The new DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Double Fuseau GMT 2 Poetic perfectly reflects the brand’s spirit with its 24 DeWitt imperial columns and the reliable self-winding movement. Furthermore, it features a beautifully encrusted dial that catches the eye at first glance.
The new DeWitt’s watch is housed in a modern, titanium case sculpted with the 24 traditional DeWitt imperial columns which plays on the contrast with its sophisticated dial. The case with satin-finished, beveled and polished surfaces measures 43mm in diameter and 12.25mm in thickness. The case is constructed to resist water pressure of up to 30 meters (circa 100 feet).
Watchmaking complications, aesthetics and poetry
The beating heart of the Twenty-8-Eight Double Fuseau GMT 2 Poetic watch is the in-house made caliber DW2002 that provides no less than 42 hours of power reserve when fully wound. The self-winding movement oscillates at the frequency of 28,000 vibrations per hour and features three complications: date, GMT, and day/night indicator for the second time zone. It is fitted with a DeWitt designed oscillating mass with Côtes de Genève pattern.
The most impressive part of the new watch is its complexly structured dial which is created by the in-house dial makers. The dial features a rosette pattern which gives structure to various decorations: a sunray pattern, half moons at the four quarter hours in beige mother-of-pearl, pink gold Roman numerals for the hours at the four quarters, pink gold Arabic minute numerals around the perimeter and applied pink-gold minute markers.
The second time zone indication is presented by a small, red skeletonized sword-shaped hand. The day/night display is situated at the 12 o’clock position and it continues the poetic theme of the watch. There is also a date window which is located on the opposite side, at the 6 o’clock position.
DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Double Fuseau GMT 2 Poetic (ref. T8.POE.001) is issued in the limited quantity of only 99 pieces. Each of them comes accessorized with an elegant, black alligator leather strap, fitted with a titanium pin buckle.
