    The Amvox1 Alarm series of watches was created to commemorate the partnership between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin. The design of its dial layout resembles those of the old speedometers, a reference to Aston Martin's dashboard counters.

    The Amvox1 R-Alarm model was made in a limited series of 500 examples in titanium and is distinguished by the British Racing Green coloured dial and Kevlar strap.
