DE WITT'S NEW ACADEMIA SKELETON

Navigator News > Watches + Jewelry

DeWitt founder and namesake Jerome DeWitt is a descendant of Napoleon, an enthusiast collector and restorer of cars, and mathematical genius — all of which have inspired him when creating his timepieces in his Geneva-based watched manufacture.

For collectors who preferred manually wound watches, DeWitt’s new Academia Skeleton will provide plenty of curb appeal. The watch features a movement made from 263 parts inside a 42.5mm case; the front-and-back sapphire crystal provides a view that will hold the attention of all admirers.

Thanks to the double barrel, the wearer will enjoy 100 hours of power reserve. At seven o’clock there are bidirectional seconds, jumping every 30 seconds in the opposite direction, which will remind you of the windshield wipe of a car. All of this beauty is enclosed in a 10.2 mm-thick case.
