Fellows Auctioneers have put a £7,000-£10,000 estimation on a unique Jaeger-LeCoultre created through a collaboration with Aston Martin.

The limited edition gentleman’s platinum AMVOX 1 R-Alarm wrist watch will feature in Fellows’ upcoming watch sale on January 29.

The platinum timepiece is number 67 of 150 ever created, and has the classic Aston Martin brand logo engraved on the case.

The history behind the watch shows how the first editions of the AMVOX watches were announced in 2006 following the release of the newest Aston Martin Vanquish.

Coming from a combination of Aston Martin and Memovox, the AMVOX is a range of alarm timepieces released by Jaeger-LeCoultre.

The two companies collaborated in Paris following a motor show and elements of the watch were then designed to mirror Aston Martin cars, like the watch straps which were made of the same leather used in the interior of the Aston Martin Vanquish S.

Laura Bishop, watch manager at Fellows Auctioneers, says she is excited to see it go under the hammer.

She explained: “This is one of the coolest watches we have ever had up for auction. Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin managed to design a brilliant range of watches which perfectly combined the functional, admirable timepiece with the beautiful luxury sport cars which so many love.”

Adding: “The watch is like a gadget itself, and it will surely entice all watch lovers in our upcoming sale on January 29th. With Aston Martin’s headquarters being in Gaydon, it adds a nice local touch to the story too.”

The watch sale is now available to view online and in person in Birmingham on January 26 between 11am – 4pm, January 28 between 10am – 4pm and on January 29 between 8.30am – 11am.
