JeanRichard Aquascope Lady Night Watch
Handling the new for 2011 JeanRichard Aquascope Lady Night (and light model as well) I wondered who the type of woman to wear this watch might be. It could also be a man - given the fact that JeanRichard used the same 44.5mm wide steel case for this women's model as the men's model. The differences are the dial and the bezel - also the available black satin fabric strap. Development costs for this watch weren't high, but it is nice. The most appealing aspect for women will be the diamonds used on the dial for many of the hour markers. The dial is also given a new treatment, having a sort of retro 1960s look to it.
No amount of diamonds or satin straps can take away the fact that this is a dive watch at heart. It has 300 meters of water resistance and a rotating diver's bezel. Put a rubber or leather strap on it and I think men will take to it in Asia. Inside the watch is the JR1000 automatic movement that JeanRichard uses in most of its three-hand watches. As I said, the watch is available in this "Night" version, as well as a white model. Look for the JeanRichard Aquascope Lady watch soon.
