This Watch is Packing a Whole Weather Station on Your Wrist
Want to climb a mountain, but still stay stylish? Breva Geneve's first offering from last year - the Genie 01, puts a whole weather station on your wrist. It is powered by an ingenious mechanical barometer inside. This year, the watchmaker has a second piece, called the Genie 02 Terra.
The new watch will use the same mechanism inside the Genie 01 for displaying the altitude. The watch is centered around a pair of sealed metal aneroid capsules that expand and contract based on the air pressure which is constantly changing based on altitude.
Available soon in a very limited run of just 55 pieces, the Genie 02 Terra will sell for $132,000. Which means, if you're climbing a mountain wearing that, you're probably very rich. And adventurous. [Breva Geneve via A Blog To Watch]
