DeWitt – DAME DE PRESSY

DeWitt’s ladies collection truly stands out through its movements of character, the generous proportions of its models and its poetic display of time. The care given to the smallest details further testifies of the brand’s approach to Haute Horlogerie and of its continual quest for perfection. The Dame de Pressy is an extremely rare and precious horological and jewellery masterpiece dedicated to female wrists.

Its elegant lines and refined proportions are delicately covered in precious diamonds. A unique snow-setting effect is achieved by using stones of different diameters that pave the curved shapes of the watch. The mastery of the DeWitt artisans is fully displayed in the mechanical heart of the watch, where bridges, wheels and diamonds interact in a soft, subtle and beautiful way. The tiny floral patterns hand-engraved on the two half-moons at 12 and 6 hours further illustrate the impressive level of finishings achieved.

The Dame de Pressy is manually wound and mounted on a deep pink alligator leather strap. The case is adorned with 315 brilliant‐cut diamonds for a total of ~3.30 carats, and another 146 diamonds elegantly decorate the buckle.
