The DeWitt Manufacture presents the Academia Chronostream II, a timepiece of timeless elegance inspired by masculine elements and the sporting world. 
The new Academia Chronostream II watch takes its inspiration from the world of sport and its design is essentially intended to appeal to a male, dynamic and sport-oriented clientèle. 
It houses a robust and reliable automatic calibre with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and a 48-hour power reserve. Its movement indicates the hours, minutes and seconds, and is equipped with a chronograph function activated by two buttons on the side of the case. 
The subtle combination of 18-karat rose gold and black rubber on the sides of the 42.5 mm diameter case highlights this watch's contemporary spirit. The imperial columns, a tribute to the historic heritage of the DeWitt family, are still present but are displayed more discreetly than on previous Academia models. 
The original Chronostream model was distinguished by its central applique, inspired by the instruments and radiator grills of vintage racing cars, while this new-generation version offers a very high degree of legibility and precision in terms of its displays. 
Its sophisticated dial has surfaces that are alternately satin-finished, polished and decorated with "Clou de Paris" motifs, and is subtly enhanced by indexes in rose gold colour tone and circles that match the case. This once again demonstrates the Manufacture's expertise in the artisan production of dials, totally assured by its workshops in Meyrin, Geneva. 
The open-worked hours and minutes hands, crafted in 18-carat rose gold, are in the form of double-edged swords, while the seconds and chronograph hands are highlighted in a traditional blue tone. 
Finally, the new Academia Chronostream II watch complies in every respect with the high standard of finishing applied by the DeWitt Manufacture since its creation, with polished, satin-finished and bevelled surfaces. We also find two small "W" signatures on the crown and buckle crafted out of rose gold. 
As for all DeWitt watch creations, the Academia Chronostream II is entirely assembled, set and inspected by a single master watchmaker.
