Jeanrichard Terrascope GMT

This is an attractive watch by Jeanrichard, with the 44-mm cushion-shaped case and bezel in contrasting bright and brushed steel, and the extra GMT hand for a second time zone outlined in blue and indicating the time on an inner 24-hour scale. The watch is available in three colour versions, with grey dial (as shown), blue dial and black dial. One of the interesting features on the dial is the index design. While in previous Terrascope models, the indices were applied to the dial, in this version they are suspended from the outer chapter ring, and so create a small shadow on the dial, increasing the sense of depth and complexity.

The watch has a “Rubbergator” rubber strap with printed alligator texture with stainless steel folding buckle. The case is 12.6 mm thick, water resistant to 100 metres.

Movement

The watch is powered by the automatic JR62 movement, running at 4 Hertz (28,800 vph) visible through the sapphire caseback. The movement is probably the ETA 2893-2, with stop-second function, and all date, time and 24-hour hand adjustments performed from the crown. 42 hours power reserve.
