This piece from the DeWitt Academia collection arrives in a gold 42.5mm case housing a manufactured DeWitt dead-beat seconds caliber. The Out of Time Unique Piece dead-beat seconds hand indicates the seconds function and serves as a regulator while at the 8 o’clock position is a free seconds hand. These innovative functions highlight the contrast between real time, shown at 4 o’clock, and virtual time that is freely flowing. Setting this piece apart from the balance of the collection is an artistic blue lacquered dial of a picturesque and mountainous landscape set against a starry night sky.

Since 2003, DeWitt has merged elaborate complication design with traditional watchmaking techniques. Founded by Jérôme DeWitt, the manufacture’s first timepiece was introduced the same year of its founding, entitled Pressy Grande Complication. The model featured a tourbillon, minute repeater, fly-back chronograph and a bi-retrograde perpetual calendar housed in a 42mm platinum case with a silver, light blue and mother-of-pearl dial. Soon there after, DeWitt was awarded first price for innovation at the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève for its Academia Tourbillon Différential timepiece. Today, DeWitt’s success afforded it a 5,000 square-meter workshop where design concepts are produced and brought to fruition. Discover More.
