We’ve had no shortage of retro-future throwback style watches this year, from A100 ‘Ripley’ Casios to Hamilton’s PRS, and now Brew is jumping in on the action with a new 8-Bit Brew based on the Retrograph chronograph. Showcasing a set of pixelated hands, pixel art graphics, and bright colors, this dial feels like stepping inside of a CRT screen hooked up to an NES in the late ‘80s. Yes, the coffee theme is still present, and this watch is still unmistakably a Brew.
The 8-Bit Brew is built in a radially brushed, 2 part steel cushion case that measures 38mm across and 41.5mm tall. It’s just 10.4mm in thickness thanks to the Seiko VK64 Meca-Quartz inside. It’s the same situation we know and love in the Retrograph, but the real star of the show here is the unique dial execution.
