The superbly finished proprietary movement 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 meters (or feet). Arcing around the top of the dial is the large-scale altitude indicator, which displays up to 5,000 meters (or 16,400 feet), with small seconds below. At 4 o'clock is the 65-hour power reserve indicator.

In pride of place at the bottom of the dial is one of two aneroid capsules measuring air pressure, with a high-precision arm multiplying by 200 the expansion and contraction of the capsules and relaying the air pressure to the two altitude indications.

Three chevron-engraved crowns wind, set, adjust, and operate the functions of the Génie 02:

1. 9 o'clock: a two-position crown both winds the movement and sets the time.

2. 2 o'clock: a screw down crown rotates both the altitude's precision-scale and large-scale to adjust for variations in air pressure.

3. 4 o'clock: a screw down crown either seals air out of the movement or allows it in (for altitude function). Just above the crown, a red band on the dial marked "SEALED" warns when the valve is unlocked.

Turning the Génie 02 Air over allows the complexity of 415-component movement to be more fully appreciated. The movement is framed by the code names of many of the world's airports, engraved around the perimeter of the caseback along with their altitudes above sea level: GVA-430M-, HND-6M-; SYD-9M-; JFK/LHR-24M; SIN-7M; DXB-19M; HKG-9M; GYD-3M; CDG-119M; MIA-2M.

The Génie 02 Air is a limited edition of 55-pieces in titanium G5 available with calibrations in either meters or feet and its retail price is CHF 120,000.

The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
