adrián Fernández will be crafted in a limited series
of 50 pieces in pink gold. In honor of the origin of the celebrated racing driver, the dial and the
strap of this edition will feature the green, white, and red colors of Mexico’s national flag. The
dial features the initials of Adrián Fernández between 7 and 8 o’clock, and the case-back carries
an engraving with his name.
