JeanRichard Terrascope Green Dial 60500-11-A01-HDC0The 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.

JeanRichard Terrascope Green Dial 60500-11-A01-HDC0The 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.

JeanRichard Aquascope Black Dial 60400-11A602-FK6AInspired by exploration of the sea, the JeanRichard Aquascope concludes our series of introductory posts about our newest line.  The Aquascope 300m Diver is  another great option from the JR lineup, taking the elements found with rest of the brand and putting the functional twist necessary for an elegant but sporty dive piece.

JeanRichard Aquascope Black Dial 60400-11A602-FK6AThe dial on this model is their vertical satin black finish with a depth and detail to it that contributes a ton of character and can easily keep the wearer staring.  The applied indexes, large hands and red arrow tipped second hand also pay a nice compliment to the dial, allowing for not only great legibility, but also a cool design that is simplistic but detailed.

JeanRichard Aquascope Black Dial 60400-11A602-FK6AAs with all JeanRichards, the elaborate and beautifully finished case is very impressive.  With the Aquascope 60400-11A602-FK6A, you have a 46mm wide, 12.6mm thick stainless steel case with black DLC coating on its inner case and stainless steel inserts on the outside of its cushion shape.  The bezel is stainless steel and has a smooth operating uni-directional 120 click ratcheting bezel.  The Aquascope’s are mostly a vertical satin finish on the case, but also have a very high quality polished finish that add an incredible amount of detail.
