Thread: I am so tempted .....

  1. #1

    I am so tempted .....

    Dropped by my regular AD for a lunch time chat today. I do this quite often, partly to build rapport with them, partly, to get them out of boredom during lull period, and they appreciate it.

    And I saw this......



    Jean Richard Terrascope. Basic 3 hander with date, running on SW-2000. It looks big (45mm if not mistaken), but some how, I am attracted by its looks. Pretty good finishing at that price point. Interestingly, despite it having a 100m WR rating, it doesn't have a screw down crown....interesting....

    There is also the bracelet version, tried it, felt solid, very well built, but looked chunky, and a bit on the dressy side.

    What do you think?

    Mikey: I think you have the exact same watch, except that it is on bracelet....your take on this after owning it for a while....

    I like the general shape and heft, didn't they have some coloured/textured dials in that collection. Not that there is anything wrong with a nice black.
    Is it gloss like a piano black?

    They do, but quite limited. I liked the green and purple dials as well, but I am also cautious that my attraction to any of those colors may be short live.

    And yes, it has a glossy dial.

    I am giving myself a few days to think this over...

    I had a DJR TV screen and it is one watch I really regret flipping. Great build quality and lume like on a Seiko.

    GO FOR IT!

    Cool watch for sure. I love the arrow hands and clean dial. The only problem I have with them is the price. At $3k I would rather get something else.

    i traded it for the CFB diver
    and its something i would get again
    am looking at the one with the blue wave dial

    i wore it often, its super comfy once the bracelet is sized properly
    mine was the white dial, its a glossy piano white, giving it a bit of depth

    for the price, it is very very well finished and the fit is excellent
    here's my original review

    the raised chapter rings were added details i enjoyed
    lume is bloody awesome
    it kept good time and was off and running with a few swirls of the wrist

    paid a good $ for it too, PM me if u wanna know how much

    I agree with your comments. Unfortunately (which is why I am so tempted) or fortunately, it is definitely less than $3k.

    As usual, you have always been very helpful. Thanks.

    I really like the build quality of the bracelet. Only problem is I have too many divers on bracelet, and wanted something different. The strap that comes with it is really comfortable.
