The Haute Horlogerie brands Girard-Perregaux and JeanRichard are included under the holding company Sowind Group that also includes Sowind Manufacture, which develops and produces a complete portfolio of high-end watch movements (more than 100 variants) and collections of mechanical watches.
JEANRICHARD is a Swiss watchmaking Manufacture that designs and creates high-quality watches, combining traditional expertise with a spirit of innovation that draws directly on the technical skills of its Research & Development department.
Based in La Chaux-de-Fonds, in Switzerland, the Brand enjoys a high degree of creative and technical independence, which enables it to develop and produce its movements and cases in-house.
JEANRICHARD is thus one of the very few Swiss watchmaking brands to produce its own mechanical movements entirely within its own workshops. With roots going back to 1681 and linked to the watchmaking genius Daniel JeanRichard (famed as one of the founders of the watchmaking industry in the region), the Brand was taken over by the Sowind Group in 1988. JEANRICHARD has been successfully reinterpreting time ever since, producing a dynamic, contemporary style inspired by a spirit of innovation. Each
JEANRICHARD creation expresses a strong sense of identity and benefits from the Brand’s outstanding expertise and passion for opening up new horizons.
