The Adventurer's Watch

BREVA Genie 02

Having a watch that will tell you the altitude (altimeter) is nothing new, plenty of digital adventurer watches do just that, but how many mechanical watches do it?  Only those made by Breva.  Last year’s Breva Génie 01 was the world’s introduction to a mechanical weather station that can be worn on the wrist. Yesterday we brought you the news that Breva has released its second watch, the Breva Génie 02 Terre. Today we bring you the video on MonoTube.

For those who ski and like to know vertical feet (or meters), the Génie 02 has your needs in mind because each of the 55 limited edition pieces features  the names of Aspen, Vail, Las Lenas, Gstaad, St. Moritz, Zermatt, Courchevel, Cortina, Kitzbuhel and Lech (and their elevations) around the peremeter of the see-through caseback.  From mountaineering to skiing to casual hiking, the Breva Génie 02 Terre can handle whatever comes.

‘Time in Eternity, Eternity in Time’ – Max’s love of watches began as a boy with his attempt to emulate the fictional character, James Bond. With a vivid imagination and a prized Seiko (sorry Omega), the watch fever started albeit through a laughable impersonation. Having left boyish pretensions behind, the new daydreams include pilot watches and nautical watches. Classic Marine Chronometers, Dive Watches, and Nautically Themed Chronographs are first loves. Max’s interest in Reformed Theology, Jungian Psychology and Haute Horology means that Switzerland is an enduring focus.
