The brand belonging to the Sowind Group (Kering Group) has no own manufacturing power, depends on other companies calibers, but compensates this with a lot of creativity. Cool!
For those among who have not yet heard about Jeanrichard and/or have not seen my post dating from Baselworld please click HERE.
Jeanrichard belongs to the Sowind Group to which also Girard-Perregaux belongs; the Kering Group recently bought the Sowind Group. The Sowind´s CEO is called Michele Sofisti. More from and/or about Michele Sofisti you can find HERE.
Bruno Grande is the COO of Jeanrichard and I have to admit that he does a good job. Due to the desired positioning of his watches he can not use the very good calibers produced by the Sowind Group. Only for one model he made an exemption of the rule and he fitted an in-house movement into the watch.
But Jeanrichard has developed an incredible clever modular case that gives the brand the possibility to react quickly to any demand and to offer a wide range of models of always one and the same watch.
These pictures show the modular concept of the cases used for the Jeanrichard Terrascope and Aeroscope watches
I also have a world first for you 🙂
This is the brand new Jeanrichard Neroscope, an all black Aeroscope
A very cool watch!
And these are all other actual variations of the so-called Jeanrichard Aeroscope chronograph …
What do you think? Not bad …
One can easily compensate the lack of not (yet) having an affordable in-house by being extremely creative 🙂
