Available both with a creamy white (ref. CLA.HSA.002) and an anthracite black (ref. CLA.HSA.005) dial, the new DeWitt Classic Jumping Hour brings you that familiar exterior with a couple of off-centered dials for minutes and seconds and a small jumping hour aperture. However, while most timekeepers of this kind feature a vertical sub-dials alignment, DeWitt opted for a horizontal one and then decorated the final product with their signature art-deco styling.
If you keep a close eye on DeWitt, you probably remember the stately Academia Seconde Retrograde Serenity (refs. AC.1102.48.M030 & AC.1102.53.M040) collection that was revealed around three years ago. This automatic DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Seconde Retrograde (Ref. T8.SR.001) that the company presented during the Baselworld 2012 show, is basically the same timekeeper, which is now presented in the slimmer, more art-deco-style body. The 2012 version features an outstanding combination of rose gold and micro-blasted titanium: a new scratch-resistant alloy that was originally created for aerospace applications and is ten times harder than standard Grade 5 titanium alloy.
The upcoming Baselworld 2011 international trade show is still months away, but the media offense by major Swiss-based brands is already in full swing. DeWitt, of course, is not an exception here. Together with the new Twenty-8-Eight Regulator A.S.W. Limited Edition (Ref. T8.TH.53.004), DeWitt is going to present the new hand-wound Twenty-8-Eight Tourbillon (Ref. T8.TH.53.004) that will be available both in white and rose gold.
With its new Twenty-8-Eight Ladies Collection (Ref. T8.AU.53.003), DeWitt keeps exploring the monumental blend of art-deco style and classical Swiss watchmaking. Like the last year’s Twenty-8-Eight Regulator A.S.W. Limited Edition Tourbillon, the new collection features a similar design of the chapter ring.
DeWitt has just revealed its new self-winding Twenty-8-Eight Regulator A.S.W. limited edition (ref. T8.TA.001) equipped with their proprietary Automatic Sequential Winding system. Presented in a generously proportioned 18-karat rose gold body 46 millimeters in diameter and almost 13 millimeters thick, the watch makes an impression as strong as a stun gun discharge.
Montres DeWitt is a fairly young brand. Established only in 2003, it is still in its infancy. The lack of “heritage” doesn’t keep them from making one stunning collection after another. At the beginning of 2009, the brand has introduced yet another series of great-looking models that feature even more mature design. With its charismatic gearwheel-shaped case and swords-shaped hour and minute hands, the DeWitt Academia Seconde Retrograde Serenity (refs. AC.1102.48.M030 & AC.1102.53.M040) looks like it belongs to the dark world of The Equilibrium.
DeWitt delivers the stately Academia Night Chronograph (Ref. AC.6005.53.M255) in a massive 18-karat rose gold body of three different varieties that are inspired by long-gone days of the Golden Age that preceded the Great Depression of the 1930s. The collection’s main point of attraction is the unusual gear-shaped bezel that is matched by similarly styled sides of the massive case. Although to some the device may look a bit too extreme, it will find its share of customers even despite its obscenely high MSRP.
