An updated pilot’s watch: Jeanrichard Aeroscope

Jeanrichard was relaunched in early 2013 with two ranges, Terrascope and 1681, and these were soon followed by Aquascope and Aeroscope. Each is linked to a certain attitude to life, with Terrascope expressing travel, the 1681 the brand’s tradition, and Aquascope and Aeroscope being self-explanatory. The Aeroscope by Jeanrichard is a reinterpretation of pilot’s watches, as denoted by the triangular motif at the top of the bezel, a reference to the World War II B-Uhr watches. The watch has a sleek alloy look due to the vertical satin-finished dials, cushion-shaped case in titanium, and grey rubber strap. The automatic JR66 movement provides 42 hours power reserve, with three chronograph subdials (small seconds at 3 o’clock, minutes at 9 o’clock, hours at 6 o’clock) and a small date window at 4-30. The movement is made in-house, with a chronograph module by Dubois-Depraz. Low-light visibility is provided by black SuperLuminova used on the Arabic numerals and indices, on the skeleton hour and minute hands, and on the tip of the red chronograph second hand. The caseback is in stainless steel. Price about €4,400.
