Limited to just 25 pieces and coated in a rich gold PVD this latest addition to the Geography line adds a splash of very on-trend colour with its forest green dial.
You don’t need to have followed every single watch announcement this year or last to know that green is the latest must-have colour. So enters Bravur’s limited edition GMT with a stepped green dial.
With a matt finish in the middle and a sunray finish on the outer ring it gives great clarity and helps identify at a glance where the GMT hand is read from. The sunray also adds a bit of shine to go with the gold PVD coating on the steel case.
On the back of the case is a sapphire display window where you can see the Sellita SW330-1 that powers this watch, decorated with perlage and snailing and a signature Bravur pattern etched on the rotor. Above all of that, however, is a worldtime reference table which, while potentially not the most legible thing we've ever seen, does add to the watch's utility as a travel timepiece; flip it over for a quick check on the time at your destination.
This 25 jewel movement provides a 42 hour power reserve as it vibrates at 4Hz and is water resistant up to 50m.
Fans of the brand will recognise the strong Scandinavian design language that has become the company’s signature since it was founded in 2011. From the mid-century features such as the typeface used for the applied 12, 3, 6 and 9 to the subtly knurled bezel that links it to their first venture into automatic watches, the BW003.
While GMT models are often considered a tool watch for pilots and high-flyers this modestly priced watch gives a dressier feel to the functional complication. Using the warm yellow gold PVD coating, this watch elevates itself above the rest of the Geography line in classic 1950s style.
This seems like a great entry into having a watch with a travel time complication as it’s not overpowering the watch and the design of it isn’t led by its function. Which is quite refreshing in our opinion.
This would be a great choice for a more casual traveller who isn’t too concerned about changing time zones every day and wants a watch that can be worn in pretty much any situation without having to blow all of your holiday money.
The Bravur Geography GMT green dial is limited to 25 pieces priced at £1,500.
