To mark its partnership with the Racing Metro 92 rugby club, Swiss luxury watch brand JEANRICHARD has created an exclusive version of its iconic Terrascope model in a limited edition of 130 pieces, personalized with the team colours.
The matte black dial features the famous Racing Metro 92 crest at 6 o’clock, showing the sky-blue-and-white stripes of the players’ shirts. The contrasting shapes of the hour and minute hands and applied hour markers highlighted with luminescent coating ensure excellent readability, enhanced by a red-tipped seconds hand.
The combination of a cushion case with a large round bezel gives an original and resolutely masculine modern style, enhanced by the refined contrast between vertical satin-brushed and polished finishes.
The black calfskin strap with its structured texture, decorated with sky blue overstitching echoing the crest, is equipped with a stainless steel folding clasp for maximum comfort.
The mechanical self-winding movement sets the pace with accuracy and reliability – in all walks of the world as well as on the turf of the stadium.
Presented on 21 September 2013 at the official launch of the partnership, the limited series “Racing Metro 92” will be available in late September in Racing Metro 92 shops and in selected JEANRICHARD outlets.

About Racing Metro 92
Founded in 1882, the club from Hauts-de-Seine was one of the pioneers of rugby in France and has been one of the major players in French rugby for over 130 years. It has also provided many players, including some leading figures, to France’s national rugby team. Five times national champion, it has now decided to infuse new life into the legendary club and has brought about a remarkable turnaround in just a few seasons.
Known for its sportsmanship and very distinctive style (including the famous sky-blue-and-white striped shirt), Racing Metro 92 also attaches great importance to fostering young talents and training. In addition to the main professional team and the original rugby school in Colombes, two new schools in Plessis-Robinson and Nanterre are maintained, complemented by an academy for the team’s best talents and a state-of-the-art training centre including a private school. Its motto is: “train men”; that is to say educate the next generation in the sporting basics of rugby, but also the values underlying the philosophy – enjoyment of the game, the nobility of hard work, fighting spirit, ambition, humility, solidarity, respect for the rules and for the opponent.
This concern to pass on the ball echoes Daniel Jeanrichard’s approach. Founder of the Neuchâtel watch industry in the late seventeenth century, this pioneer was also careful to hand down the knowledge and the spirit of excellence to future generations, and played an important role in setting up an apprenticeship system that is active to this day.
As “Official Watch” of Racing Metro 92, JEANRICHARD will be an active partner of this outstanding rugby team.
