Racing driver Ollie Millroy joins the JEANRICHARD family at full throttle

November 1, 2014 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

JEANRICHARD will now partner with the English racing driver and speed enthusiast Ollie Millroy.

The Briton will become part of the JEANRICHARD Family circle of Friends of the Brand and Philosophers of Life, who live their life to the fullest, and have the passion for challenges, without being extreme people.

“It is an honor to be selected as a Friend of the Brand JEANRICHARD and to be able to carry the mutual values into the world of international motorsport. As it’s a sport that essentially revolves around racing against the clock, it’s a perfect arena to promote a modern, stylish watch brand such as JEANRICHARD and I really look forward to wearing my new Aeroscope three hands at my next races in Asia and beyond”, said Ollie Millroy.

Ollie Millroy’s experience in racing started in his early years on the kart circuit, where he had his first involvement with the exciting world of “speed”. When he later in life progressed into international karting, he followed a remarkable path and won several championships, such as the British ICA 2006 and the Italian Winter Cup, also in 2006. He was then selected as a scholarship driver for BMW Motorsport and in 2012, his professional career led him into GT racing, where he was signed up by legendary sportscar team and Le Mans 24hr winners, Ecurie Ecosse.

The partnership between Ollie Millroy and JEANRICHARD is based upon the mutual principles as well as the common Philosophy of Life to experience a new journey every day.

What the Swiss Luxury Watch Manufacturer communicates through its four collections, Ollie Millroy experiences on the racing track. The driver faces challenges of life on a daily basis, by constantly embarking upon ambitious pursuits to excel on the racing track. JEANRICHARD creates timepieces for people just like him – authentic everyday heroes who are aware of every moment in life and live it to the fullest.

“It is fantastic to have such a young spirit, being part of the JEANRICHARD team. We appreciate the values that he shares with us and are proud to have a representative who always shows such a passionate performance on the racing track amongst our ranks”, said Bruno Grande, Managing Director of JEANRICHARD. “In the thrilling world of auto motor sports you need a strong mentality and a clear focus. This attitude is incorporated with the dynamic and immaculate design of the watch, while sharing the reliable attributes and accuracy, found in all JEANRICHARD timepieces.”

Ollie Millroy will be sporting a JEANRICHARD Aeroscope three hands with a titanium case. Just like a flight instrument, the Aeroscope 3 Hands watch features optimum reading of its displays even in semi-darkness. The stick indexes and Arabic numerals made out of Billight, a mixture of resin and Superluminova that gives a lucid effect to the entire index, and not just to its upper surface. The bezel has a minute-circle marked out with 5-minute gradations, enabling the wearer to read the time at a glance.

The JEANRICHARD Aeroscope three hands is available with different dial treatments in black, white, grey, green and dark blue with a grainy finish. As a final detail, it features a rubber strap fitted with a folding buckle.
