2012/01/19 - JeanRichard "Highlands Big Life" Limited Edition

In partnership with photographer Nick Brandt, JEANRICHARD is proud to support Big Life Foundation with the launch of a distinctive special edition Highlands watch. The Brand has designed a limited edition of 100 pieces especially for the occasion, featuring a PVD-coated case twinned with a green outer rotating bezel indicating a second time zone. The numerals on the sober black dial are coated with ivory-coloured luminescent material, and the “ Big Life ” signature in red makes the model’s purpose clear: to support the foundation. A striking symbol inspired by the foundation’s logo and one of Nick Brandt’s most iconic photos, an elephant transfer appears on the sapphire crystal case-back, through which the JR1000 automatic winding movement can be seen. 

The model’s technical design and the choice of colours have been conceived with the most demanding outdoor usage in mind. The model has been designed to strict technical specifications. 

The colours used and the absence of reflections make it ideal for use on a photo safari. 

Finally, the black fabric strap mounted on a folding buckle confirms the robust character of the Highlands Big Life.
