One of the acknowledged elites of the Haute Horology, JeanRichard traces its roots to the 17th century, to a place o legend, later known as the cradle of today’s luxury watchmaking industry, the small Swiss town named La Sagne, somewhere between Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle.
Here, at the age of only 15, a visionary man named Daniel Jeanrichard, discovered, through meticulously repairing a watch brought from England, the base principles, which animate the intricate mechanism of the timepiece, and after countless hours of hard work and dedication managed to manufacture the very first Swiss-made watch.
An emblematic figure also known as the father of this elitist industry, Daniel Jeanrichard created his own watchmaking tools and useful machinery, and, after spending his entire life gathering priceless information, he drew the guiding lines of this profession, being the first of a long heirloom of master watchmakers.
Not long ago, the brand brought another sophisticated addition to its emblematic JeanRichard Sport Watch Collection, the robust new JeanRichard Diverscope JR1000 – 60130-21-61A Titanium Watch, a remarkable model, designed to please the audacious man of the 21st century.
A remarkable timepiece, the new JeanRichard Diverscope JR1000 – 60130-21-61A Titanium Watch, features a powerful, sandblasted, cushion-shaped titanium case, which measures 43 mm x 43 mm, and 13.5 mm in height. The complex architecture of the case incorporates an internal rotating bezel, two fluted crowns, a curved, glare-proof sapphire crystal and a screw-down case-back, which enables the model to withstand down to 300-meters beneath the ocean’s surface.
The model features an opaline titanium-hued dial nicely completed with white and green accents, with large, luminescent-coated hands, hour indices and an Arabic numeral, which marks the 12 o’clock position. Asides from the traditional central hours, minutes and seconds functions the model also ensures a date complication, through a small aperture, located at 3 o’clock.
Surely, a watch enthusiast connoisseur, would like to know that the model accommodates a top-quality self-winding mechanical movement, the in-house Calibre 11 1/2’’’, which incorporates 27 jewels and which oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 alternations per hour, and which provides a lengthily 48-hours power reserve.
Especially designed to by an ideal timekeeping companion for an impassionate diver, the new JeanRichard Diverscope JR1000 – 60130-21-61A Titanium Watch, embraces the wrist with a rubberized fabric strap, and will cost somewhere around $9,000.00.
