James Bond-style watch released by Jaeger-LeCoultre

First published: 15-02-2010

Are you a person who wants both an Aston Martin Rapide and a watch which will open the doors on it? Well, you are in luck, because Jaeger-LeCoultre has hooked up with the famous car firm in order to make it happen.

The Daily Mail noted how James Bond watches usually have all sorts of tricks for up the wearer's sleeve, including "saws, garrottes, lasers and grappling hooks", though noted that even he may be jealous of this offering, working with the double-0 agent's favourite partner car.

According to the newspaper, a £21,850 optional extra to have with the four-door Rapide model of Aston Martin is the titanium and pink-gold AMVOX2 Rapide Transponder from Jaeger, which locks and unlocks car doors with a simple touch of the sapphire-crystal face.

Touching both the lock and unlock areas of the face also makes the car's lights flash, helping the user find it and show off to their friends.

Jaeger-LeCoultre recently featured at Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, a meeting for high-end watch manufacturers in Geneva.
