Jean Bellecour, the inventor of a watch with 8 complications and 98 jewels and maker of exquisite wristwatches for women during her long career as Jean Bellecour Faubourg Collection.

I was asked by Jean Bellecour to photograph his new line of women quartz timepieces called The Faubourg. I accepted their offer since I'm not one to turn down the chance to use my camera for a while.

On September 20, I got the Faubourg, and on September 20th, I requested Melissa to wear it so I could test it out.

A Compact, Elegant Quartz Watch

Watches like the Jean Bellecour Faubourg are modest. The silver-on-silver finishes are finely done, and the brushed and polished surfaces are designed to go well together. Although the steel version does have a somewhat dressier appearance, there are other variations available that tone down the class, such as a sleek black and steel model.

A simple Miyota 2035 quartz movement, which is good but not a typical quartz movement, is found within the Faubourg. Battery life should last 3-5 years, with accuracy of 20 seconds every month.

Water resistance up to 30m (99ft).

The Jean Bellecour Faubourg is suitable for everyday usage and may be worn outside in the rain or while washing hands. However, swimming or submersion are not recommended because to the water resistance.

Black Leather Strap & Stainless Steel Clasp

The strap is made of supple, comfy black crocodile-grain leather, and it has a stainless-steel buckle with engravings. It is pleasant to wear the strap and buckle for extended periods of time.

The 35mm Case From The Faubourg Fits Most Women

The Faubourg will often suit wrists nicely, especially those of ladies and men with smaller wrists. It is simple to read when used as a companion, yet it cannot be used at night since it has no lume. The mineral crystal is protected from daily knocks and bruises by being gently recessed into the bezel.
