Flash News: Breva Genève Genie 03 Anemometer
By Thierry Ané on March 10, 2015
Less than two weeks ago, I presented the Genie 03 Speedmeter in an article featuring our live pictures and videoWatches: Breva Genève Genie 03 (+live pics & video) from the Geneva Week. With its incredible proprietary module mechanism that pops out of the dial to reveal hemispherical special alloy Robinson cups to measure the “instant speed”, Breva’s third model is truly an impressive watch. I refer the interested readers to my previous articleWatches: Breva Genève Genie 03 (+live pics & video) to find out more about what was undoubtedly one of the most exciting models on show in Geneva.

Only two months have gone by since the official launch of this great watch and Breva Genève is already offering another customised rendition: the Genie 03 Anemometer! The movement and wind/speed measurement mechanism are obviously the same. Lightweight titanium has also been used for the 44.70 x 15.70 mm case of the new limited edition.
The major change is the use of a deep blue translucent sapphire disc for the hours and minutes sub-dial in place of the smoked version found on the Genie 03 Speedmeter. In both cases, though, white gold indexes and Arabic numerals are used but the colour palette of the “speedometer” / “anemometer” dial has changed: the black ring featuring a 20 to 200 km/h (or 10 to 125 mph) scale has been replaced by a silver ring with knot graduations (5 to 65 knots) to suit the nautical theme of this new Genie 03 Anemometer. Blue touches also replace the red accents of the previous model, like for instance for the small hand.
All in all, if the Genie 03 Speedmeter was an extremely nice watch with a beautiful look, I like the Genie 03 Anemometer even better as I have always been drawn to white and blue summery-inspired watches. In any case, this is the perfect addition to this new collection as it offers a truly different alternative in terms of design. Well done!
