Could this be the Christmas pressie for the driver who has everything?
If you’re fortunate enough to own an Aston Martin DB9, this watch is the ultimate accessory – because it doubles as a plipper and key for the car.
Made by top Swiss watch maker Jaeger-LeCoultre, this is a mechanical time piece that will also lock and unlock a DB9. As the driver nears the car, all he or she need to is press the ‘open’ position, found between eight and nine ‘o clock on the face. To lock the car, the ‘close’ position is located between three and four o’ clock. Touch both buttons together and the car's headlamps come on – to help you find it in a crowded multi-storey. And, once inside, the watch acts as a transponder, allowing you to simply press the car's 'on' button and set off.
The watch face carries the DB9 logo and the case is made from titanium. The watch is available only from Aston Martin dealers. The cost? £12,426.
