New JeanRichard Watch Honors Motorcycle Champ
Swiss watchmaker JeanRichard is debuting a new line of timepieces honoring the great Italian motorcycle racing champion Giacomo Agostini, known as Ago. The new collection, For Ago, stems from JeanRichard's partnership with the famous Italian motorbike brand MV Agusta, for which Agostini rode. The multi-time world champion motorcycle racer is the all-time leader in victories in motorcycle Grand Prix history. The first piece in the collection is the Bressel 1665 Chronograph Rattrapante Foudroyante Ago (above). Produced in a limited edition of only 50 pieces, with a silver or black dial, its case is crafted in palladium, a precious metal that is part of the platinum family. The watch, presented on a vintage-look brown strap, is fitted with an automatic winding mechanical movement visible through a transparent case-back displaying Ago's signature. JeanRichard also produces a collection of MV Agusta-branded timepieces.
