Brew watches have a new Espresso model online an as you’d expect it features a coffee brown dial, with some of that Gold Blend vibe in the case. Not infringing trademarks or anything, just a gold PVD coating.
Like many Brew watches it has the TV dial layout, with a sapphire crystal and meca-quartz movement inside. Retails at $375, plus import tax and shipping for UK buyers.
Here’s some background from Brew Watch;
In the early 1930s a specific category of chronograph watches were nicknamed telephone timers. They were designed with special markings that highlighted a range between every 3 minutes on the subdial register. After each 3 minute marker was reached, it would remind the wearer that they would need to insert another coin in the meter to continue their call.
Similar to this method of counting seconds and minutes with a direct correlation to the wearers action – the Retrograph has specific markers that specify when the optimal espresso shot has been extracted. The time for this ranges from 25 to 35 seconds – depending on the barista and the machine.
