    JEANRICHARD pays tribute to the Mexican Golden Eagle and Jaguar

    JEANRICHARD’s Terrascope model is the brand’s go to watch for all kinds of limited edition tributes. The latest of these is to celebrate the occasion of SIAR – the Salon International de Alta Relojeria, one of the largest watch forums held in Mexico.

    Two new Limited Editions of 50 numbered timepieces pay tribute to the most emblematic members of the Mexican animal kingdom, the Golden Eagle and the Jaguar.

    Both animals have been symbols commanding the greatest respect in Mexico since the pre-Hispanic era, and it is believed that the Golden Eagle and the Jaguar represented respectively Light and Darkness in Aztec mythology.

    The Golden Eagle and the Jaguar are two species whose role is vital for the normal working of the ecosystems in which they live. They help to maintain the population balance of other species with whom they share their habitat. In line with the values of JEANRICHARD, both animals have to achieve extraordinary things – be every day heroes – in order to be able to live in an ever changing world.

    The Terrascope model, with its cushion-shaped case and large rounded bezel, has a style that is both contemporary and original, while at the same time being sober and masculine. It combines a sense of individuality with the sophistication, solidity and robustness of the numerous parts of its structure, while also being water resistant to 100 metres. This model has a self-winding JR60 movement and is equipped with a power reserve of 42 hours.

    The first version of this Limited Edition, the Golden Eagle Terrascope, dedicated to the Mexican national symbol, displays a black camouflage-style satin finish. At the bottom of the dial is a very delicate engraving depicting the most significant features of this potent bird of prey.

    The Terrascope version inspired by the Jaguar has the same camouflage-style satin finish, but this time in grey. At 6 o’clock there is a silhouette showing the features of this legendary cat.

    Both versions come with a rubber strap, black and grey respectively, and with a finely-ribbed surface, the JR signature and a folding buckle.

    With this Limited Edition, JEANRICHARD honours, and also provides financial support to the Fundación Refugio Salvaje (Wildlife Refugee Foundation), which on a daily basis is dedicated to protecting these legendary animals that are now in danger of extinction.

    Oh, haha, you're talking about actual Jaguars. I was expecting a little British Racing Green in the last watch. Very cool though, I love watches that support a good cause like that.

    I like them.

    Would've hit my spot without the eagle and jaguar on the dial.

    Kinda looks like they are striving for mediocrity with this model........
