The introduction of the revamped JeanRichard brand for 2013 brought forth a variety of beautifully designed timepieces, inspired by land, air and sea, that not only boast in a high quality product , but also in excellent price points. Today we review one of the most unique in their land series, the Terrascope 60500-11-A01-HDC0.
The first noticeable trait of this model is its gorgeous green lacquer dial. The dial color is very reminiscent of British Racing Green and along with its caramel colored vintage calfskin strap, it easily makes you think of Jaguar’s most iconic, classic cars. Just as you’ll find on the cars, the dial color has a wonderful spectrum of color depending in lighting, growing darker as the light dims until it almost reaches black.
The complex 44mm case design is 12.6mm thick and magnificently finished. With about 25 parts just for the case construction and over 70 steps to manufacture, finish and assemble, this intricate, cushion shaped design is crafted to impress and truly does so in person. The finish is a combination of a mirror like high polish that has an incredible shine, as well as vertical satin finish that adds a fine detail but will also do a nice job hiding hairline scratches.
The movement found in the Terrscope series is the JR60, which displays 3 hand time and date. The movement has 26 jewels, a minimum power reserve of 38 hours and a rate of 28,800 bph. This is one of JeanRichard’s “industrial movements” meaning it is not their in house manufactured JR1000 series, but is a base movement that has been assembled and modified at their factory in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
The hands and indexes are rhodium coated and have a beautiful shine. This does make for better legibility in darker settings, but the luminova applied to all 12 indexes and 3 hands, make for easy night time reading.
The MSRP on the JeanRichard Terrascope Green Dial 60500-11-A01-HDC0 is $2,900. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996 or check us out on AZFineTime.com.
