Swiss luxury watch manufacture DeWitt has chosen its emblematic Academia collection to house its new standard automatic calibre, entirely designed, produced and assembled by its master watchmakers at its own Manufacture.
Equipped with a new DeWitt DW5051 automatic movement produced at the brand's Meyrin Manufacture in Geneva, the Academia Small Second watch has a central hours and minutes indication, and is equipped with a small seconds display at 6 o'clock. It operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and features a variable-inertia balance and a 65-hour power reserve. The calibre's bridges are decorated with both circular and bevelled Côtes de Genève patterns, and its circular-grained mainplate and all its finishes are hand-crafted. With a single-direction winding mechanism, the rotor is sandblasted in rhodium colour tone, with a black tungsten counterpoise.
Its black lacquer dial is produced according to DeWitt quality standards in the Manufacture's own workshops. Its upper part features a motif inspired by the Côtes de Genève pattern, while the lower part has a vertical satin finish, with both enhanced by 18-carat rose gold indexes.
With its manufactured calibre, its high-quality DeWitt dial and its exclusively hand-crafted finishes, the new Academia Small Second watch can nobly defend its 100% in-house origins.
