Swiss luxury watch manufacture DeWitt pays tribute to the artistic crafts and adorns its Classic Jewellery watch with an exceptional dial of celestial inspiration.
With this third creation, DeWitt pays an elegant tribute to the spirit of majesty and freedom of the Emperor Napoleon, a direct ancestor of Jérôme de Witt, the founder of the Manufacture. No paint is used, and the dials are crafted from powdered pigments. Powdered diamond, platinum, gold, pearl, lapis lazuli and other gemstones create a unique, delicately ethereal design.
After its first two dials inspired by the Japanese spring, the DeWitt Manufacture has chosen the Classic Jewellery watch model for this abstract interpretation of a lunar landscape.
With its pure lines and slender imperial columns, the watch’s 18-carat rose gold case highlights the delicate refinement of the dial. The 60 diamonds adorning the bezel emphasise the brilliance of this celestial design, crafted from powdered precious stones.
