DeWitt Academia Chronostream

The Academia Chronostream is a brand new timepiece which is designed for a young, dynamic and “sporty-chic” clientele. Its speedometer inspired dial and the radiator grill between its sub dials take us to the world of racing cars. The dial is also decorated by a refined sunray pattern that brings this additional touch of character as it further enhances the sense of speed and gives the impression of travelling across time.

The Academia Chronostream houses a solid and reliable calibre and displays hours, minutes and seconds together with a chronograph function operated by two push buttons on the side of the case. The hours and minutes hands are open-worked and in the shape of two-edged swords. The seconds are displayed in a subsidiary dial at 9 o’clock. The chronograph’s main seconds hand, thin and elegant, is placed in the center and gracefully glides round the dial.

The Academia Chronostream fully complies with very demanding finishing norms of the DeWitt Manufacture: satin-brushed surfaces, polishing and bevelling. The quality of the finishing can be observed through the sapphire crystal back, which also unveils a fine DeWitt rotor, designed in-house. Also, two miniature “W” signatures are to be found on the crown and on the golden buckle. Last but not least, just as any DeWitt watch, it is entirely assembled, adjusted and tested by a single master watchmaker, from A to Z.
