GENIE 01 by Breva

May 2013

New brand Breva claims that this is the world’s first wristwatch with time, altimeter and barometer. By recording the difference in pressure in a small chamber with a semi-vacuum, the Génie can display both air pressure and altitude. And since recent changes in air pressure are a reliable means of forecasting the weather, the small sub-dial at 2 o’clock features handy pictograms that show the weather forecast at a glance. The innovative and proprietary movement behind this was developed exclusively for Breva by Jean-François Mojon/Chronode and has a power reserve of 65 hours. The Génie 01 is available with a 45mm case in white or rose gold.
