IRON MAN 2Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX3: Tony Stark’s wrist armor
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment held the Premiere of their latest production, IRON MAN 2, on Monday, April 26th in Los Angeles.
Jaeger-LeCoultre is prominently featured in the film, with the lead actor wearing several timepieces from the AMVOX, Reverso and Master Grand Tourbillon collections.
In IRON MAN 2, the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero IRON MAN. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Stark is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Stark gorges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.
Tony Stark further expresses his quest for innovation and technology by donning the Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT in Platinum, Master Grand Tourbillon 1833 and Reverso Grande 985. “Jaeger-LeCoultre is thrilled to have our timepieces showcased on the wonderful character of Tony Stark played by the phenomenal actor Robert Downey Jr.” said Jaeger-LeCoultre CEO Jérôme Lambert. “We have no doubt that the film will be a fantastic success.”
AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT: horology meets high technology
Recognizable by its unique design, incarnating the essence of legendary sports car brand Aston Martin and Jaeger-LeCoultre, AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT is a technical masterpiece of the very highest order of watchmaking.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 988 combines the precision of the tourbillon with two complementary functions: a dual time-zone display and a date indicated by a hand that makes a big leap between the 31st of the month and the 1st of the following month, so as to never obstruct the view of the spinning tourbillon. The open worked dial provides a clear view of the bridges and main plate, clothed in titanium in harmony with the finest watchmaking traditions. Going further still on the quest for excellence and meaningful innovation, the case of the AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT is the first ceramic case ever made by the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre.
