At the beginning of 2009, the Maison dedicated to "Ago" the Bressel 1665 Chronograph Rattrapante Foudroyante in a limited and numbered edition of just 50 pieces. During his visit, "Ago" had the opportunity to admire JeanRichard's watches: "In the field of high-performance mechanical sports, it is said that one must be as accurate as a watchmaker. Faced with the precision in the assembly of extremely small elements, I understand why they are considered a reference!" - declared Giacomo Agostini.
