DeWitt Perpetual Calendar Nebula GMT Inspired by Galaxy

Oct 07, 2008
The Quantieme Perpetuel Nebula GMT (also called Academia Perpetual Calendar Nebula GMT) is a new timekeeping creation from the House of DeWitt, inspired by a spiral-shaped galaxy, nicely reproduced on the silicium plate of the watch's dial. The one-of-a-kind galaxy reproduction depicts NGC 1300, one of the galaxies of Eridan, a planetary nebula, or star cloud, that is 85 million light years from Planet Earth.

The Quantieme Perpetuel Nebula GMT is a true masterpiece of sophisticated construction and miniaturization, based on the meticulous research to come up with a successful combination of innovative materials and unique technical characteristics.

The new DeWitt perpetual calendar watch accommodates mechanical self-winding Calibre DW7021, keeping track of the passing time by showing the date, day, month and moon phases. The timepiece also provides a dual time-zone indication with help of a dedicated red hand.

Due to the intrinsic mechanical complexity of the movement, the Quantieme Perpetuel Nebula GMT takes into account the varying durations of every month, whether it is 31-, 30- or 28-day long, as well as the leap-year cycle and February 29th.

The calendar information is clearly displayed via originally positioned sub-dials. In a clockwise direction, the sub-dials respectively show the day of the week, the 24-hour graduated GMT indication (along with a central red dual time-zone pointer), leap years, months and the day of the month along with the calendar display.

The upper part of the dial reveals the beauty of celestial infinity via a silicium plate depicting the NGC 1300 nebula in blue, as well as a day/night disc that rotates against a star-studded background.

The split-level dial touches imagination by its mother-of-pearl moon and the night sky crafted from Goldfluss. This material represents synthetic glass, produced from copper, implying an ancient process of firing in the kiln. It was discovered in Venice in the 17th century, having given rise to the famous Murano glass.

The case of the Nebula watch, 43 mm in diameter, is crafted from original combination of gold, titanium and ceramics. The case construction incorporates a notched bezel, a signature feature of the brand, now featuring 12 indentations. The sapphire crystal case-back allows to drop a glance at the sophisticated movement in operation. The timepiece boasts 30-meter water resistance.

The Quantieme Perpetuel Nebula GMT has been created in two versions. The first version features a white gold case with titanium middle and ceramic inserts, and a grey lower dial section. The second version is distinguished by a rose and white gold case with titanium middle and ceramic inserts, and an anthracite lower dial section. Both versions reveal the 'Cotes de Geneve' motif.

The Academia Perpetual Calendar Nebula GMT watch from DeWitt embraces the wrist with a black alligator leather strap fitted with rose or white gold folding clasp.
