DeWitt is a past master of the art of channelling the famous sporting chic style. Spearheading this trend dynamically combining sporting inspiration with classical elegance, the Academia Chronostream frames the brand’s distinctively bold design with an extremely chic case in 18-carat rose gold. The design codes that have forged the success of this model are all there : a dial inspired by a racing car speedometer, two chronograph counters linked by an elegant “radiator grille”, a refined sunburst motif, a fluted bezel… The key new feature lies in the rose gold and tantalum case, a combination that lends a truly stunning effect to the 43 mm case !
