DeWitt Academia Night Chronograph radiates luminous splendor
The Swiss watchmaker has presented its new DeWitt Academia Night Chronograph (Ref. AC.6005.53.M255) automatic watch.
Being in fact a spin-off of the wonderful Academia Chronograph Sequentiel series, the Academia Night features well-balanced dial with high level of night-time legibility and an intelligent-looking 43mm case crafted of white and rose gold.
Catering to the needs of the night-living part of the population, the DeWitt Academia Night Chronograph makes its point with the help of its watch dial coated with Superluminova in white and, you won’t believe it, dark, nearly-black colors.
Combined, these two strontium aluminate-based photoluminescents printed on the minute track and the minute and seconds counters make for perfect night-time legibility.
Since the Academia Night offers a not very common bi-compax dial layout, it comes with only one chronograph sub-dial (at 3 o’clock) and is capable of measuring time intervals no longer that 29 minutes and 59 seconds.
The peculiarly looking sub-dial at 9 o’clock is in fact the signature sequential seconds counter.
The model, as you can see on the pictures, is available in two versions.
One, with a rubber wrist-strap with gold folding clasps, features a white and rose gold case with rubber inserts.
The second, coming with an alligator strap, is made entirely of 18-carat rose gold.
Inside the case is hidden an automatic self-winding movement with 48 hours of power reserve.
The Swiss watchmaker doesn’t specify, which caliber exactly did they use in this gorgeous, art deco-styled watch, but, judging by the live images of the new Academia Night, the movement has been built with extreme love even to the smallest details.
The oscillating weight of its winding system, for example, is decorated with numerous DeWitt logos and is entirely crafted of rose gold.
The caliber seems to be quite thin, too, since the watch is delivered in a case, which is only 13 millimeters thick.
Expect a price of about $30,000.
