DeWitt 2019

ref. AC.GMT.002
Men's

Earth seen from the sky: the latest proposition from micro-manufacture DeWitt captures the GMT function in a textured terrestrial globe which as it rotates - driven by a chain made all in one piece from 192 components - indicates day/night with its two colours. This spectacular sight is given pride of place at 6 o'clock, directly beneath local time and the second time zone at 12 o'clock. Design-wise, the accent is on a highly contemporary aesthetic, embodied in the barely-there dial which shows off the balance wheel and the graceful bridge supporting it. This multi-layered architecture is accentuated by the impressive 46mm diameter of the blackened titanium case with, all around, De Witt's signature imperial columns.
