DeWitt @ Academia Tourbillon Force Constante à Chaîne Haute Joaillerie


In 2008, DeWitt introduced an emblematic and highly complicated masterpiece which is Academia Tourbillon Force Constante. This year, DeWitt will represent a Haute Joaillerie version “Academia Tourbillon Force Constante à Chaîne Haute Joaillerie”. Main feature of the timepiece is the innovative Constant Force regulating system, which maintains the force at a constant level in order to keep the timepiece at a steady status at all times. The watch is housed with a manually wound mechanical movement integrating a Flying Tourbillon mechanism with Constant Force and an entirely hand-crafted miniature chain. Additional functions of the watch include frequency as high as 21,600a/h, and a power reserve of 72 hours indicated on a worm screw with chain-driven device, and also a water resistance of 30 meters. Academia Tourbillon Force Constante à Chaîne Haute Joaillerie not only features complicated functions, but is also very exquisitely designed. It features a black mother-of-pearl dial with a 43mm case entirely set with 103 baguette-cut diamonds and 34 brilliant-cut diamonds, a total of about 17.19cts. The Chaîne is set between the barrel and the power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock position, which is responsible for transmitting the force from the barrel to the indicator to show its wearer the winding status of the timepiece. Special power reserve indicator comes into red, yellow and green, all three bright colours serve to add a touch to the design of the mechanical timepiece. The extraordinary Academia Tourbillon Force Constante à Chaîne Haute Joaillerie, together with a number of the brand’s remarkable timepieces was showcased at World Brand Piazza 2014 sponsored by Prince Jewellery & Watch Company from the 3rd to the 7th of September.
