JAEGER LECOULTRE ‘Aston Martin World Chronograph Ceramic’ reviewed

Jaeger-LeCoultre is a brand real watch guys get excited about. Its been around since 1833 and these watch guys (horologists) get excited for a reason. Lets find out why. Previously Enjoyed Watches let me test a Jaeger LeCoultre ‘Amvox 5 Aston Martin World Chronograph Ceramic’. This is a timepiece to get very excited about. I’m taking this piece away for American Thanksgiving and looking forward to using some of its features. Let get to it…

The partnership between Aston Martin and Jaeger LeCoultre began in 2004 and has been extremely successful. Jaeger LeCoultre supports the Aston Martin racing team and the synergy between the two brands has meshed well. The Jaeger LeCoultre Amvox5 Aston Martin World Chronograph Ceramic at Previously Enjoyed Watches was produced in 2011 with an ode to its Aston Martin racing origins. These were limited to 250 ceramic pieces. The LMP1 prototype uses a blue and orange colour which became the inspiration behind the design. This watch design was drastically sportier then others in the two brands partnership.

I don’t know if it means that all watch guys are also car guys? In my case, yes. I love cars and obviously watches and i love Aston Martin. Their super sleek designs create a real sense of elegance and luxury.

Okay, okay… enough about the relationship between the two companies, you get it. Lets talk about the watch. First impression, so lightweight! Incredibly lightweight piece and maybe the lightest watch I’ve ever tried. Interestingly, that was something that was never mentioned when I was researching the watch. I know I talk about it all the time, but how a watch feels when you wear it is important. I totally understand if you have a huge watch that you absolutely love and just wear it out on special occasions. I have watches for this occasion. But its also good to know if the next watch you buy is a watch that can be worn comfortably for a long period of time. When I travel for example, I hate bringing multiple watches. I’m currently visiting family in Florida from California for the holidays. Armen from Previosly Enjoyed Watches suggested I take this one because of the comfort and the ‘world time functions’, allowing me to easily keep track of things back home with the time change. I’m glad I did! Its been super convenient, comfortable and a lot of fun to wear.

I love all the details on this piece. You could literally stare at all the subtleties for hours. This sporty watch will make you feel like your wearing a sports car on your wrist. Super lightweight and fun, this watch would be great for anyone looking for a sporty watch from a legendary watchmaker.
