Brew Watch Co. Retrograph
Brew Watches uses the espresso machine as inspiration on the Retrograph, which features hashmarks on the dial to help you time the perfect espresso shot. The Retrograph features a 316L stainless steel, 2-part 38mm cushion case, SuperLumiNova markers, 60-minute counter and 24-hour counters on the dial and lumed hands. It ships on a premium Italian leather strap and uses the Seiko VK64 mecha-quartz movement.
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. Inspired by this, 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.
Each Brew case is CNC machined out of a solid billet of 316L stainless steel. Then individually hand polished and brushed on each case profile. Finally, each watch goes through extensive testing and quality control. Ensuring the longevity of the timepiece as well as providing an accurate and reliable tool that can be worn and trusted.
