Dewitt Twenty-8-Eight Double Fuseau GMT2 Poetic

This timepiece proudly displays its aesthetic beauty and the poetic way of telling time, yet highly functional with numerous complications especially suitable for globetrotters. The new TWENTY-8-EIGHT Double Fuseau GMT2 Poetic that accurately reflects the spirit of DeWitt is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of 42 hours, and with three complications: date, GMT, and day/night indicator for the second time zone.

Its contemporary 43mm-diameter round titanium case sculpted with the 24 traditional DeWitt imperial columns plays on the contrast with the extreme refinement of the dial.

Created in-house by the Maison’s dial-makers, its rosette pattern gives structure to various decorations: sunray brushing, beige mother of pearl half-moons, and Arabic and Roman numerals in pink gold appliques, like a garden shaped by the hand of man.

The circular aperture at 12 o’clock, where the sun’s rays emerge at dawn and fade at dusk, is an interesting detail. The second time zone on the other hand is represented by a small hollow sword shaped red hand. True to its innovative and unique style, DeWitt has daringly chosen bold combinations of materials.

The new TWENTY-8-EIGHT watch also perfectly meets the highest standards of finish adopted since its creation by the DeWitt Manufacture: satin-finished, bevelled and polished surfaces. The high quality of finishes also applies to the rotor with the personalised “Côtes de Genève”. The crown also sports an engraved “W”.

With its unique aesthetic signature mixing poetry and high-end watchmaking, a truly original function display, and the combination of special materials, the new TWENTY-8-EIGHT Double Time GMT2 Poetic relinquishes a gentle harmony from within its dynamic construction.
