An extremely Rare limited edition of 199 pieces Daniel JeanRichard - Bressel 16012. This watch is in absolutely perfect condition and has a sapphire crystal exhibition back to view the beautiful handmade movement. It has the original box and papers and looks gorgeous on the wrist.
The history of Jeanrichard begins in the 17th century. According to the website of the Swiss brand the company began in 1681.
So, he was 16 when he created his first watch. The story goes that one day, when he was still young and had no experience of watchmaking, he was given an English watch that no longer worked.
While repairing it, he carefully studied the mechanism and decided to make one just like it himself. It is unclear if there is any evidence of Jeanrichards first watch and the story about how he got involved into watchmaking.
It reads like a short fairytale. The Jeanrichard Museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, conserves several Jeanrichard watches, including the Daniel watch from 1710. It is also unclear if this is the oldest existing watch by Jeanrichard.
At a certain point Jeanrichard was taken over by Girard-Perregaux. Both brands came into the hands of the Sowind Group SA (we dont know when).In 2008 the Kering Group buys a stake in the Sowind Group and from 2011 the Kering Group is the owner with a 50.1% stake. In 2012, the Jeanrichard brand relaunches with the support of the Kering Group.
