Posted in Watches with tags , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2013 by chronoshieldwatches

Good day and Happy New Year watch world. I know that’s a little late. I’ve been away for a while. It seems 2013 has already produced an explosion of innovation, ingenuity and down right coolness when it comes to men’s watches. Let’s tally it all up. Jaeger LeCoultre has a new Deep Sea Chronograph Cermet. Kobold Watch Co. has gone on a spiritual journey & produced the Himalaya Deity Edition. IWC has fused analog & digital into one watch with the Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month timepiece. Luminox continues to soldier on with the Nav SPC( Navigation Specialist), a new model from their RECON series along with the Steel Color Mark Chronograph 3180 series.I’m excited to see what else 2013 has in store in the world of horology.

Aston Martin and Jaeger-Le Coultre have teamed up to produce the AMVOX7 Chronograph. This time piece is inspired by the Aston Martin Vanquish. Along with its exquisite craftmanship, the AMVOX7 has chronograph functions with hidden buttons. To activate the chronograph you have to press the watches crystal at the 12 o’clock position. To reset the chronograph, just touch the 6 o’clock spot on the crystal. This is called the vertical trigger.  Kind of 007-ish. Although Jaeger-Le Coultre is not associated with the Bond franchise, the Aston Martin certainly is.
