Breva Génie 03 Sailing description
Breva presents the new Génie 03 anemometer in a limited edition of 55 pieces — the world’s first mechanical self-winding wristwatch with a functional anemometer.
Génie 03 is fitted with a patented “instant speed” scientific measurement mechanism, with a proprietary extrusion system that creates a unique look. When extended to indicate the speed, it stands 6 mm proud of the watch itself. Within the Titanium G5 extrusion mechanism, comprised of 45 components, are hemispherical special alloy Robinson cups, in the manner of an anemometer. The classic device for measuring wind speed, it has been adapted in Génie 03 to display speeds of 5 to 65 knots.
The titanium-cased version features a deep blue-hued translucent sapphire time dial and a sweep seconds hand. The movement’s rear aspect can be observed through the crystal case back. Highlighting a micro rotor engraved with the Breva compass rose. Génie 03 is water resistant to 30 meters at all times, with the anemometer open or closed, and dust resistant even with the anemometer active. Naturally, Génie 03 performs the regular watch function of telling the time, with hours, minutes and seconds, as well as indication of power reserve. Winding is automatic, the power reserve is 70 hours.
Génie 03 Anemometer Limited Edition is fitted with a white natural rubber strap – it is comfortably and reliably secured with a titanium pin buckle.
