A prestigious watchmaking powerhouse, JeanRichard traces its roots to the second half of the 17th century, when it was created in a place, many times associated with the originating matrix of the entire Swiss fine horology, the Jura Mountains, somewhere between Le Locle and Chaux-de-Fonds.
The story of the brand started with a prodigy of the Swiss Haute Horology, Daniel Jeanrichard, who, at the age of only 15, mended a timepiece brought from England, and, through studying its structure, managed to bring to life the very first Swiss-made timepiece, thus initiating an entire culture, emblematic for his country.
The acknowledged father of this elitist industry, Daniel Jeanrichard, not only invented the fundamental watchmaking tools and manufacturing technologies, but he also drew the main coordinates of this profession, which passed from generation to generation, giving the world, some of the most beautiful objects of horological art.
Not long ago, the brand stunned the watch impassionate worldwide, with another charismatic, contemporary timepiece, the sophisticated JeanRichard Chronoscope MV Agusta America 65120-28-11A Watch a limited edition of 290 pieces, which celebrates the brand’s privileged partnership with the prestigious MV Agusta motorbike team.
Sophisticated and modern, the model features a robust cushion-shaped case, coated in vulcanized rubber, which measures 43 mm x 43 mm, and 14 mm in thickness. The impressive architecture of the case incorporates round black PVD-coated titanium bezel and chronograph push pieces, a fluted titanium crown, and glare-proof convex sapphire crystal, and a screw-down, tinted sapphire crystal case back, which provides a reliable 100-meter water resistance.
