The JeanRichard Aquascope is a handsome Swiss watch that combines a number of interesting design elements and speaks very closely to much of what has been happening in the watch industry over the last few years. Today, I review the JeanRichard Aquascope watch. A sub-brand of Girard-Perregaux and now owned together by the Kering Group. 

I’ve recently heard reported that to some people, “JeanRichard is the new Panerai.” I don’t know about that, but in many senses new JeanRichard watches feel like scores out of Panerai’s playbook. While the concept feels derivative, you can’t help but enjoy the results. That means just a few core styles, with JeanRichard mixing and matching colors and materials to create new looks. The basic thesis of the design is to take a slightly more modern approach to the vintage-submersible style of your typical Panerai. JeanRichard first succeeds in a rather comfortable product.

JeanRichard next succeeds in a product that looks good, despite being subjected to a prodigious amount of little tweaks and changes. In steel with a black dial, the Aquascope, for example, looks excellent on most any strap color (similar to many Panerai watches) and dial color changes look equally acceptable. JeanRichard’s basic sports watch design is even so versatile the brand is able to produce a version with and without a bezel to make two distinct model families (the Aquascope and Terrascope), as well as modify the dial a bit to create the Aeroscope collection.

In my opinion, some of the basic Terrascope and Aquascope models look the best. Not only do you get a coherent and versatile design (along with a pretty darn legible dial), but you also get what I think is the essence of the brand. In order to continually have new models JeanRichard plays with the basic concept and offers unique versions such as the JeanRichard Aquascope Hokusai collection that I debuted here. Click that link for a bit more background on the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. The watch features the motif of a famous Hokusai woodblock carving titled “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa.”

The Aquascope dial is remarkably legible but unsurprisingly so, thanks to the large applied hour markers and generously sized hands. I really like the combo of the very stately arrow-shaped hour hand and the sword-style minute hand. The dial is also generously lumed and well balanced, with an attractive flange ring where the minute markers are placed. Over the dial is a flat AR-coated sapphire crystal, and around it is a uni-directional rotating diver’s bezel. I also happen to like brushed steel rotating bezels – which the Aquascope in this form has..
