The new Academia Night Chronographe is a playful, yet highly functional spin-off from the DeWitt’s Academia Chronographe Séquentiel line. Standing out from the range of existing chronographs thanks to its extremely powerful formal signature and its sequential seconds counter, this model is continued in the Night Chronographe series. Although the aesthetic principle and the sequential read-off remain, the Night Chronographe features the additional asset of night-time readability of its information.
This watch dial, offered in two versions, is coated with white Superluminova and more surprisingly, dark, nearly-black Superluminova. The Night Chronographe is further embellished with precious metals, whereas the Chronographe Séquentiel features a blend of rose gold, titanium and rubber.
The first style in the series is housed in a case crafted from alternating white and rose gold combining rubber inserts for the version with black luminescent matter printed on the minute track and the minute and seconds counters. The dial background is black. This model comes with a rubber strap secured by an 18-carat rose gold folding clasp.
The case of the second variation is made entirely of 18-carat rose gold. The dial is printed with white luminescent matter on the minute track and the minute and seconds counters.
This version comes with an alligator strap with an 18-carat rose gold folding clasp. The Night Chronographe beats to the rhythm of a self-winding mechanical movement and has a power reserve of approximately 48 hours. It is water resistant to 50 metres.
