Pre-Baselworld 2014 2014 - JeanRichard 1681 Blue
This is the first time ever JeanRichard has turned blue. I mean, not on any timepiece, but definitely on their flagship collection, the JeanRichard 1681 Blue, where 1681 stands for the year Daniel Jean Richard created his first timepiece in La Chaux de Fonds. And which represents the only model actually powered by a full in-house movement. Made in two versions: a stainless steel model and a rose gold one, both boasting a 44mm wide satin and mirror finished case.
The stainless steel JeanRichard 1681 Blue adopts the JR1000 caliber with a central seconds hand, while the rose gold one is powered by caliber JR1090, which adds the small seconds complication at 9 o' clock, delicious! Both models showcase not only a 48 hours power reserve and a 4Hz frequency, but mostly a lacquered blue dial, where rodium plated or rose gold indexes are applied respectively. The stainless steel model sports a Barenia leather bracelet, replaced by an alligator strap matching the rose gold case. Further information and full live coverage to be provided later this month, at Baselworld!
