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 2009 Academia Seconde Retrograde Serenity collection. This 2012 DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Seconde Retrograde (Ref. T8.SR.001), is the same timekeeper in a 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 is ten times harder than standard Grade 5 titanium alloy.
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 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.
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.
