The Basics

The Breva Génie 02 Air combines the stunning sophistication of a beautifully crafted mechanical timepiece with the practicality of a fully functional, high-performance altimeter. Whether your passion is paragliding, flying, skydiving, hang gliding, mountain climbing, skiing, or simply enjoying the fresh air and stunning views that high altitudes offer, the Génie 02 Air is the perfect companion. The black titanium case of the Génie 02 Air offers a subtle but stunning backdrop to the high-legibility hands and markers, ensuring that essential information, i.e. time and altitude, is easily visible at a glance. The superbly finished proprietary movement, much of which can be fully appreciated through the open dial and display back, was developed exclusively for Breva by award-winning movement constructor Jean-François Mojon (Chronode). The Génie 02 Air is 100% Swiss-made, from inception to realization. The dial side of the timepiece is dominated by a sub-dial at 8 o’clock displaying hours and minutes, and the precision altimeter sub-dial at 2 o’clock displaying feet (or meters). Arcing around the top of the dial is the large-scale altitude indicator, which displays up to 16,400 feet (or 5,000 meters), with small seconds below. At 4 o’clock, an indicator is revealed when the air valve is open or closed (it must be open to indicate the altitude). Below is the 65-hour power reserve indicator.

About Breva

Breva logo

Exceedingly unusual and innovative complications – that’s Breva in a nutshell. Breva Genève founder, Vincent Dupontreué, was born just outside Paris in 1977. He had a precocious entrepreneurial spirit that had him making and selling bracelets on the beach in Corsica during holidays when just 11 years old and at 13 building and selling skateboard ramps with his brother. A job working in a … bespoke men’s clothing store at 18 led, a few years later, to the position of sales manager at Ermenegildo Zegna. Vincent Dupontreué quickly decided he wanted to run his own boutique and when that wasn’t a possibility – he was still only 22 years old – he set up his own fashion brand, called “Vincent Dupontreué”. After seven successful years Vincent Dupontreué sold his fashion brand, completed an MBA in Lausanne, Switzerland, and ran an art gallery for a couple of years. On his 33rd birthday in 2010, a desire for a nice watch ignited his entrepreneurial spirit once again and he decided to launch his own high-end Swiss brand. A beautiful weekend on Lake Como in Northern Italy provided both the inspiration for the name, Breva – ‘La Breva’ is a warm southern wind contributing to the agreeably mild micro-climate around Lake Como – and the idea of creating a mechanical timepiece that forecast the weather. After 3 years of research and development, at Baselworld 2013 Breva launched its first groundbreaking timepiece – the Génie 01, the world’s first mechanical wristwatch with time, barometer for forecasting the weather, altimeter and power reserve indications. At Baselworld 2014, the brand launched it second creation – the Génie 02 – a fully functional, high performance mechanical altimeter. Breva Genève demonstrates a radical, innovative vision of high-end watchmaking with its complications. Attached to the concept of “monitoring your environment” and driven by the spirit of innovation, Breva is the link between watchmaking tradition and modernity – developing an innovative movement with a timeless design.
