The latest addition of the DeWitt family of watches is the Twenty-8-Eight Full Moon Watch that comes with a pretty unusual dial with a moon phase complication.
A partially skeletonized left side of the unconventional dial looks like an atlas with relief and contours displayed, which provides a dreamlike vision of the world. On the right side is the inky blueness of celestial infinity, encrusted with a plaque of Goldfluss, a type of glittering synthetic glass, produced with copper in a low-oxygen reducing atmosphere using an ancient firing process discovered in Venice in the 12th century.
The moon phase display is located at the 6 o’clock position and it comprises two mother-of-pearl moons that play opposite each other with a unique interpretation of the cycles of life. The moon phase is actually reminiscent of an old-time telescope, with the moon passing through the “eye” of the telescope. The moon phase module is developed and manufactured entirely in house. The dial also comprises applied Roman and Arabic indexes made of rose gold which complete the overall look.
The Twenty-8-Eight Full Moon Watch is housed in a brushed and polished titanium case that measures 43mm in diameter. The round mid-sized case is encrusted with the brand’s signature imperial columns. The new DeWitt watch is equipped with the robust caliber that provides at least 42 hours of power reserve. The automatic movement has the frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz).
Finally, the watch is secured to the wearer’s wrist with a black alligator leather strap, fitted with a folding titanium buckle.
