Seoul, South Korea – April 4, 2013
In promoting his new “Iron Man3” movie releasing this spring, Actor Robert Downey Jr. playing the leading role was seen wearing a Jaeger- LeCoultre watch last night at a press conference held in South Korea. His AMVOX5 World Chronograph watch is one of 300 limited series edition in ceramics and titanium. Its appearance comprises all the successful signature features of the AMVOX line: luminescent white numerals and hour- markers arranged in the classic 270° sweep; the openworked dial adorned with a gridwork motif evoking the radiator grilles on Aston Martin cars; as well as the time and chronograph functions displayed on round subdials complemented by a movement operating indicator at 6 o’clock above the Jaeger-LeCoultre logo.
The inner bezel ring carries the cities symbolising the 24 time zones and enabling one to immediately check the time anywhere on the globe. In a subtle detail emphasizing the watch’s automobile heritage, London is replaced by Gaydon, the town in Warwickshire where the prestigious Aston Martin cars are painstakingly made.
