JEANRICHARD presents two limited edition Aquascopes at the prestigious BNY Mellon Boat Races

 

For the third consecutive year, the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer JEANRICHARD served as the Official Timekeeper and Timepiece of the 161st BNY Mellon Boat Race and for the first time for the Newton Women’s Boat Race. Both thrilling boat races took place on the 11th of April 2015 and resulted in the Oxford Team having their 79th victory in the BNY Mellon Boat Race and also the Oxford Team winning their 29th Newton Women’s Boat Race. For this occasion JEANRICHARD presented their respective limited edition male and female JEANRICHARD Aquascope “Boat Race” watch.

 

Thousands of live spectators and millions of TV viewers from over 200 countries followed the world-renowned BNY Mellon Boat Race, which saw the Oxford Team deciding the race in their favor in 17 minutes and 35 seconds on the 6.8-kilometre stretch on Thames River. The Newton Women’s Boat Race, which took place on the same route, also saw the Oxford Team coming out as the winner by six and a half length, in a stunning 19 minutes and 45 seconds.

 

For the 2015 event, JEANRICHARD created two limited edition Aquascope “Boat Race” timepieces for the BNY Mellon Boat Race and the Newton Women’s Boat Race. Both editions are held in the traditional colors of the race and with a double hour-marker at 12 o’clock in the shades of blue of the corresponding two teams (Dark Blue for Oxford, Light Blue for Cambridge). The Aquascope watch editions feature a water-resistant strap, with the BNY Mellon Boat Race edition having a blue rubber strap, whereas the Newton Women’s Boat Race edition comes with a “rubbergator” strap – a full rubber strap in alligator looks and in a feminine white. Both editions also feature a second’s hand that is adorned with an arrow referring to the logo of the Race and the inscription “The BNY Mellon Boat Race Oxford and Cambridge”.

 

The winning teams have shown exemplary teamwork, endurance and fervidness, values that are also embedded in JEANRICHARD’s Philosophy of Life and are the foundation of this sportive partnership.

TheJEANRICHARD Aquascope “Boat Race” watch comes in a limited and numbered edition of 160 pieces.
