A new brand to AZ Fine Time, Jean Richard, has recently partnered up with daredevil and tight wire artist Nik Wallenda. This coming Sunday, Nik will attempt to walk across the Grand Canyon, over 1,500 ft high, without the security of a safety net. Nik comes from a family of tight rope walkers. Over 200 years and 7 generations have been involved in this aerobatic act, and Nik is no exception. He has trained immensely in order to ensure his safety, and is more than confident in accomplishing this feat. To see the event live as it happens, you can tune into the Discovery Channel or Discovery.com at 8pm EST or 5pm PST.
We are looking forward to receiving the Jean Richard brand in store by the beginning of July. They have some truly incredible timepieces, which you can see HERE. Other brand ambassadors for Jean Richard include yachtsman Franck Cammas, wildlife photographer Nick Brandt, and heroic pilot Capt. Chesley Sullenberger.
