DeWitt Furtive Petit Seconde

The Automatic Small Second, or Petite Seconde is the latest addition to DeWitt’s Furtive Collection. Its contemporary allure is inspired by the world of sports, with an elegance and restraint aiming to please those who love wide open spaces, on land or sea.

With its high-performance automatic calibre and a power reserve of 42 hours, it is distinguished from the other models in the collection by a small seconds counter at 6 o’clock.

On the upper part of the dial, a black sunray motif highlights the silvered index appliques, design to suggest a speedometer or the bridge of a ship. On the lower part, the stripes of metallic appliques against a wood-colour background highlight the small seconds counter at 6 o’clock.

The curved 42 mm steel case features polished and satin-finished surfaces which contrast with the black PVD to reinforce the graphic and optical effects.

The new Furtive line meets the high standards of finish adopted by the DeWitt Manufacture since its creation: satin-finished, polished and chamfered surfaces.

The high quality of finishing work continues on the case back, stamped with “Clous de Paris” decoration and featuring a medallion carrying the brand logo. There is also a “W” engraved on the crown. The timepiece is offered on a metal bracelet or a black rubber strap.
