Cool Watch to Start your Aston Martin

November 9, 2010

We at the Ballast are dapper fellows, but we are more of a Daniel Boone, Evan Williams kind of dapper, but we do love us some straight up high-design. This friends is the pinnacle of uber-rich fashion and technology…behold.

For those sick and tired of living vicariously through James Bond, Aston Martin is giving buyers of the €240,000 ($330,864) DBS coupe the chance to add on a svelte wristwatch that will actually lock, unlock and start their new vehicle. The limited edition Jaeger LeCoultre AMVOX2 chronograph not only boasts “over 200 parts to its casing and an equal number in the watch movement itself,” but it will include a miniaturized form of the “DBS transponder electronics” within the base. Owners of the timepiece will be able to leave the key at home in a vault and crank their new ride up with the touch of a watch, but the convenience will cost you a stiff €25,000 ($34,465) on top of the car’s purchase price.
