The DeWitt manufacture will present its 4th concept watch, the Academia Mathematical watch in the category “Design” at WatchFair in Luxembourg. This creation is a world premiere: a mechanical watch with no hands.
Entirely designed and hand-assembled within the Manufacture by their master watchmakers, it is the born after fruit of months of research and development.
A Passion for Mathematics Expressed in a Timepiece
DeWitt’s mystery watch concept bears witness to the passionate interest in mathematics shown by its founder, Jérôme de Witt. Far removed from the conventions of traditional watchmaking, the numerals indicating the hours and minutes give the impression that they have been scattered, thrown into chaos so that in the end they can give the precise time.
Details about Academia Mathematical
This watch has no hands, but rather totally autonomous jumping numerals that come to life by lighting up in the centre of the watch to indicate the passage of time. It is thus that a grand watch complication, with its complex mechanisms and painstaking precision, places itself at the service of poetry.
Comprising 384 pieces, the Mathematical movement is based on the new DeWitt Manufacture automatic calibre, most of the components of which have been produced in-house, and all of which have been hand-assembled by their master watchmakers.
Fitted with a 42.5 mm round case in 18-carat rose gold, the Academia Mathematical watch is adorned, like all DeWitt watch creations, with the brand’s emblematic imperial columns.
Its aesthetic design and mechanical structure reflect DeWitt’s uniquely inventive approach to watchmaking, culminating in a myriad of fascinating calculations that drive relentlessly towards the nature of universal beauty.
Presented at WatchFair, Luxembourg
From 3 to 5 June the WatchFair will highlight exceptional timepieces at the Domaine Thermal de Mondorf. Besides the exhibition, WatchFair Luxembourg aims at rewarding the creativity and the know-how of Haute Horlogerie; a prestigious jury of watch lovers and connoisseurs will nominate the best watches in each category on June 3rd. http://watchfair.lu/
