JEANRICHARD participates in the 5th edition of “Le Cabinet de Curiosités of Thomas Erber” with a highlight made in mystic midnight blue. The number of the very special Terrascope edition is limited to eight pieces only, playing tribute to the Asian culture. The frame of the automatic timepiece consists of a blue eloxed aluminium middlecase, bezel and laterals inserts, which provide the solid foundation of this limited edition. It is held in a polished and vertically satin-finished aluminium case. The black crown as well as the case back are made of lightweight titanium. The timepiece features a special “CDC-SIWILAI” engraving with the symbols of the concept store as well as of the CDC on the back. The blue dial is embellished with an artistic threedimensional camouflage print that complements the eclectic blue of the whole watch.
The hands come in blue steel with red luminescent material, while the JEANRICHARD logo and “Terrascope” lettering are held in classic white. Additionally, the timepiece features the brand new “Rubbergator” strap – a revolution among the bracelets, made of 100% water resistant rubber that has the same look and the feel of an alligator skin down to the smallest details.
