Those Jean Richard watches are fantastic!

When I first saw the Terrascope (maybe 12 years ago now?) I thought they were sort of chunky ad ugly but a year or so later I was at a local gathering of some watch collectors and one of the guys there had one and I was really surprised with the quality and fit/finish in person.

I always kept an eye out for a good example but they were difficult to find on the secondhand market and at the time I didn't want to buy new. Once they brand went kaput they became even more difficult to find and prices on the secondhand market rose to more than they were going for new not too long before that.

Every once in a while I still look for one but they have definitely haven't gotten any easier to find. Prices have come back down to reality but they usually sell pretty fast. I was close to finally snagging a white faced one back in December for $600 but it sold about 10 minutes before I made up my mind. So close!

I share your thoughts, beautiful and distinctive watches.

Especially fond of this.

It's been a few months so hopefully most people won't notice???
They probably would not notice anyway unless they are keeping records. The watches look fine anyway so nobody will object to seeing them again.

That's my life these days, take the dog for a walk, wear a different watch and take photos....
