With a young, contemporary and trendy feel, the Academia Stainless Steel Grande Date watch updates the DeWitt DNA with an avant-garde “sporty chic” design. Featuring the famous DeWitt imperial column motif and with the exclusive notched bezel of the Academia, the Grande Date model enters 2017 with a revisited dial and a palette of new shades. The dials are increasingly being pared back to target a young, dynamic clientèle with a passion for watches.
Crafted in the Manufacture by DeWitt’s own dial-makers, its rosette motif is the framework for an alternating pattern of sunray decorations, half-moons in beige mother-of-pearl, and rose gold-coloured appliqué Arabic and Roman numerals.
The watches are presented with an alligator strap and a folding clasp that bears the “W” signature, which also features on the crown.
The new Academia Stainless Steel Grande Date can be purchased from 6,000 Swiss Francs.
