FrontRunners: Winning Time

The MV 75 World Champion is the first in a series of MV Agusta–themed timepieces from Swiss watchmaker JeanRichard (www.jeanrichard.com). The collection, which celebrates the Italian motorcycle maker’s victories in 75 international races (through last spring), is equipped with JeanRichard’s in-house automatic movement, the JR1000. Its black carbon dial is intended to recall those on the dashboards of MV Agustas. JeanRichard will produce 575 pieces in steel, 175 in titanium, and 75 in pink gold, at prices ranging from $8,000 to $21,500.
