After rendering this iconic timepiece in elegant black, blue and white shades of lacquer, the DeWitt Manufacture now presents the Academia Out of Time with its dial lacquered in a chocolate colour tone highlighted by specks of gold.
Housed in a round 42.5 mm diameter case, the Academia Out of Time watch is driven by an automatic DeWitt calibre indicating the hours, minutes and seconds, and entirely developed, produced and assembled by hand by the master watchmakers at the Meyrin Manufacture in Geneva.
These 2 functions represent the opposition between real time, in the form of regulator function of the dead-beat seconds hand that momentarily halts at each second, and virtual time, freely following its wild and endless course.
Creating an interplay of contrasting effects through the combination of traditional and innovative materials, the Academia Out of Time's case is crafted in 18-carat rose gold and black rubber, with a subtle recreation of the famous imperial columns, the distinctive signature of DeWitt watch creations.
Like all DeWitt watch creations, it perfectly meets the very high standard of finishes endorsed by the Manufacture. There are two small "W" signatures on the crown and on the buckle.
