JEANRICHARD Celebrates Captain Sully with Two New Collections

You know him as the pilot who safely landed a disabled US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River in 2009 after it struck a flock of geese, saving the lives of 155 passengers and crew members on board. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger is an American hero, retired airline captain, aviation safety expert and best-selling author. Because his career is one to be celebrated, Swiss watchmaker JEANRICHARD is proud to announce its partnership with Captain Sully, introducing two new collections, 1681 and Terrascope, that stay true to the brand’s philosophy of powerful design and reliable performance.

“Sully is not only an individual with profoundly admirable qualities under pressure, as we saw in 2009 with his emergency landing on the Hudson,” Bruno Grande, COO of JEANRICHARD, said. “He is also one who has taken advantage of the opportunities presented and channeled his energy towards the improvement and encouragement of aviation safety and safety in other arenas. We are very proud to have him as a part of the JEANRICHARD family and look forward to continued success together.”

“JEANRICHARD’s Philosophy of Life truly speaks to me,” Captain Sully said. “The beauty of the watches, the passions of its artisans and managers, and even more importantly their idea of working together on projects that are close to my heart and spirit made me happy to join the JEANRICHARD flight.”

Both the 1681 and Terrascope collections meld pleasing design with extraordinary mechanics, respecting the brand’s long history of excellent craftsmanship. To learn more about JEANRICHARD and these memorable collections, visit
