DeWitt - Academia Out of Time

| No comment
The approach to watchmaking of the Meyrin-based DeWitt manufacture is never ordinary. This is well demonstrated by the recently presented Academia Out of Time model.

Housed in a round 42.5 mm diameter case, the Academia Out of Time watch is driven by an automatic DeWitt calibre featuring dead beat seconds, a highly appreciated watch complication.


With dead beat seconds, the second hand advances in full steps of one second instead of the more usually smooth sweeping action of mechanical seconds. In the Academia Out of Time they are displayed in the sub-dial at 4 o'clock.

This is visually balanced by another sub-dial at 8 o'clock which, surprisingly, has no hand. To use DeWitt's own description, it features a "free seconds hand". This is a symbolic representation of the opposition between real time and virtual time which we cannot measure with conventional methods.



Entirely developed, produced and assembled in-house, the 217-component movement beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour and offers a power reserve of 65 hours.


Combining traditional and innovative materials, the Academia Out of Time's case is crafted in rose gold and black rubber, with details that recall the typical imperial columns, one of DeWitt's distinctive design elements.

The dial is available in three shades of lacquer (black, white or blue) with appliqué numerals and circles in rose gold colour tone.


A timepiece where creativity and watchmaking tradition match together, the DeWitt Academia Out of Time has a price of Swiss Francs 52,000 plus taxes. dewitt.ch
