DeWitt Academia Double Fuseau GMT Limited Edition

Swiss watch manufacture DeWitt recreates the refined aesthetics and optimal functionality of its iconic Academia collection by unveiling the new Academia Double Fuseau GMT watch which is highlighted with a blend of subtle colour combinations and rigorous watck-making mechanisms. Dedicated to the world travelers, this timepiece features an elegant second time zone indication.

The Academia Double Fuseau GMT watch has a self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. Featuring the famous DeWitt imperial column motif, the dial, with its subtle mink sunray decoration, has a counter at 12 o’clock showing the 24 hours of the day, and a date window at 6 o’clock.

The 43 mm grey gold case is fitted on a black alligator strap with large scales, creating a bold contrast between the assertive character of the Academia model and a beautiful aesthetic harmony.

This new creation also meets the very highest standards of finish adopted by the DeWitt Manufacture: satin-finished, polished and chamfered surfaces. This highquality work can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back, also revealing a delicate DeWitt rotor. For its tenth anniversary, the DeWitt workshops will produce a limited series of 20 Academia Double Fuseau GMTs.
