Highlands Sand

Equipped for all kinds of adventure

The Watch Quote™ - January 27th, 2011



A revival of a JeanRichard model from the 1990s, the Highlands Sand immediately brings to mind the exploration of the great outdoors, closeness to nature and simplicity.

In the mid-1990s, the ‘Highlands by JeanRichard’ watch celebrated ‘the quintessence of nature’. Peter Beard's superb photographs, used in the brand's advertising, illustrated the fantastic and richly evocative panorama of the African landscape. JeanRichard has now reinterpreted this timepiece, which retains the character of its predecessor and is equipped for all kinds of adventure.



The most notable aspect of this watch is the significant development in the design of the case. This reprises a theme close the Brand's heart: the use of a round bezel on a tonneau middle. The aesthetics are the result of an unconventional approach based on well-defined shapes. The watch's generous proportions (44.5mmx40mm) emphasise its robust construction. The case is water-resistant to 100 m and the screw-down crown gives optimal protection. Its notched rotating bezel lends it a technical feel and allows a second time zone to be displayed. The ecru dial is directly inspired by the original. The hours are marked by large Arabic numerals and dynamic hands with a luminescent coating, offering excellent readability in even the murkiest conditions.

The JeanRichard JR1000 movement

The Highlands Sand is equipped with a fabric strap featuring a folding safety buckle perfectly adapted to the lifestyle with which it is associated. The use of the JR1000 movement, developed and manufactured in the Brand's workshops, was an obvious choice. This automatic movement, which is renowned for its reliability and production quality, can be seen through the watch's sapphire case-back.

This model is also available with a khaki dial on the Highlands Baobab or a black dial on the Highlands Ebony.
