With their 39mm JeanRichard Terrascope (ref. 60510D56A602-11A), the brand tries to kill two birds with one stone. First, it is the first unisex member of the Terrascope collection. Second, it is the first Terrascope that is less than 40 millimeters without the crown. Finally, you don’t have to be a huge guy to wear one of these with pride: you can be a skinny girl, too.
JeanRichard Terrascope, a relatively new family of “masculine” timekeepers has just been updated with a number of “two-tone” models that successfully combine gold and steel. Carefully mixing textures and colors, the Swiss-based brand effectively delivered one of the most attractive cushion-shaped watches currently available on the market.
The automatic JeanRichard Kind Surf Aquascope Edition (60400-11l706-FK7A) was created together with an NGO founded last year by Almudena Fernandez, a Spanish top model, in order to support kids from “socially disadvantaged environments”. It looks like by buying one of these limited-edition timekeepers, you will support a good cause.
Last week, at the Salon International de Alta Relojeria (SIAR) exhibition in Mexico, JeanRichard has presented a pair of limited edition watches. Based on their current Terrascope line, the new Terrascope Jaguar and Golden Eagle have their stainless steel cushion-shaped cases treated with scratch-resistant DLC coating and also feature unusual guilloche decor on their dials.
Mostly known for its prolific AquaScope family of cushion-shaped divers that offer a nice alternative to impressive, but heavily overpriced Panerai timekeepers, the Swiss-based manufacturer has recently added a nice “aviator” to its model range. Presented back in May during Baselworld 2013 show in titanium (ref. 60650-21G211-FK2A) and black DLC titanium (ref. 60650-21H612-21A), the JeanRichard AeroScope Automatic combines the same rugged, cushion-shaped body with a finely crafted dial of a tri-compax chronograph.
Like their recent Aquascope Diver Monocoque automatic diver, the 2013 JeanRichard Terrascope (ref. 60500-11-601-11A) is, too, about bridging the gaps. This particular time measuring device, for example, looks like a successful attempt to offer a watch, which is elegant enough to go with a business suit, but will still look great with a Canada Goose parka and a pair of Red Wings.
The Swiss Manufacture has recently revealed their dressy 1681 Collection. While the version in 18-karat rose gold with central seconds hand is sort of underwhelming, the JeanRichard 1681 Ronde Small Seconds makes a strong impression, even despite its “plebeian” stainless steel body.
With its new JeanRichard Aquascope Diver Monocoque, the Swiss brand successfully bridges the stylistic gap between its original Aquascope and the newer Highlands collections. Besides the refreshed dial, the 2013 version of the Aquascope Monocoque has also received the same self-winding movement that powers the new limited edition Highlands CDC Carbon that was released last month.
Like other members of the family, this new JeanRichard Titanium Diverscope (ref. 60130-21-61A) features an inner timer scale that is operated via the signature secondary crown on the other side of the case. Although it is not as easy to handle as an old-school rotating bezel, this timepiece may still be of some interest to a person looking for a nice diving watch that combines relatively light weight with the unique exterior styling.
The new JeanRichard Bressel 1665 Small Hour and Minute (ref. 64144-11-70A-AA6D) delivers a winning combination of a vintage-style dial, classic body, and a modern mechanism. Perhaps, its only drawback is the price that some may find too high for a product manufactured by a second-tier brand.
During the SIHH 2011 event, JeanRichard has presented its new take on their successful line of cushion-shaped watches. The Highlands Sand GMT features the familiar exterior, which is now presented in a more sanguine (if a trifle militarist) khaki color scheme and even offers a complementary calfskin leather strap with the standard textile strap that looks like it came directly from a tactical rifle.
As the name implies, the new JeanRichard Bressel Hommage a Daniel (ref. 60119-52-70A-AA6) is a tribute to the gorgeous Daniel pocket watch from the XVIII century. Created by Daniel JeanRichard just over 300 years ago at 1710, it featured a sophisticated chain and fusee mechanism, featured an egg-like case that allowed to admire the mechanism in all of its beauty, and can be considered a true marvel even in our time after three centuries of constantly accelerating technological progress.
Just like the recently presented limited-edition 2TimeZones Zirconium, the 2010 Aquascope (refs. 60140-11-61C-ACHD in black and 60140-11-11A-AC7D in white) is powered by JeanRichard’s in-house movement and is delivered in a cushion-shaped case with a pair of crowns at 3 and 9 o’clock positions.
This limited-edition JeanRichard 2TimeZones Zirconium (ref. 68130-33-11C-AA6D) is one of the coolest-looking cushion-shaped GMT watches on the market. Successfully combining its massive body and crowns with generously proportioned elements of the dial, the timepiece is not only elegant enough for you to wear it with a formal dress but is also easy to read thanks to its wide hands and a finely executed second time-zone aperture with jumping hours.
