The Jacques Bianchi Revolution Limited Edition JB-200 'Meduse', a timepiece that's as rich in history as it is in functionality and aesthetics. In the realm of horology, Jacques Bianchi's name is synonymous with independent watchmaking. Born into a watchmaking family, Bianchi's destiny was cast in the ticking gears of timepieces, a destiny he has since passionately embraced.
The 'Meduse', a testament to Bianchi's unrivalled craftsmanship, is a meticulous recreation of the original JB-200 diver that was introduced in the 1980s. Inspired by the dangerous yet mesmerising jellyfish (Meduse in French), the JB-200 'Meduse' beautifully embodies the contrast of danger and allure, a quality shared by the deep sea divers this watch was originally made for.
The dial hosts large indexes and hands filled with Super-LumiNova, ensuring clarity even in low-light underwater environments.
Housing the movement is a 316L stainless steel case, a material celebrated for its resistance to corrosion, especially saltwater corrosion, making it perfect for maritime explorations. Inside the robust case beats the heart of the watch - the Seiko NH35 automatic movement. Known for its reliability and precision, it adds a layer of credibility and trust to the timepiece.
The Jacques Bianchi Revolution Limited Edition JB-200 'Meduse' is more than just a timepiece; it's an embodiment of Jacques Bianchi's enduring dedication to watchmaking. Bianchi's trajectory, from learning watchmaking at a young age to establishing his own brand in 1978 in Marseille, has been marked by an unswerving commitment to quality and precision. This watch serves as a physical manifestation of that journey. Wearing it not only means carrying a reliable timepiece on your wrist but also symbolising a tribute to the remarkable legacy of Jacques Bianchi.
