Feb 28, 2011
DeWitt unveils its new versions of the Twenty-8-Eight Tourbillon watch, initially introduced in 2010. The heart of the model is the first completely in-house Tourbillon movement the calibre DW8028.

The calibre DW8028 represents a manually-wound movement incorporating a solid and reliable Tourbillon mechanism. Operating at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour, it gives an advantage of a 72-hour power reserve.

The automatic Tourbillon boasts a peripheral oscillating rotor, a dead-beat second, and the Automatic Sequential Winding (A.S.W.) system patented by the brand. The balance, the escape wheel and the anchor are crafted from 18K yellow gold.

The sapphire crystal case-back of the DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Tourbillon reveals the 19-jewel movement that pleases true watch-lovers with its supreme hand-made finishing. Angled, polished and satin-finished with meticulous attention, the barrel and cage-bridges are embellished with Cotes-de-Geneve decoration.

The barrel-bridge features a little plate with the signature of the master watchmaker, as though establishing the direct connection between the customer and the watchmaker who created the timepiece (every watch is assembled, adjusted and tested from A to Z by a single master watchmaker).

The dial of the new DeWitt watch catches the glance by a set of columns that make up an imposing Art Deco construction. The lower part of the dial shows off the tourbillon and an original semi-transparent grille.

The rest of the dial is embellished with a radiating black-and-white sunray pattern and completed with Roman and Arabic numerals. The time is indicated by sward-shaped hands.

The 43mm case of the Twenty-8-Eight Tourbillon watch is sculptured from 18K white or rose gold. The bezel demonstrates polished and satin-finished columns. The flanks of the case are adorned with the brands imperial columns. The case construction also features elegant and streamlined lugs.

The DeWitt Twenty-8-Eight Tourbillon watch is presented on an alligator leather strap. The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant.
