The watch-microbrand Brew NY based since 2015, launched its latest model Metric at the end of last month, a chronograph whose design is inspired by the 70s. , through the geometric shapes and the color palette.
The 36 mm by 41.5 mm square-shaped steel case in the style of old TV screens comes with a round dial, receives a brushed finish which is only interrupted by the sharp polished edges of the case and the integrated shaped bracelet and the two buttons pushers that control the chronograph. The solid case back fixed with 4 screws, is engraved with a slatted pattern and brand logo in the center, offering up to 50 meters of water resistance.
The watch is offered in two dial variants, one black with accents in green, yellow, and orange and the other in silver with accents in blue. On the dial we can find a thin inner ring with a minute scale with 1/5 second markers, rhodium applied hours batons and hour and minute hands filled with Super-LumiNova, two asymmetric counters, a 60 minuter counter at 10 o’clock, and a small seconds at 6 o’clock, a discrete aperture date window at 4 ½ o’clock and the almost imperceptible coffee bean brand logo embossed at 3 o’clock.
The new Brew comes with a hybrid movement VK68 Meca-Quartz Chronograph, which is characterized by being extremely reliable and precise, according to the brand the battery should last approximately 3 years.
The integrated slatted steel bracelet is tapered starting at 25 mm wide (although its fastening width is only 20 mm) ending at 16 mm in the folding clasp, which comes with micro-adjustments and an engraved logo. Both variants are available for a price of $ 395 and should start shipping in late August.
It is the first time that we are talking about Brew here, however, we would have liked to have done it before, as we admire their work and effort as a microbrand, however, due to lack of opportunity it had not been possible until today. Regarding the new Metric, we just loved it, for us and so far it is its most accomplished model, its design and its reduced dimensions contribute a lot, both variants are interesting however we liked more the black variant with accents in different colors that easily get a smile on your face, with regard to the price there is nothing new, Brew has always accustomed us to affordable prices and keeping the same policy, we can only applaud. Finally, just say that anyone looking for a beautiful 70s-style watch at an affordable price should seriously consider this watch.
