Released for Baselworld 2014, the Génie 02 Air is a unique and, let’s be honest, fairly manly looking timepiece. In a black titanium casing, the multiple dials and markers display both time and altitude—using barometric pressure to calculate elevation from sea level to Switzerland’s highest peaks. Through the use of a small air valve (that must be open to accurately indicate altitude), two aneroid capsules are placed at the base of the dial to register air pressure and give back accurate readings. For those who have a penchant for aviation, the altitude of some of the world’s most popular airports are engraved around the perimeter of the case back including Sydney, New York, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Geneva, Dubai and Paris, for easy readings.
