A groundbreaking initiative, both inside and outside
The AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT tourbillon time watch perfectly balances eye-catching appearance and high-quality connotation. In order to ensure that the ceramic case of the AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT watch can fully meet the demanding quality of a high-end watch, the Jaeger-LeCoultre watch factory in Vall & eacute; e de Joux in Switzerland especially uses advanced production technology. First, zirconia and yttrium metal are melted into a block with high cohesion under high temperature and high pressure environment up to 2000 degrees Celsius, and in order to ensure uniform material, it must be used
Radiation is used to detect the presence of voids, and then the procedure of grinding the case is performed. This process must be completed by CNC 5-axis technology in order to create an AMVOX case with a finely cut face. In the final grinding and polishing process, special processing equipment equipped with diamond crystals and diamond sand must also be used. Therefore, the ceramic material used by Jaeger-LeCoultre definitely has excellent characteristics of anti-wear and non-deterioration. Its light weight is second only to titanium, and it is several times lighter than stainless steel, but it has more excellent hardness.
The AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT tourbillon timepiece is equipped with a high-performance 988C movement with a patented rotor design.
The AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT tourbillon timepiece is like a super sports car with a high-performance engine.

This self-winding movement, born in the 21st century, features a brand new pendulum with novel shapes, which effectively improves the winding efficiency. The weight of a new type of oscillating weight is 28% less than that of a conventional oscillating weight. It is made of platinum and iridium, the highest density metal that can be processed in existing non-toxic substances. The use of advanced materials can also make the finished product more refined, effectively reducing the thickness of the watch. The swing arm is made of carbon fiber to reduce weight and increase rigidity. The ceramic ball bearing used in the swing weight can effectively reduce friction. Both the design concept of the parts and the material characteristics they use have greatly improved the shock resistance and durability of the movement.
