It is not too late to get to the topic. Two-door, four-seater, twelve-cylinder. Although this is a watch website, today we are going to see a car, an authentic luxury GT sports car.
When faced with Aston Martin’s new DB11, I almost forgot my identity. The sensory enjoyment of this large luxury GT sports car far exceeds any luxury watch. Although many luxury watches have the same or even higher value than this DB11. But in the face of this huge 4-wheeled creature with a length of nearly 5 meters, a width of more than 2 meters, and a slender head, it seems too small and inadequate. Of all the vehicles I have encountered, the GT sports car has an extraordinary charm. Compared to those two-seater sports cars that have no room for even a wash bag after being seated by a co-driver, a large GT sports car can not only sit in a family of three, but also put two sets of golf in the trunk. Golf equipment. When the start button is pressed, it can growl out of almost the fastest speed on the planet. This type of vehicle that combines technology, speed, practicality and some artistic elements is simply the best road machine in the world.
Aston Martin DB11
Aston Martin DB11 is the successor to DB9. If you want to ask why it is not the DB10, because the DB10 has been listed as a James Bond 007 special vehicle by Aston Martin, it will not be mass-produced, and the DB11 is a real mass-production model. The new DB11 in front of me made the Rapide and Vantage beside it look overshadowed. The new design language alone has made it an eye-catching tool before having to understand its performance data at all. The near golden ratio of the body (1/3 of the front and 2/3 of the body) and the new aerodynamic design make the DB11 significantly different from the previous model. The aerodynamic design of this DB11 is subtle. The largest monolithic front cover in the automotive industry makes the DB11 no longer have a traditional fender, and the airflow openings above the wheels can quickly extract the airflow from the wheels to form a negative pressure that is beneficial to the front of the vehicle body to produce a larger Down pressure. The diversion channel of the body’s C-pillar directly leads to the rear of the vehicle, allowing the airflow entering the channel to exit upward from the air holes above the rear of the vehicle, forming a virtual rear wing, allowing the upward exhaust air to merge with the air flowing through the roof to form a high pressure. The lower part brings down pressure. Even with my eyes when I look at the watch every day, I can see that the aerodynamic design of the Aston Martin DB11 is absolutely rare and advanced in road models.
More surprising things are hidden under the front cover. A 5.2-liter 12-cylinder twin-turbo engine. The DB11 is Aston Martin’s first turbocharged supercar. Forced air intake brings 608 horsepower and 700 Nm of maximum torque. This is the most powerful engine in the Aston Martin DB series ever. The resulting 3.9 seconds acceleration of 100 kilometers and a maximum speed of 322 kilometers per hour make the DB11 the strongest and fastest acceleration in the DB series. , The model is not comparable to the previous generation DB9 (DB9 takes 4.6 seconds to break the hundred, and a rapid speed of 295 km / h).
Aston Martin DB11 interior
As a new member of the 12-cylinder world, the BD11’s book data is not comparable to the 12-cylinder models of Lamborghini and Ferrari, but don’t forget that the DB11 is a large luxury GT sports car. In addition to speed, more importantly, it also has luxury Custom leather interior, 4 seats (two full-size ISOFIX child seat connectors in the back row), and a huge practical space for luggage. The 12-cylinders from bullfighting and prancing horses can only ride your lover on the co-driver. If you have extra personnel and luggage, please call a taxi.
The domestic price of Aston Martin DB11 has been announced, and the price is RMB 3.288 million. This also reminds me of what kind of watch the future owners of DB11 need to wear in order to show their identity and status consistent with this luxury GT sports car. Do people who disagree with this idea think that driving a sports car really requires a watch? I think so. The DB11 is not an extreme 12-cylinder track machine at all. We never need racing helmets and gloves when driving the DB11. Obviously, only a luxury watch will cherish this luxury GT.
There are thousands of watches in the world, which one can form a beautiful match with DB11. First I thought of Omega.
Aston Martin DB10 and Omega Seamaster 300 are standard in the film.
