JeanRichard Watches

Yes, this is my JeanRichard watch. I call it my Little Richard. We're good pals. I put it on my wrist, and it gives me the time. It's everything I could want in a relationship. Except it'd be nice if now and then it'd play Tutti Frutti for me. Seriously, what's a watch owner gotta do.

Wind! Tornado! Hide!??? If someone was gonna spend that kind of money on a watch, there is no way they would do it on an internet deal site.

The idea of spending thousands on an unknown watch brand like "Jean Richard" is hilarious.

Sometimes it's better to be silent and let people assume you're ignorant about a subject rather than speak out and remove all doubt.

Jean Richard is not an "unknown" brand, and these watches are not a joke. Mechanical watch aficionados would most likely not put Jean Richard in the "top tier" along with the likes of Rolex, IWC, Jaeger-Le Coultre, or Piaget, but in general terms they would probably rank many of the Jean Richard watches ahead of lower tier brands such as Longines, Rado, Movado, Tutima & Sinn -- and maybe ahead of Oris, Hamilton and Mido -- depending on the complexity of the watch.

Timex is good enough for most people. Some people want (and can afford) more.

These are actually a pretty good deal. 20% better than at "The Watchery".com

These are mid-level quality swiss watches

I believe the 80% off speaks enough on how well this brand is known... I ask you, have you ever seen a Mercedes on a big discount? A John Deere tractor, Louis Vuitton clothing, Rolex watch, Hermes handbag or an Orvis fly-rod on sale? Nope. How about a big sale at Kia? A twofer on Zebco's at walmart or a Seiko watch? Yep...

I was going to get three of them, but I couldn't find any other items on the site today that interested me enough to lump in with the $5 shipping charge.

Sorry, but JeanRichard is by every standard an unknown brand. I'll point to one bit of evidence: literally all but two threads (meaning 16 out of 18 threads) on WatchUSeek (probably one of the more well-known watch sites) are ad posts by the owner of the site on behalf of JeanRichard, and of the two threads which aren't blatant advertisements, one of which talks about how JeanRichard hired Cpt. Sully from the downed jet in the Hudson as a spokesperson.

The brand is trying to get off the ground in the worst way possible: by inflating their MSRP to try and seem more expensive. Invicta has been doing this for a while, and eventually they slipped as a brand to bottom tier.

The Breitlings and Edoxes posted weeks ago were better deals, and I still had to google Edox. Edox is at least a little bit well known.

Beater car? Those are about the same price as the most expensive car I've purchased...

False. $3000 for a watch is a joke.

Or a used watch, at half the price of a new one:

I would pay that much for that watch if I had it. It's a work of art.

I've heard of Jean Richard before and have a friend that has a few. It's a well made, Swiss watch.
What concerns me is the description does not match their photos on the one I want to purchase, i.e. a rose gold bezel when it appears stainless. So until I find out, I'm hanging onto my 3k and sticking with my Movados whicb my family owns too many of. Thankful for Movado outles all over the US.

Hmmm, such a tough decision...my mortgage payment for 2 months and food...OR...an unnecessary wristwatch that keeps time (kinda) close to a chinese, battery-powered quartz watch???
Dang you all to heck Woot!!!

For that price I would expect it slow time down and allow you live twice as long!

You really shouldn't gauge the economics of others by your own. Don't worry, though, Woot also has a watch for you:

I wonder if you can get a discount if you get one with a two year AT&T or Verizon Wireless contract.

Can anyone comment on the call quality? I also didn't see resolution or screen sizes listed in the specs. GPS capable? Wifi tethering? NFC? 4gLTE?

In fact, from reading the descriptions, it would appear that these only have one app, which is a basic analog clock app. But that can't possibly be true. They wouldn't sacrifice all other features just to fit it into a wristwatch form factor.

Also, interested to know real world battery life findings.

If you buy one of these watches, do they hold value? Say I buy 1 of these $3000 watches, wear it LIGHTLY for a month and sell it. What would something like that sell for? I know some watches hold their value MUCH better than others but not sure of this company.
And I understand these watches are very expensive, but it doesn't mean its a stupid purchase. People spend money on other things that can be considered "dumber" than these watches. A smoker can pay for a watch in 2 years of non smoking, even some drinkers if they took off drinking. It all depends on how you look at it.

Not picking a fight with ANYONE here, just voicing my opinion. That is all. To each his own, this is mine.
