Dec 09, 2010
The horological company DeWitt takes great pride in announcing its new Twenty-8-Eight Regulator A.S.W. limited edition watch, which upholds the highest levels of quality and craftsmanship.

Equipped with the brand’s proprietary automatic sequential winding system, the new DeWitt watch is offered in a round-shaped case, crafted from 18-carat rose gold. It stands 12.87 mm in height and has a diameter of 46 mm. On its flanks, the marvelous case is skillfully embellished with the DeWitt’s signature imperial columns pattern.

At 3 o’clock, it exposes an oversized rose gold crown. Decorated with a ring in blackened titanium, the crown is marked with the “W” monogram. The case also boasts elegant lugs, which width constitutes 23 mm. The water-resistance of the new timepiece is ensured down to 30 meters.

The case of the new Twenty-8-Eight Regulator A.S.W. limited edition watch is topped by an appealing bezel, also manufactured from the 18-carat rose gold. The bezel gently embraces a chocolate-colored dial. Its undeniable highlight is surely an image, which brings to mind art deco buildings from the New York City area. Built from rose gold, this “skyscraper” serves as a perfect frame for the opening at 6 o’clock. It generously reveals all the magic of the tourbillon mechanism.

The display also comprises Roman numerals. Taking care of hours and minutes are centralized transparent rose gold hands, created in the shape of two-edged swords. They are supported by a slender deadbeat seconds hand. The power reserve indicator is positioned at 9 o’clock. Protecting the dial is a top quality sapphire crystal. The same glass used for the screw-down back side of the model in question.

The interior life of the new timepiece is represented by a Swiss-made DW 8014 automatic movement. Its measurements are 37 mm x 6.35 mm: diameter and height indicated respectively. The caliber proudly reveals an enchanting art-deco-style ornament with Cotes de Geneve pattern. All the surfaces of the mechanism are satin-brushed, circular grained, polished and beveled.

The movement incorporates an in-house Straumann hairspring with Phillips terminal curve, produced from a fracture-resistant, self-compensating, corrosion-free and antimagnetic alloy.

Paved with 34 jewels, the caliber runs at the rate of 18,000 vibrations per hour and supplies a respectable power reserve of 72 hours.

The new DeWitt watch is accompanied by a semi-mat dark brown alligator leather strap, decorated with tone on tone stitching. The strap is closed with a triple blade folding clasp, equipped with a new security system. It sports an engraved “DeWitt” signature, which completes the features of the remarkable timepiece.

The issue of this model will be strictly limited to just 250 pieces.
