Remember the watch we told you about from the party last night. The exclusive timepiece is officially known as the Aston Martin transponder watch made by Jaeger-LeCoultre and is the perfect accompaniment to the new DBS Volante. Aston Martin’s Director of Design, Marek Reichman, took time out of is busy schedule to give Top Speed a personal demonstration. The wrist watch can open and close the doors of the Aston as well as turn the lights on and off.

Did you know that James Bond originally wore a Jaeger-LeCoultre around his wrist? So it is only fitting that drop top DBS buyers can purchase an accessory that would make even Q jealous. Retailing for around $40,000 the wristwatch will easily make any new Volante owner feel just like 007.

Thank you Mr. Reichman.

I think the watch is even cooler than the car. just too bad it doesn’t act as radio key and allow its owner to simply start the car. Anyways... this is what makes a VIP !
