By now, we already know that Aston Martin collaborates with only the best. And the one collaboration of Aston Martin that was appreciated to no end by luxury lovers was that with Jaeger-LeCoultre. The two teamed up to create a line of luxury watches known as AMVOX. At this year’s Frankfurt Auto Show, they revealed the latest addition to this range- the Rapide Transponder timepiece. A hi-tech timepiece, it features an integrated transponder circuit that allows the owner to unlock or lock their Aston Martin Rapide simply by pressing the sapphire crystal. The revolutionary timepiece boasts of a vertical trigger system of mechanical levers patented by Jaeger-LeCoultre that allows the chronograph to be started, stopped, and reset by pressing the sapphire crystal. Complementing these functions in the watch is a miniaturized transmitter system that controls access to the Rapide owner.
Update – The world’s most expensive car key comes for £22,000 ($34,000).
A one of a kind timepiece, it will surely appeal to every Aston Martin enthusiast.
