FrontRunners: Car Alarm

James D. Malcolmson

Jaeger-Lecoultre (800.552.8463, www.jaegerlecoultre.com), which once manufactured dashboard instruments, has modified its well-known Master Memovox alarm watch to create the Aston Martin Jaeger-LeCoultre Special Edition, available in steel ($8,000) or titanium (750 pieces at $8,500 each). This sporty collection features a new dial design with a 270-degree, speedometer-like arc, but the automatic Memovox movement inside is almost identical to the one Jaeger-LeCoultre introduced in 1965. A set of small wells sunk into the caseback amplifies the gong, which buzzes just loudly enough to be heard over the purr of a V-12 engine.
