SIHH 2011: JeanRichard Titanium Diverscope
by Kyle Stults on November 10, 2010

This is one sweet looking dive watch from JeanRichard.  JeanRichard is actually part of the Sowind Group, which is better known for its ownership of Girard-Perregaux.   The Obvious distinguishing feature of the new JeanRichard Diverscope Titanium is its sand-blasted titanium case.  The tonneau shaped case with round bezel is a signature of the Diverscope line.  Man does it look good, I’ll bet that this watch’s light weight defies its capability and value!

JeanRichard Titanium Diverscope

43mm sand-blasted titanium case, 300m water resistance, luminescent markers and hands, bidirectional inner rotating bezel, screw-down crowns; movement is the manufacture JR1000 (automatic); comes on a fabric+black rubber strap with sand-blasted steel folding buckle

Note the “double opposing” crowns – the 3 o’clock crown is used to set the time and date, while the one situated at 9 o’clock can be used to adjust the internal bidirectional bezel, which records the dive time.   The crowns are also “screw-down”, to prevent unintentional adjustment.  The only oddity is that JeanRichard made the buckle out of stainless steel, not titanium like the case.  Well, that and also I might have put the unidirectional crown control bezel at the 3 o’clock position instead of 9 (easier access for me as a right-hander).  All in all, though, a cool looking watch.
