Luxury ticker key to 007’s roadster

We’ve all seen expensive watches before. They’re advertised by celebrities in high profile magazines and cost at least one arm and two legs (but hey, you still get a receipt). Think Tag Hauer, Breitling, Rolex and Omega, to name a few.

Well now there’s one more to add to that list, but it has an extra trick up its sleeve, so to speak.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder isn’t like any watch you’ve seen before. Oh sure, it has exquisite time-telling ability encased in grade 5 titanium and satin-brushed 18-carat pink gold. It even has an hour, minute, and second hand. And numbers, it has them too.

Most importantly, though, the AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder has a built-in micro-transmitter for unlocking an Aston Martin DBS.

Yes, you read that right: this watch is also the key to a very expensive car.

And since the car costs just under half a million used, we’re thinking you won’t care too much that the Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 watch-key costs almost $40,000 locally.
