After the successful launches of Génie 01 (the world’s first wristwatch with time, altimeter and barometer) in 2013 and its upgraded version Génie 02 (Terre & Air models) in 2014, the young luxury watch brand from Geneva unveils this year, the Génie 03, the world’s first-ever wristwatch with a functional speedometer.
Till now, watches could only calculate speed by using an engraved scale marked in miles or kilometers per hour, using the sweep second hand or chronograph functions to calculate the speed against a measured mile or kilometer. While this would satisfy certain requirements, it was not a “real-time” indication with constant refreshing.