There is no doubt that Omega looks like a suitable choice. All 007 generations wore Omega in one hand and drove the world with Aston Martin DB (except for the first few Rolexes). Aston Martin without Omega is just a car, Aston Martin with Omega is a Bond tank. From the latest 007 arsenal, an Omega Seamaster 300 diving watch is the perfect choice to match the DB11. 007 is wearing this watch driving Aston Martin DB10 on the streets of London. This replica Omega diving watch is also the current Omega popular style, with a retro look, but it is completely made using the latest Swiss watchmaking technology. Especially the liquid metal ceramic bezel with outstanding anti-scratch performance and the first coaxial escapement movement with the first magnetic resistance of 15,000 Gaussian altar are leading the altar, even Omega’s unique technology, which also makes Omega hippocampus The 300 has become one of the best diving watches available today. In addition, the Omega Seamaster 007 limited edition watch also looks like a good choice. The unique 007 limited logo on each watch can make everyone who sits on the DB11 feel clearly. This watch and this An inevitable connection between Aston Martins. Omega and Aston Martin are definitely a partner. Wear your watch and press the engine start button to enjoy the world while enjoying it.
Omega seems to have been the perfect choice. All this is beyond reproach in the movie, but in the real world I have a small problem. Question of value. Whether it is the Omega Seamaster 300 or the Omega Seamaster 007 Limited Watch, their prices seem to lack confidence in front of the DB11. Indeed, the starting price of more than 40,000 yuan is seriously inadequate for those who have DB11. Don’t forget, in addition to displaying time, the Omega Seamaster 300 of 007 also has a time bomb function. I think your watch does not need the ability to blow up the bad guy’s nest at all. Therefore, the solution to the problem is also very simple. A gold head gold chain or K gold or platinum seahorse will directly enhance the deterrent power of this watch in front of DB11. More than 200,000 K gold hippocampus or more than 400,000 yuan platinum hippocampus is not suitable for 007 to blow up baddies, but it is definitely suitable for gripping the wrist of the DB11 steering wheel.
The luxurious ‘golden eye’ of the all-gold seahorse is also a suitable choice.
Of course, one Omega is not enough. Even for this brand new DB11, more should be added.
Someone will definitely say that Patek Philippe, Lange, Audemars Piguet are not very suitable. Yes, I don’t deny it, but when the DB11 faded in front of my eyes and exposed the wonderful body, I thought of a watch that was perfect for it. Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin have a long tradition of friendship. Jaeger-LeCoultre has launched a variety of watches for Aston Martin, including the well-known Jaeger-LeCoultre Aston Martin AMVox 1 alarm watch and subvert the conventional, Jaeger-LeCoultre Aston Martin by pressing the mirror to control the timer function AMVOX chronograph. Both watches have high taste and good value. In addition, in the Jaeger-LeCoultre watches that we can see, the Jaeger-LeCoultre series will also form the best combination with DB11. The value of this new structure watch, which is around 300,000 yuan, is basically 1/10 of DB11. Of course, the value of Jaeger-LeCoultre biplane watches with enamel dial or platinum case will be close to RMB 600,000. And the top style bi-wing tourbillon will reach more than 1.7 million yuan. Compared to the Omega Seahorse, which only has a time display, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Biplane series watches show more technical elements. It looks like the DB11, which is more closely related to the aerodynamic design. Jaeger-LeCoultre series watches, regardless of the biplane chronograph, biplane moon phase, biplane tourbillon, any biplane watch has a new movement gear train design, the watch movement has two power chains (two barrels), One drive complication (timing, moon phase, tourbillon, etc.), the other drives normal travel, and the two power chains eventually merge into one on the escapement, sharing a set of escapement and balance wheel. The advantage of Jaeger-LeCoultre wings is that although the complex functions are driven, the two power chains do not interfere with each other, the watch’s clockwork torque output is stable, and the watch’s swing will not be unstable due to the effects of complex functions, so the travel time is accurate.
Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin had a close cooperation at one time and launched a cooperation model.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Tourbillon may be an option equivalent to DB11.
In reality, no one of us actually cares too much about whether the accuracy of the watch is 1 second faster or 1 second slower. Just like Lamborghini’s 12-cylinder Daniels is 100 seconds faster than the DB11, but it doesn’t matter. More importantly, the sensory enjoyment and luxury brought by the exquisite structure of Jaeger-LeCoultre or DB11 are what we need most. As the owner of DB11, you should lock your watch in your safe. In addition to the above, it should also include Richard Mille, Greubel Forsey and other deterrent guys. When we face DB11, we should be talking about those high-value outstanding watches or watches full of legendary stories. After all, don’t let your watch live up to the best GT sports car on the planet.
