DeWitt Only Watch 2015

To support the auction, DeWitt unveils the Academia Out of Time Unique Piece watch.

DeWitt has been participating in each Only Watch sale since 2005. The Academia Out of Time Unique Piece watch offered this year is driven by a self-winding DeWitt calibre, entirely developed, produced and assembled by hand at the Meyrin Manufacture in Geneva.

This innovative watch features two elaborate complications: a dead-beat seconds hand, which serves as both a regulator and an indicator of the seconds function in the display at 4 o'clock, and a free seconds hand, a DeWitt invention, in the display at 8 o'clock.
These two functions symbolise the contrast between real time on one hand, and on the other, virtual time, which cannot be controlled, measured or recovered.


The motif on the dial – a mist given off by mountains and rising towards a clear, starry sky – seems to encourage having faith in life. It is depicted against a sky blue lacquer background highlighted by specks of silver.

The back of the 18-carat rose gold case is equipped with a sapphire crystal and engraved with the inscriptions "Unique Piece" and "1/1".
The blue alligator strap is secured with a 18-carat rose gold triple folding clasp.
