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 Limited Edition (Ref. 60400-11l706-FK7A) was created together with an NGO that was founded last year by Almudena Fernandez, a Spanish top model, in order to support kids from “socially disadvantaged environments”. It looks like buying one of these limited edition timekeepers, you will support a good cause.
The new JeanRichard Aquascope BNY Mellon Boat Race Edition automatic diver is designed to celebrate the next rowing competition between creme de la creme of British educational establishments. Guys from Oxford and Cambridge universities will face each other next April in order to once again test each other’s skills and willpower.
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.
After the last year’s Highlands CDC Carbon limited edition, the Swiss watchmaking house is making the final preparations to put on sale its new Aeroscope-based JeanRichard Neroscope automatic chronograph. As the name implies (and, um, explicitly at that,) the timekeeper comes in an all-black color scheme with only minor accents of dark gray and white on its brushed dial. While the Highlands was offered in a rugged steel body, this Neroscope All-Black comes in a lightweight, yet still, extremely scratch-resistant case crafted from DLC-coated titanium.
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.
