Built for adventure: Jean Richard Highlands Collection

The new Highlands Collection by JeanRichard is a handsome range of adventure watches. Elegant and racy, these mechanical self-winding timepieces come with black or anthracite-grey dials and matching natural rubber or plain fabric straps. Sculpted in sand-blasted steel, these new Highlands models are generously proportioned  (44.5 x 40 mm) with water-resistance to 100 metres.

Precision and resistance to corrosion, accidental knocks and extreme temperature changes make these watches totally reliable and robust travelling companions.
The Highlands models feature an automatic movement and a 42-hour power reserve. The notched aluminium rotating bezel allows for a second time zone display, an essential feature for all globetrotters.


 The muted colour choices enable the wearer to merge perfectly with even the wildest of environments. The dials come in black or anthracite grey and feature luminescent hands and numerals, allowing for perfect time visibility in all circumstances.

Each model is equipped with a strap made either of rubber or of plain fabric. The buckle is fitted with an integrated safety system.

As a tribute to Nick Brandt, the well-known animal photographer, JeanRichard also created the Highlands Big Life Foundation watch which we featured here back in November of last year. It's a limited series of 100 pieces that comes with a black PVD-coated case, combined with a green external rotating bezel allowing for the display of a second time zone. Its sober black dial features numerals in ivory-coloured luminescent material, and a signature “Big Life” indication in red.
