Jeanrichard (company)



JeanRichard is a Swiss watch manufacturer claiming the legacy of Daniel Jeanrichard .

History

As early as 1679, aged fourteen, Daniel Jeanrichard took an interest in watchmaking and studied the mechanism of a broken-down English watch. Two years later, this self-taught artist founds his own workshop in the Neuchâtel region of Switzerland. Considered a pioneer of watchmaking in the region, he designed the tools and machinery necessary to manufacture watches and passes on his knowledge to his offspring 1 .

In 1988, the studio was bought by the group Sowind allowing the brand to expand internationally 1 .

Models

Partner of the Arsenal football club since 2014, JeanRichard proposes a model with the colors of the club, the Terrascope Chrono Carbon Arsenal, limited edition to fifty copies 2 .
