The JEANRICHARD Terrascope (Hands-On)

Back in September of 2012, we interviewed Michele Sofisti, the recently appointed CEO of the Sowind Group and - Girard Perregaux and JeanRichard. Mr. Sofisti assured us that great things were on the horizon for both brands, the latter of which is undergoing major changes from logo to design to brand positioning. Indeed, exciting things are on the horizon at BaselWorld, but we don’t have to wait until then to introduce a great piece currently available. The JEANRICHARD Terrascope is that piece, and we recently had the opportunity to strap one on for a week in New York City and see what its all about. Identified by the manufacturer as having “the earth is its realm,” the Terrascope was designed as an explorer’s watch, and named accordingly. However, with strong design cues suggesting other-than-terrestrial orientation, we can’t help but feel

SIHH 2012: JeanRichard Diverscope LPR

For JeanRichard's final showing at SIHH (they will be exhibiting at Baselworld beginning in 2013), the La-Chaux-de-Fonds watchmaking house introduced two new collections, the Highlands which was discussed here, and the Diverscope LPR. The Diverscope LPR is a diver's watch with a linear power reserve indicator; but unlike most power reserve indicators which display the remaining power reserve on the subdial, this one displays it inside the 12 o'clock Arabic numeral. Like a typical fuel gauge, it displays full to empty, vertically. The Diverscope Liner Power Reserve is powered by a caliber JR1010, a variant of the brand's base caliber JR1000 in-house movement, which reflects the addition of the power reserve. The self-winding movement has 26 jewels, a frequency of 28,800 vph (4Hz) and a 48-hour power reserve. It features Cotes de Geneve, bevelling and perlage finishes. Functions include

SIHH 2010: Jean Richard Aquascope

Jean Richard has just unveiled a new diver's watch, the Aquascope. Like all of the timepieces made by Jean Richard, this watch is powered by the JR1000 (an in-house movement). This model was created to pay homage to the unique dive watches that were created by Jean Richard in the 1960s. The Aquascope stainless steel case is polished and satin-finished. The case features the brand's signature tonneau shape and is (44.50 x 40 x 11.85mm). The crystal is convex with a colorless anti-reflective treatment. To calculate dive time, the external bezel features a 60-minute scale, with 120 teeth (for half-minute settings). The bezel is bi-directional, whereas most dive watches feature unidirectional bezels, this is because the bezel cannot be accidentally adjusted without first unscrewing the crown at 9 o'clock. Water-resistance is 300 meters.
