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.
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.
