The Swiss watchmaker Montres DeWitt, which is, being established only in 2003, still in its infancy, has introduced another series of models that feature really mature design. With its charismatic gearwheel-shaped case and swords-shaped hour and minute hands, the Replica DeWitt Academia Seconde Retrograde Serenity watch looks like it belongs to the dark world of the Equilibrium blockbuster movie.
Unlike most recently introduced brands, Montres DeWitt belongs to an exclusive club of manufacturers producing their own sophisticated movements independently of the omnipresent ETA SA and its numerous smaller rivals. This particular model is powered by the Calibre DW1102 automatic movement, which is a cousin of the caliber that we’ve already seen in the original Academia Seconde Retrograde series that was first presented back in 2007 and received its share of compliments from both experts and enthusiasts.
Built on 21 jewels and beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, this mechanism is claimed to be an in-house job, but is in fact based on the ETA 2892-A2 ebauche with a complication module designed by Agenhor -a Swiss-based, privately owned company that makes money developing all sorts of complications for premium watchmaking brands that lack competence and know-how to make their own- and some minor improvements. The caliber, for example, features a flat balance spring made of Glucydur, an alloy of copper, beryllium and iron, which is known for its anti-magnetic properties and particularly low coefficient of thermal expansion.
Dewitt Seconde Retrograde Replica Watches For Sale The movement has a pretty standard power reserve of 42 hours, which, taking into account the mechanisms slightly expanded functionality, is actually not that bad. Although the Serenity features the same basic layout as the original Seconde Retrograde line, stylistically it is completely different. The twelve Arabic numerals are replaced with only four Roman numerals at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. The retrograde seconds indicator looks more like a speedometer from the BMW Mini, and the slide-ruler on its dial comes in perfect harmony with the gearwheel-shaped bezel giving the watch even more industrial look.
