You must be referring to the ltd series in titanium.

Even the normal one is quite an unusual watch.

The vertical trigger, and locking system...with the parts in red...44mm.

It's not an art piece or anywhere near an Aston Martin even, for the sake of a marketing comparison. However, it is quite an interesting arrangement of the functions and the levers.

JLC pieces from the Master range have never been a platform for aesthetics.

What it lacks is a great dial arrangement, it could do with a more intricate and better finished dial...but that would cost a lot more. The hands too could be a tad more refined. However...that is Jaegar. It must be their DNA.

Since this is a Harry Winston forum,these external and aesthetic elements are important to HWRT. It is part of HWRT DNA to have almost a flawless aesthetic edge in the visible parts, especially the dials. This is also important in many companies with a huge tradition in fine jewelry...like Chopard for eg.

I like the AMVOX in the same way I like the IWC Cal 5000 and its cohorts.
