Meet DeWitt Blackstream Triple Complication GMT3 Watch

Apr 12, 2010
The prestigious horological company DeWitt has recently introduced its extraordinary Blackstream Triple Complication GMT3 watch, a new addition to the acclaimed Academia Collection. Encouraged by the world of sports, this timepiece is specially reserved for young and dynamic men.

In comparison with the previous GMT3 watch from the Academia collection, the Blackstream Triple Complication GMT3 watch has undergone a considerable development as for its style, shape and colors. The well-received predecessor of the novelty presented Day & Night, dissociated date and second time zone complications in a rather poetic way, utilizing bold colors and daring images on the Day & Night disc.

The new DeWitt watch boasts a black and streamlined design, borrowed from the world of aviation. The lower hour counter is created in a very distinctive style, which immediately brings to mind the plane’s cockpit. The notion of speed and mechanics is further accentuated by two aerodynamic “radiator-grilles” located at 3 and 9 o’clock. To crown it all, the Day & Night disk with its elongated and rounded bridge is reminiscent of a fuselage of a plane, gliding through the sky.

The Blackstream Triple Complication GMT3 is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement, which provides a 42-hour power reserve and runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. This reliable 26,20mm-diameter mechanism incorporates 21 jewels. It serves to indicate the functions of hours, minutes, GMT, Day & Night, as well as that of dissociated date.

The movement is inserted in a 44 mm round case, crafted from Grade 5 Titanium, black PVD and black rubber. The case is 13.25mm thick. Its flanks are embellished with the conventional 24 imperial columns. The watch case is outfitted with a bezel, which does not echo the color of the columns and therefore creates an incredible contrast with the watch, black from top to toe. The case is also equipped with a crown, rendered in Grade 5 Titanium. This element exposes a ring produced from blackened titanium and marked with the “W” signature.

The fascinating details of the movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal back.

The case is complimented by a black velvet color tone dial, adorned with a refined sunray motif. It includes the applied rhodium-plated roman numerals, Night & Day display with a yellow sun and blue starlit night sky, as well as the aforementioned two “radiator-grilles”. The applied DeWitt signature is nestled at 6 o’clock.

Pointing to the hours and minutes are open-worked hands, shaped as two-edged swords. The second time zone reveals a red open-worked hand, also sculptured in the shape of a two-edged sword. The seconds are indicated by means of small blue hand, performed in the shape of a navigation tool.

The new DeWitt Academia watch is mounted on a mat black rubber strap with a special DeWitt “imperial columns” motif. Alternatively, it can be presented on a mat black alligator leather strap. Both versions terminate in a triple-blade folding clasp, manufactured from blackened PVD Grade 5 Titanium and marked with engraved “W” signature.

The water-resistance of the watch is down to 50 meters. It has been launched in a limited edition of 250 pieces.

The novel DeWitt Academia Blackstream Triple Complication GMT3 watch offers a clever blend of elegance and ultra-modern style. This creation will surely appeal to modern men in search for unique design.
