Both the case and bezel are sculptured in stainless steel, dressed in vulcanized rubber. The crowns, meanwhile, are sculptured in gold. You will notice a golden section on the internal rotating bezel, which indicates the last fifteen minutes of the diving time.
Created by the automobile industry, vulcanized rubber is a special material, which was initially intended to make car tires more resistant to major temperature differences. Vulcanized rubber has also been used for manufacturing such equipment as professionals diving masks.
The JeanRichard’s infinite care lavished on details is also presented in a sand-blasted finishing, which definitely contributes to the beauty of the Diverscope JR1000 Goldwaters watch. Thus, both the case and bezel acquire an impeccable rubber surface, boasting a soft satin finishing.
Similar to other timepieces, created by the brand, the JeanRichard watch is animated by JR1000 in-house automatic mechanical Calibre 11 1/2 movement, executed entirely in the company’s ateliers. Comprising 27 jewels, the movement features a balance wheel, moving back and forth at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The watch offers a 48-hour power reserve.
The Diverscope watch has been developed for both avid divers and those watch lovers, who appreciate discrete, yet special designs.
The Diverscope JR1000 Goldwaters provides 300-meter water-resistance, which is attainable due to such specific elements as screwed crowns and a curved, colorless anti-reflective sapphire crystal, which happens to be two and a half times thicker than its traditional counterparts.
The model case, measuring 43 mm in diameter, embraces a matt black dial. Its indexes and Arabic numerals are coated with a luminous compound to make the dial visible even in the most extreme low-light situations.
Safely fastened by the screws, the two pink gold crowns provide their special functions. The crown, located at 3 o’clock, drives the hour and minute, as well as enables the watch wearer to adjust the date. The crown, placed at 9 o’clock, is related to diving: it governs the position of the bidirectional bezel, indicating the remaining diving time.
Every timepiece, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is accompanied by two straps: the first presented in rubber and the second one in rubber-coated alligator leather.
