Breva Genie 01: A Watch that Talks Weather and Time
Breva Genie 01
Of what use is a watch if it tells you the time but fails to predict the condition of the weather? Breva Genie 01 – a Jean Francois creation – gives you accurate information on the same while telling you the altitude and temperature.
The mechanical genius has been designed with the help of the Chronode watch-making movement. It makes predictions based on a gas-filled chamber that expands due to external air pressure. Taking the barometric pressure and altitude thus acquired into consideration, it tells you if a downpour is on its way.
Apparently, the Breva performs the same function as the PRX – 2000T launched by Casio a few years ago. But it costs fifteen times as much as the $1000 watch.
So what makes the timepiece such a lust-worthy buy? It comes plated with the precious metals of white and rose gold! The first costs 150,000 Swiss Francs, while the latter will set you back 145,000 Swiss Francs. The company has only created 55 pieces of each!
