A recognised pioneer in the pursuit of extremes, DeWitt once again asserts its avant-garde approach to the field of fine watchmaking. The neoclassical-inspired Academia Double Fuseau GMT2 Poetic highlights artistic crafts by demonstrating the Brand’s mastery of the noblest Swiss watchmaking traditions.
Daring combinations of materials and colours are the unmistakable signature touch of the DeWitt master-watchmakers. The Academia Double Fuseau GMT2 Poetic revisits the flagship Academia collection with considerable creativity. Framed by the famous DeWitt imperial columns, its 43 mm-diameter dial is graced by a globe motif made from “Goldfluss”.
Originally developed in Venice, “Goldfluss”, also known as gold glass, is an extremely rare synthetic crystal featuring gold and silver-coloured “teardrop” inclusions. Known for being extremely hard to work with, this exceptional material creates an astonishing depth effect on the flame-blued globe radiantly glowing against the black sunburst guilloché base of the dial entirely crafted in the company’s in-house workshops.
This exquisitely delicate design encapsulates the full measure of horological excellence cultivated by DeWitt, while providing an extremely poetic vision of time. The mechanical self-winding movement powering this timepiece features an original GMT complication: the second time zone is adjusted by pinpointing its position on the tiny globe composed of day and night sections. During the adjustment process, the earth turns counter-clockwise, thereby facilitating time-setting of the second time zone by the rotation of the small red central hand.
Playing on the delicate nuances of the colours and materials, the Academia Double Fuseau GMT2 Poetic radiates a gentle harmony blending into a dynamic rose or white gold composition. This creation is teamed with an alligator leather strap featuring a signature folding clasp in gold, which serves to fit the strap and case edge to edge by means of a dedicated insert.
