DeWitt Academia Quantieme Perpetuel Sport Watch - True Racing Machine

Apr 13, 2011
The world of exclusive watchmaking welcomes the new DeWitt Academia Quantieme Perpetuel Sport watch.

The sporty timepiece is created as a true racing machine, catching the glance by its “speedy red” details. The main central applique bordered by two red and white lines symbolizes a racing track. You will also notice thin red lines rushing out the back of the brand’s logo, reminding the back lights of a car speeding through the night.

The creators of the new DeWitt watch used Grade 5 Titanium for the 44 mm case, bezel, crown, clasp and even screws. The case demonstrates a vertical satin-brushed finishing, while the bezel is embellished with a circular satin-brushed finishing.

The DeWitt Academia watch features a harmonious union of hard and soft materials – there are small black rubber inserts between the columns on the case sides and on the bezel.

At 3 and 9 o’clock, the dial is completed with two retrograde counters with little red hands indicating the date and days of the week respectively. The counters are found on top of radiator “grilles”. The thin seconds hand in the center is also flashy red. At 12 o’clock, there is a circular counter for the months and the leap year. The moon-phase complication is presented at 6 o’clock.

The Academia Quantieme Perpetuel Sport watch is animated by a self-winding mechanical movement. Operating at a frequency of 28, 800 vibrations per hour, the 29-jewel movement offers a 42-hour power-reserve. The sapphire crystal case-back reveals the beauty of the movement finishing and allows to see a fine DeWitt rotor, created in-house.

Also, a miniature “W” signature is to be found on the crown and the Grade 5 Titanium triple-blade folding clasp features a “W” shaped cover. Last but not least, just as any DeWitt watch, it is entirely assembled, adjusted and tested by a single master watchmaker, from A to Z.

The DeWitt Academia Quantieme Perpetuel Sport watch is secured to the wrist by a mat black alligator leather strap with double red stitching and fitted with a triple-blade folding clasp. The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant. It will be available in a limited edition of 50 pieces.
