In celebration of receiving our newest brand, we continue on with our reviews of the JeanRichard brand. Today we introduce the Terrascope, which obtains its inspiration from the Earth and our urge to explore its terrain. The theme behind the Terrascope, as well as the rest of the “scope” series, is exploration, utilizing different elements to divide each category.
The JeanRichard Terrascope 60500-11-401-11A has a elaborately constructed 44mm stainless steel cushion shaped case. The round bezel is finished in a vertical satin with a smooth high polish lateral surface. The bezel sits atop a satin center case with two lateral inserts finished mostly in the satin, but also has great detail in high polish as well. There are 14 different processes just to finish the case sides alone, making for the incredibly intricate case design. Along with a screw down case back and sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, the design element has proven to be very well though out and executed involving over 70 steps to complete the case.
The bracelet for this model is also uniquely designed. Also utilizing a vertical satin polish on the majority of the bracelet, the small amounts of high polish between the links give great detail. The construction is solid, and obviously very well built. The bracelet is topped off with a dual push button butterfly deployment clasp.
The dial on this piece is one of its most charismatic attributes. Using a beautiful blue lacquer, the piece can easily draw attention across the room. With such a unique and vibrant color, this piece has easily been one of the most popular styles here in our retail store. The dials applied indexes and hands are rhodium coated and “U” shaped (indexes), alternating a brushed and polished finish, adding to the legibility and also enhance the luminous material.
The luminous compound on the Terrascope is very bright and heavily applied. It glows effortlessly and makes for incredible legibility at night. With lume on the hour, minute and second hand, as well as each index, the time can easily be determined in the darkest setting.
The movement utilized is the JR60 self-winding caliber with 26 jewels, 28,800 bph and a minimal of 38 hour power reserve. The movement starts as a Selitta base SW300-1, which is then modified and assembled at JR’s atelier in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
The MSRP on this model is $3,500. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996. Don’t forget to check out more of the JeanRichard brand HERE.
