Just like the old-school automotive motif DeWitt is channelling in its latest watch, the independent manufacture refuses to slow down. Looking over the Academia Endless Drive, its distinguishing feature is a helical screw that cuts straight down the centre of the watch.
endless screw is linked to the power reserve’s winding system. As the 59-hour power reserve decreases, the screw rotates to show a red indicator at 12 o’clock. When the barrel is fully wound, the screw slides on its longitudinal axis and reveals a green indicator in the same spot.
The watch comes on a black satin calfskin leather strap with a polished, 18-carat rose gold, triple-folding clasp. It’s priced at $46,500 — via WatchTime
