Say hello to new JeanRichard Terrascope

Dark dial meets shiny stainless steel – the latest addition to the Terrascope collection by JeanRichard offers some new stylistic elements, namely a new dial color, combined with the good old stainless steel, as seen on some of the earlier models of the collection. Both sporty and elegant, this timepiece aims at gentlemen who prefer their watches rugged, but not lacking in style. And it is the latter which gives the watch a certain charm, without compromising its masculine look.

The case features vertically satin-finished stainless steel as its chief material. The diameter of 44 mm clearly indicates that this is a gentlemen’s watch, though there are bigger watches on the market. Nevertheless, the latest Terrascope makes a strong visual statement, and gives the impression of a solid and rugged watch. The overall shape of the watch remained the same, including the round bezel on the cushion-shaped case. The rugged aspect of the watch is, among other things, most notably present in the form of water-resistance: 100 meters should be more than enough for everyday use.

The overall shape remains the same

Inside, the JR60 self-winding movement  powers the functions of the watch. Apart from the standard ones (hours, minutes and seconds), the watch also displays date. The power reserve of this movement is 42 hours, which is pretty much the standard lately and should be quite sufficient. Unfortunately, all the intricacies of this machinery cannot be observed form the back, as we’re used to lately in many manufacturers’ models. Instead, we have a stainless steel case-back with engraved JeanRichard logo.

Moving onto the dial – this time JeanRichard opted for a black vertically satin-finished dial, which nicely contrasts the stainless steel of the rest of the watch. No hour numerals, but on the outer ring of the watch face, there are numerals denoting seconds. Luminescent indexes make for an improved visibility, and the same material can be found on the rhodium-coated hands. The hands themselves are quite large compared to size of the dial, especially the hour hand, which dominates the dial. Complementing the two lays a small second hand, with its tip in red color. Finally, the date aperture at 3 o’clock position completes the impression, and fits in nicely with the rest of the components. Protecting the dial is the sapphire crystal, which makes sure that visibility is optimal in all weather conditions.

Beautiful engraving on the case-back

Of course, what would better complete a stainless steel watch, than a corresponding stainless steel bracelet! With its style it perfectly continues the visual theme started with the case. The bracelet is not a new feature though; it has been present in the earlier models of the Terrascope collection. To ensure a firm grip, the bracelet has a stainless steel folding buckle, which nicely matches its style.

JeanRichard also offers more stylish versions of Terrascope with leather strap paired with lighter-colored dials; if all-stainless steel is a bit “too much” for your taste. The latest version offers beautiful visual contrast with well-known mechanical qualities that gentlemen will appreciate. Sport and elegant – yes, it’s possible.
