Pre Baselworld 2015 - Jeanrichard Terrascope 39mm
Jeanrichard offers a preview of two new Terrascope, that elevate to 90 the number of variations of the most successful model of the production at La Chaux de Fonds . We are talking of two new models that feature its 39mm wide and just 10,30mm thick case (if compared to the 12,60mm thickness of the 44mm wide case). The first features a blue textured dial, with blue suspended indexes with additional luminescent dots, and comes with a Blue ostrich strap and a stainless steel folding buckle. The second comes with a stainless steel bracelet and a white matte dial that features, on its bezel, a setting of 54 diamonds of 1,60mm, Cut 32/34 and VVS clarity (0.80 cts).
In these models, both mechanical automatic watches with a balance wheel that vibrates at 4Hz and central hands, the blue hands are filled with a luminous material, and the hour hand has the unmistakable arrow-like style, typical of sporty Jeanrichard timepieces.
One of the most interesting features on both models is their transparent case back, through which one can admire the blackened winding rotor with the JR logo engraved on it; since I have yet to see it in person, I’m only guessing that this might draw inspiration from the 1681’s case back design. The Terrascope 39mm blue dial (reference 60510-11-401-QB4A) retails for 2200€, the white dial version (reference 60510D11A702-11A) for 4700€, two very competitive prices if you look at the finishes of their coussin case, in terms of design as well as of the nice mix of mirror polished and satin-finished surfaces (we therefore suggest you to take a look at one of our hands-on reviews by clicking right HERE). Further details and our hands-on review, during Baselworld 2015.
