Up for sale is a brand new, never used, never worn JeanRichard Terrascope Chronograph Carbon watch, limited edition of 200.  This watch comes with all of the original packaging, JR rubber strap with titanium fold over buckle, and a 2 year warranty.  Original retail is $9,300.  Ashford usually has them on sale on eBay for a bit over $3,900, so this is quite a bargain for an exquisite piece of workmanship. You can see from the pictures that the carbon fiber is formed in sheets and then machined into the final shape.  The whole case (except for the titanium caseback) is made from carbon fiber this way.  This is a very expensive way of making a watch.  Although you can see the layers of carbon fiber and it looks striated, the actual surface of the watch is machined buttery smooth.  The carbon fiber manufacturing method is described as such:   The carbon used in the JeanRichard isn't forged carbon, it's unidirectional carbon fiber that appears to have been made into blocks and then machined down. Seems similar to the NPTP Richard Mille uses; I haven't really seen anything else similar used in watches. Theoretically, machining down blocks of carbon the way JR does it would be more expensive and difficult to do than forging or using a small cut-out layup the way Oris does.   Just for comparison, the Richard Mille carbon fiber watch made using the same methodology costs $105,000 Euro!  This same watch can also be seen discounted here:  Here are the specs for the watch:
