DeWitt hypnotises watch lovers with dreams of its endless screw

DeWitt’s Academia Endless Drive, which will be unveiled at SIHH next week, has an endless screw as the dial’s distinguishing feature.

The rotating endless screw is a nod to automotive mechanics, the field of inspiration preferred by the brand’s founder, Count Jérôme de Witt.

The watch is designed with a link from its winding mechanism the helical screw, so that as the 59-hour power reserve decreases, the screw rotates. When the barrel is wound, the screw slides on its longitudinal axis.

It is housed in a 42.5 mm diameter 18ct rose gold case on a black rubber strap.
