JeanRichard Honors Captain Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger [Video]

January 2014

“We are privileged to have worked with Captain Sullenberger on our new “208 Seconds” Aeroscope”, said Bruno Grande, COO of JeanRichard. “The watch showcases the importance of time, Sully’s inspirational achievement in seconds of great urgency, and his efforts since then to continue to help change and improve people’s lives and support organizations such as the American Red Cross and the Rory Staunton Foundation. This is very much in line with JeanRichard’s values and philosophy of life.”

“In situations such as those on January 15, 2009, one can only rely upon your training, preparedness and the knowledge that you are serving a cause greater than yourself”, said Captain Sullenberger. “The “208 Seconds” Aeroscope I was able to design with JeanRichard also symbolizes the values of personal responsibility and I am grateful for their support of my philanthropic work.”

208 seconds made Captain Sullenberger a hero and the watch’s automatic chronograph movement perfectly embodies the spirit and respect that the Captain and JeanRichard have for time. The 208 seconds are represented by a subtle marked white and red timeline on the timepiece’s black dial.

Available on a black Barenia® calfskin strap, the JeanRichard “208 Seconds” Aeroscope is a re-interpretation of the old aviators’ watches, and with its titanium cushion-shaped case shares a man’s most enduring dream with style. Part of the proceeds of the watch will go to The American Red Cross and The Rory Staunton Foundation, two of Captain Sullenberger’s philanthropic endeavors.
